How come you never hit up the Capitol Club for happy hour? Is it because you prefer to eat low-grade popcorn shrimp and sip cloying chardonnay at local seafood eateries? Or it that you like fighting over tables downtown as you shout to be heard over some System of a Down song? I don’t mean to be critical, I just wonder what you have against the place. I know it has changed owners a couple of times and yes, the harem chic décor harkens back a few years, to a time when we were all buying multicolored Turkish-style tables with little mirrors embedded into the wood and tossing 10,000 shimmery throw pillows on our sofas. But the tapas aren’t half bad—You should try the tortilla Española or the croquettas, both on the HH menu. And Wednesday night is half price wine bottle night, which really sweetens the deal. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I’ll be there, should you ever decide to stop by. Food menu is discounted from five to eight and ten to midnight.
