We’re all feeling the pinch of ‘Cozzie Livs.’ From thinning our subscriptions, tightening our daily oat cap latte consumption, and sticking to canned tuna for dinner, there’s not much room for anything fun or social, for that matter. We’re all painfully aware that cocktails are $20 at least if not more. And beer, well, that’s rising too.
Luckily, bars are noticing the pinch, and doing god’s work, offering happy hours to keep us calm and liquored-up.
