We rounded up our picks of five great places in the Gayborhood to grab happy hour that aren’t gay bars, but given their proximity in the ‘hood, you’ll be joined by plenty of great company as you wash down some tasty nibbles with a cocktail or two.



News From The Garces Empire: Rosa Blanca Happy Hour and French Food At Garces Trading Co.

rosa-blanca-knickknacks-940

Volver isn’t the only restaurant in the Garces family that’s getting some action these days. Because now we’ve got news coming down about fresh developments at both Garces Trading Co. and Rosa Blanca.

First, on the Cuban front, Rosa Blanca is launching a new Happy Hour program. From 4pm-6pm daily, the kitchen will be offering a menu of their classic Cuban comfort food at reduced prices, plus $6 mojitos and (this is the awesome part) a $9 all-you-can-eat empanada deal. I’m pretty sure I could bankrupt that place all alone just by stuffing my snack-hole full of all-you-can-eat empanadas, but far be it from me to have all the fun. I suggest you all attempt to do the same.

But wait, there’s more!
