Really Happy Happy Days (not Hours)

Who doesn’t love a good happy hour? And when that hour happens to last all day…well, that calls for a blog post!

There are a few places around Boulder that offer all-day happy hours, where you can load up on great food and drinks, and when the bill comes, you (and your wallet) will definitely be happy. Here’s a rundown of some of my favorite options, not necessarily in any particular order:
