Happy Days Are Here Again

Happy hour? More like crappy hour (watery cocktails, soggy nachos, grumpy colleagues).

What you need is Hours of Happiness, a happy hour that actually lives up to its name. Starting tonight, stop by James from 9 p.m. to midnight for a toasty fire, free homemade popcorn, roasted chestnuts, warm spiked cider, and (of course) beer specials.

Singer/songwriter Nich Bazik, a.k.a. “Your Midway Host,” will even play tunes for your entertainment. Plus, get there before 10, and you can enjoy James’s delicious canapes at a bargain — $6.

Can’t make it tonight? You can sit fireside every Tuesday throughout the winter.

A happy thought, indeed.

Hours of Happiness, Tuesdays, 10 p.m.- midnight, at James, 824 South Eighth Street (215-629-4980 or jameson8th.com).
