To be considered truly worthy, one of the following two things must be true of a wine bar happy hour:
1. It offers good deals on good wines—half price on all by-the-glass options, for example.
2. It provides discounted but delicious snacks to pack into the mouth while sipping good wine.
It goes without saying that a wine bar HH at which both 1. and 2. are both true is a rare and astonishing thing. There are more astonishing things, I suppose, but still. It’s good.
