Happy Happy Hour Day!

Have you heard the latest “buzz”? A very special day of the year is almost here and Americans are more than ready to celebrate. Get ready to raise your glass. It’s time to get happy, America! Nov. 12 is Happy Hour Day in the U.S.A (also referred to as National Happy Hour Day). While the origins of this annual "holiday" are unknown, Happy Hour Day is the perfect day to raise your glass and cheer a great tasting beer or refreshing beverage of choice!

Happy Hour traditionally takes place in the late afternoon and lasts until early evening in bars, clubs, restaurants and establishments across America. Business owners entice customers into their establishments by offering Happy Hour deals on beer, wine and cocktails. Patrons can sip on their favorite drink at a discounted price, relax with friends and enjoy the ambiance. And despite its name, Happy Hour typically lasts more than one hour.

Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur, weekend warrior or novice, why not head on over to your favorite local pub and enjoy a happy hour with co-workers? Whether you enjoy an all-time favorite beverage or try something new, invite a few of your favorite BFFs over for a fabulous wine tasting party. Or why not ask a few friends to each bring a bottle of their favorite bubbly or share a wine accessory?

Happy Happy Hour Day! Today is also Chicken Soup for the Soul Day and National Pizza with Everything (Except Anchovies) Day.
