TGIF Happy Hour
Your VIP List
Invite the coworkers you've been wanting to get to know better, or break the ice with those cool neighbors down the street— drinks and appetizers never last more than a few hours, so there's no pressure to make it beyond small talk!
Leave off the boss or uptight neighbors—you deserve a night to get a little sloppy, and they don't need to see that. And speaking of sloppy—go ahead and leave out that pal who gets bar-brawl rowdy after throwing back one too many.
Shots of tequila, anyone? Or maybe margaritas on the rocks? Unpack that party-ready blender and show off your best drink-slinging skills. Don't forget the paper umbrellas.
The Grub Party Trick
Bite-sized munchies are a happy hour necessity. Think baby crabcakes, taquitos, guac and chips or spicy mixed nuts. Drag your butt to Costco to stock up on provisions on the cheap (the frozen aisle has some pretty impressive appetizers, so make it easy on yourself) because you won't feel like cooking after work on Friday!
Umm, beer pong. 'Nuff said!
