In Houston, happy hour means so much more than bargain-priced beer during a small early-evening window of time—though, to be clear, it means that, too. In this ultra-social city, it’s as much about the people you spend it with. Happy hour means rounding up your colleagues to blow off steam after work, giving up on cooking dinner and meeting your significant other for an inexpensive night out, or group-texting your friends to plan a Saturday afternoon that won’t break the bank. It also means you’ll be spending way longer than an hour catching up over craft beers and cocktails, and—especially in this food-frenzied town—ordering something good-and-cheap to eat, too. Just remember: Nothing makes you a hero like buying that first round.
