Most of us hardly need an excuse to head to the bars after a day on the slopes, but since we all like to make excuses for ourselves this Steals and Deals is here to help. Let’s be honest, January’s snowfall has been less than stellar, and nothing calls for a cold beer more than a day of outdoor activity. Here’s a roundup of all your happy hour options in Teton Village. So when the snow is sparse but you’re out there anyway, here are some ways to cheer up at the end of a cold day.
The Village Café has a Sunday drink special for locals only. Bring your ID with you and drafts are $3. Monday through Fridays they offer the 420 Slice, so from 4:20 to 5 p.m. you can get a slice of pizza for $2.
Il Vilagio Osteria has $3 beers from noon to 5 p.m. daily. All bottled beer is included except for Guinness.
The Handle Bar has happy hour with a sense of humor. Every day from 4 to 9 p.m. you can get your run of the mill discounted drinks such as $3 PBR’s and $5 whiskey shots, but then they also throw in some fun twists such as a Monday blues night for locals to drink away their sorrows at the start of another work week and receive 20 percent off your entire bill. Or, be one of the first 24 mustached guests to walk in after 4 p.m. and get a free PBR. The Handle Bar is already well known for putting on unique and interesting events, so keep up with them on The Four Seasons Jackson Hole Facebook page so you don’t miss out on all the fun.
The Mangy Moose offers daily specials on and off throughout the year, but they’re always changing so keep your ears open for potential deals that may pop up when you least expect them.
The Spur at Teton Mountain Lodge recently opened its doors, and lucky for locals they’re offering a JHMR passholder-only special Monday through Friday that gives these lucky locals $3 draft beers. There’s also a portion of their menu, lunch and dinner, called Bar Bites that has items like deviled eggs, samosas and devil’s on horseback (dates stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon) for $4 and are sure to taste delicious with that apres beer you’ll be sipping.
At the Alpenhof Bistro, there are drink specials every Monday through Friday. They are bartender’s choice, though, so you need to stop in and find out what’s being offered that day. You can expect a 2 for 1 beer option and a $4 to $5 cocktail of the day to be on offer.
Nick Wilson’s Bar and Grill offers a variety of fun specials. For starters they have happy hour daily from 3-6pm. Don’t miss “Pork & Pint Night” on Mondays where your get 3 pork sliders for $8 and $3 pints of beer, “Taco Tuesday” offers 2 beef tacos & a PBR for $7 as well as Corona & tequila shots for $6. Thursdays are buckets of Coors Original, 6 for $18 and lastly Pizza/Calzones on Saturday is pizza slice night and $1 off wine by the glass.
If you thought you’d head back to town and skip the apres scene, but then had a sudden change of heart on the Village Road, have no fear, Calico and The Roadhouse Restaurant and Brewery give you two more opportunities for happy hour enjoyment before heading home.
At Calico happy hour happens twice, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and 8 to 9 p.m. daily. It includes: $5 spicy margaritas, a $22 pizza pie and pitcher special, $2 domestic bottles and a $10 bar menu.
Lastly, The Roadhouse offers two happy hours at their bar with 2 for 1 drinks from 5 to 6 p.m. and 8 to 9 p.m.
Many of these establishments change specials and announce special events throughout the seasons, and many of them use Facebook to get the word out. If you haven’t already done so, like Dishing and all of your other favorite local businesses on Facebook to stay in the know.
