CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- “Happy Hour!” Those are two of my favorite words, especially after a long workday and days filled with meetings after meetings.
When you finally escape, aka “clock out for the day,” all you long for is a cold beverage (or two) and some great food… on the cheap!
Most restaurants and bars offer discounted food and drink specials, which includes early in the day and late at night. Some places even offer specials on the weekend!
If you’re like me, I hate paying full price. So, I did a little research and found some amazing deals in Chandler.
So, grab your friends and check out the happy hours at these locally owned restaurants and bars!
