The Federal - Happy Hour

Posted: Updated:

Have you noticed happy hours have become less happy and more expensive? In tonight's "Deco bites appetizer," one place is changing that on both counts.

There's something special at The Federal in the MiMo District and it happens Tuesday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Aniece Meinhold - "We're doing $15 per person, bottomless wine, which includes house white red rose sparkling, as well as sangria."

Sounds like the happiest of the hours. The fruity sangria would be enough for me, but if you want more...

Aniece: "We're doing $5 cocktails. $3 beers and $5 snacks."

Sold the cocktails are light and delish.

Aniece: "We do aperitif based cocktails. We've got about seven of them on the menu, and all of them are available at $5 per cocktail."

Like this one their take on a mojito.

Aniece - "Muddled lime, mint, thai basil syrup and we serve that with beer, as opposed to rum. It's really refreshing, its great under the hot sun."

As for the $5 snacks, there's a lot of flavor to chose from.

Cesar - "Pig wings, our house made bacon, fish dip with potato chips and then we have couple of other dishes."

The pig wings are covered in buffalo sauce. The bacon is smoked in house, and there's a gigantic buttery biscuit.

Cheers guys. But, maybe try again with a cocktail. Ahhh, much better.

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Brosnan. Pierce Brosnan. OK, so it doesn't have the same ring to it, but you know who we are talking about. The former Bond guy is back at it in his new movie "The November Man." He's grabbing guns and on the run killing bad guys.
