Last week, Winny and I celebrated my first happy hour of the quarter! Now, we could’ve gone to the Chieftain. We could have hit up Bimbos for a glass of sangria and a delicious snack sized burrito, but Winny and I are classy ladies!
We went to the new steakhouse on 12th called Manhattan Drugs during happy hour and ordered two orders of Macaroni and Cheese at $3 each. Not bad, right? She’s a working girl and I’m still a poor college student so really, not much has changed.
Macaroni and cheese is a meal that many of my friends grew up on as children, but I didn’t even have my first bowl until high school when I bought my very first box of Easy Mac. I’m thrilled to let you all know that I have since graduated onto Kraft, but while all of you have had the luxury of consuming it as kids – this is a meal that still possesses that “WOW!” factor for me.
I kid you not, my co-workers and I actually had a 30-minute conversation on mac and cheese just a couple weeks ago and how even though we love the simplicity of the meal, we’ll still shovel out the bills for a fancier version at a nice restaurant. Manhattan Drug’s was exactly what Winny and I were both looking for in a happy hour meal and didn’t break our wallets either.
All food things aside, the interior of the restaurant is gorgeous. It’s hard to believe that the last time I was in there, it was just a toy store. The restaurant has given the space a complete transformation packed with booth style seats and lounge furniture.
