New Open City Happy Hour!

By Administrator

Some things in life are just designed to go together.  Patios and summer, burgers and beer, pizza and wine… perfect pairings all of them, and just the tip of the iceberg!  Here at Open City, we’re always looking for new ways to showcase the strengths of all our talents- coffee, bar, and food- and we’re pleased to announce our new Wednesday night mussel happy hour!  On Wednesday nights, join us from 5pm to closing for any of our mussels (red, white, or brew!) paired with a choice selection of red wine, white wine, or a beer for just $12.50.  Our wine and beer list is diverse and always changing, so ask your server for that night’s pairings!
