What a couple bucks will buy

Times are tough.

Pennies are being pinched. Belts tightened. Cliches used.

Sam "Money-Saving" Sessa to the rescue! ...

First up, we have happy hour at Grumpies Pour House at 25 E. Cross St. by the Cross Street Market.

$2 drafts for four hours straight?

Not bad, not bad.

Scroll down a little further. 











And, in the left corner, we have the neighboring Federal Hill Lounge's slightly earlier four-hour happy hour.

As you see, the food is free!

And all beers (as the sign notes, all beers means domestics, imports, exports, bottles, drafts, cans, kegs and eggs) are $2.

And and and -- cocktails are $2 cheaper.

Thanks, Money-Saving Sessa!

You're welcome.

However, entering these establishments after happy hour puts you at an increased risk of encountering Meatheads.

So be warned.

according to locustpoint man, $2 will buy you two slices of tomato for your burger at Mother's.
