Whether you’ve had a long day at work or a great day in need of celebrating, there is something rewarding about happy hour at the local watering hole.
It seems that happy hours still carry with them the stigma that they're only available during the workweek – but that's not true at all!
More and more bars and restaurants are extending their happy hours into the weekend (and rightfully so).
We decided to take a look around the Valley to see who had weekend bar deals. It turns out, there are a lot!
With this list, we tried to pick places that didn’t just offer everyday bar food. We tried to spice it up a bit. There are a lot more bars than what is listed here. So, if you see one we missed, let us – and everyone else – know about it in the comments! Scroll down to check out our list (in no particular order).
