Now that most students have gone home for the summer, things are a little quieter on Mondays, manager Molly Wisniewski said.
Fridays are typically the busiest day of the week for happy hour, she added. So plan accordingly if you’re looking for a quieter atmosphere.
Mad Mex margaritas are legendary, and with a name like Big Azz that’s not surprising. If 22 ounces of fruity goodness is too much (and let’s be honest, it’s a lot), they also have more modest 12- and 16-ounce margaritas.
Pair a chilly margarita with some finger-licking-good wings and the workday will fade from memory.
You can get those wings mild, wild or — if you’re feeling brave — insane.
And while you’re there, you might as well enjoy some dinner: Burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, fajitas, tacos and more are all on the menu. It’s not discounted, but the smell alone is enough to make it worth it. Chips and salsa are a must.
But hey, if all you need is a draft, they’ve got you covered with more than 20 varieties of beer.
So what are you waiting for? Kick back and enjoy the summer sunshine on the patio (but enjoy it responsibly).
