From Twitter user @lisaeileenlewis: Looking for a good happy hour with food specials in Dupont. Suggestions?
Dupont's happy hour circuit has gotten a huge shot in the arm over the past few months with the additions of both DGS Delicatessen and GBD. GBD's happy hour is mostly about the excellent rotating selection of beers, though, more than the nibbles.
At DGS, happy hour runs from 5 to 7 p.m. and is built around $5 "noshes." If you're only having one, the fiery brisket balls are the way to go: The arancini are stuffed with brisket, hot peppers and spices and come with creamy yogurt sauce to tame the heat. For drinks, why make it any more complicated than an above-average pickleback with a can of Genesee Cream Ale for $9?
Just off the circle, Pizzeria Paradiso's Tuesday and Wednesday happy hour, which runs from 5 to 7 p.m., knocks personal-size pizzas down to $10, while appetizers are $5. Beers are half-price, too.
The least talked-about happy hour in Dupont, though, might at St. Arnold's on Jefferson. Steaming pots of mussels (go for the L'Alsacienne or the Mussels St. Arnold's) are $10 until 6:30 p.m. with $1 off the list of mostly-Belgian beers.
Where's your go-to Dupont happy hour?
