Swing by between 4 and 7 p.m. or 11 p.m. and close on weeknights to enjoy authentic food and drink at happy hour prices. Order a bottle of Magners or Smithwick’s, grab a rail drink, or opt for a glass of wine and then turn your attention to the happy hour menu of apps. The crispy, panko-crusted mac and cheese bites come with spicy chipotle aioli for dipping. The potato skins bear gooey cheese, crispy bacon, and creamy tzatziki sauce. The house-made red pepper hummus features roasted pine nuts and red pepper pesto. Choose a bite and a cocktail, sit down for dinner, or come to Finnegan’s Wake for weekend brunch.
