Happy Hour in Pennsylvania could be getting more flexible. State Rep. John Payne proposes to allow bars to set as many hours per day for happy hour, as long as the total doesn’t exceed 14 hours per week. Current law only permits two hours of happy per day.[NBC Philadelphia]

UPDATE: The happy hour legislation also would allow restaurant customers to purchase up to three bottles of wine from a restaurant to take off the premises. [Commonwealth Confidential]
