On a gusty, overcast day where cheek-numbing winds can chill you to the bone just crossing the parking lot from your hybrid to the office door, nothin' says Happy Hour like a frosty bottle of beer, coated neck to label in ice-cold, crystalized condensation. Right? ...Yeah, we didn't think so either.
That's why we were psyched to see The Old Monk's new menu of seasonally-appropriate Hot Drinks, rolled out just in time for the annual Dipping of the Temperatures. The Monk's offering steamy standbys like Hot Toddys, Mulled Wine and Irish Coffee, as well as the Knox Chox spiked hot chocolate and some wicked thing called a Nutty Irishman (we'll let you investigate that one for yourself). Now that's something to look forward to after a long, chilly day of putting up with people who make you wanna hit the sauce.
All Hot Drinks are $7 ($6 during Happy Hour). Plus, it's nice and cozy in there, kinda like the Prancing Pony. Ah, how we love the Monk.
