Finn MacCool’s Happy Hour At first glance, Finn’s might appear to be your run-of-the-mill Americanized “Irish” pub, complete with trivia night, karaoke and an official happy hour menu that only reinforces the thought: $3 drinks and $4 apps materialize both early (4-6 p.m.) and late (10 p.m.-midnight). But the bar’s magic is in its nightly rotation of 8 p.m-to-close specials. During Tuesday’s weekly beer pong tourney you can cash in on $5 High Life pitchers even if you don’t have a paddle in your hand, or drown your losses in $3 Jack Daniel’s and Jameson shots. Thursday nights-the alternate bane and fortune of college students-offers the allure of $1 Millers and $3 Jager shots that do their best to keep you from sobering up. And Sunday, for those dedicated enough to keep the streak alive, means half off everything. That’s right, everything.
