From its beginnings as a social time for sailors in the US Navy, happy hour has grown to be a staple of bars and restaurants everywhere. The Navy tradition began in World War I and was known as the “Happy Hour Social”. During the time of Prohibition, socializing before dinner in hidden bars and speakeasies became popular so people could enjoy alcohol without being conspicuous.
Following World War II, the economy started to boom and people enjoyed going out for drinks and dinner. Offering Happy Hour specials allowed restaurants to attract drinkers and diners, keep them longer in their establishments, and therefore gain more revenue.
PJ Lobster House is ready to help celebrate National Happy Hour Day on November 12 with our starters and drink specials. Our happy hour starters include oysters or clams on the half shell, calamari done different ways, baked clams, clams casino, scallops, and much more. Our drink specials are domestic and imported bottled beers, and craft beers including Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold, Angry Orchard Hard Cider, Port Jeff Orange Dream, New Belgium Voodoo Ranger IPA, Montauk Wave Chaser, Oyster Bay Barn Rocker Pilsner, and more!
So come out to PJ Lobster House with your friends, family, or co-workers. National Happy Hour Day is an opportunity to hang out with your friends, have a few drinks and a bite to eat, and not be embarrassed to arrange a ride home after. After all, you can save some money at happy hour and apply it to the ride later so no one has to drive after drinking. PJ Lobster House is ready to help you celebrate happy hour or any other social occasion! Visit us today at 1 North Country Road in Port Jefferson.
