Rock Box, the new private karaoke concept near the corner of Broadway and East Pine, has a daily happy hour from 4 to 8pm and all day Sunday. Sake sangria is $5, well drinks are $3 (doubles are $5), draft beers are $3.50, and karaoke is just $4 an hour.
Nearby at Octo Sushi, a Monday through Saturday happy hour (5 to 7pm) includes $6 apps—I like the agadashi tofu—and $2.50 servings of sashimi (2 pieces per order). Most intriguing? A frozen banana with ice cream for $3.
Take note too: Octo delivers to the neighborhood, and quickly. HH is dine-in only though, and the restaurant is closed on Sundays.
I was reminded this weekend that Bin on the Lake, which is a very nice restaurant in Kirkland’s Woodmark Hotel, has a huge, sweeping bar where, from 4 to 6 and 9pm to close, you can get half price on the bar menu.
In a bit of sad happy hour news, Luc has suspended its late night HH with plans to bring it back this summer.
