Local Vibes

Happy Hours can be fun and a good time to meet up with friends to blow off a little steam, especially after a productive work week.

Going to your favorite watering hole on a Friday after work in the Summer is my favorite time to relax with friends, have a cocktail, and chow down on some of the food specials offered only during happy hour.

Let’s look at the places on or near the Jersey Shore to hang with friends, let loose, and grab an adult beverage and a bite to eat.
