Last night after work, I enjoyed happy hour with a coworker. We went to Cafe Metropol in the Financial District, and it was a great spot!
Cafe Metropol has happy hour specials from 3-7pm...wine for $5.50, whiskey sours for $5, pomtinis for $5 + many more options!
We both ended up trying a cherry mojito, and it was glorious!
The cherry flavor wasn't too overwhelming - just perfect! Fairly strong too, which is always a nice surprise for happy hour specials. Am I right?!
We also enjoyed their food specials and got an order of the shrimp + calamari, which included mango, avocado and tomatoes...served with some toast. You guys. I don't really "do" seafood. I mean, I try! And I'm learning to like salmon...but I still get nervous around seafood. Hello, I grew up in rural Nebraska.
Anyway! The shrimp and calamari were pretty darn delicious. Yay for maturing tastes!
