If you know it's going to be really bad (or really good), happy hour will start at 6am in Hollywood—appetizers are half-off and drinks like Up Cahuenga Creek (bourbon, honey-infused simple syrup, lime juice) are $6. Bring back the two-drink morning meeting, then write it off next year.
It's All W2 Much
No Taxation without Intoxication
For some, Wednesday won't be pretty. But for you, April 15th will be all-day happy hours, gratis lunch and $1 martinis—all thanks to the town's kindest-hearted barkeeps and restaurateurs who've banded together to take the sting out of tax day.
It'll be happy hour all day here, too—and to wash down the Carne Asada Pizzettas, they're throwing in some stiff "Tax-tinis" for a buck. At that price, they can call them whatever they like.
Life lesson: there's no such thing as a free lunch. Life-lesson exception: April 15th, when Ivan Kane kicks off new lunch hours at his down-the-rabbit-hole hideaway with completely free options like French Dip, Mac and Cheese and Kennebec House-Made Potato Chips.
And Downtown, this burgeoning new spot commemorates its first tax day with stiff $5 house margaritas all day long. We recommend filing, then indulging, just to be safe.
Taking their ongoing "Hard Times Happy Hour" one step further for this special occasion, the deals—$5 martini specials, and plates bringing empanadas and Smoked Mozzarella and Bacon Pizzas for $5.50—will go all night.
Don't expect discounts or cheeky giveaways at your favorite refined speakeasy—but we're told they expect to pour more than a few of the Income Tax specialty drink. It's gin, sweet and dry vermouth, orange juice and Angostura bitters, shaken and served up. It's almost too bad tax day comes but once a year. Almost.
