Option 1:

Show up at Sharkey’s at 4pm and enjoy Sharkey’s happy hour deal (which is 2 for 1 EVERYTHING) until happy hour ends at 6pm.  Then come play bocce.

If you are lucky enough to get out of work early, I recommend showing up early to Sharkey’s because they have the best happy hour in town.  Whatever you buy you get two of, and that goes for top shelf stuff, shots, wine, craft … Read More »
