The Happiest Hour
Happy Hour at the Twilight Exit
Region: Central District.
Happy hours: Mon–Fri 4–8 pm, Sat–Sun noon–8 pm.
Crowd: An entanglement of die-hard regulars, lanky hipsters, and former patrons of Oscar's II (the bar that originally occupied the Twilight's current space).
Romantic decor: Lush brown-carpet-upholstered walls, a ceiling mirror.
Sunday-night enchantments: Affable karaoke DJ Steve, his 5,000-plus song selection, his furiously devoted legion of amateur vocalists.
Blood-curdling "last call" evacuation tactics: The bouncer's occasional revving and waving of a (bladeless) chainsaw.
Happy-hour drink specials: $1.50 PBR, $2.75 micros (such as Dick's Danger Ale or Manny's Pale Ale), $3 imports (Guinness or Stella Artois), and $2.50 well drinks.
