We celebrate Happy Hour every day we’re open (Monday through Sunday, excluding Tuesday) at Salt & Barrel. This coming November 12th, however, gives us even more reason since that’s when we commemorate National Happy Hour Day.
Where does Happy Hour originate?
When the sailors aboard the USS Arkansas (circa 1913) wanted a distraction during long tours at sea, the ship’s administration instituted an early version of Happy Hour. This included fun activities like dancing, boxing matches, and drinking.
Since the 18th Amendment (in 1917) banned the sale and consumption of alcohol, small businesses would sneak around Prohibition by offering “cocktail hours” that had to be kept secretive. The famous speak-easies did this for years until Prohibition finally ended, and the more modern Happy Hour replaced the once clandestine practice.
We suspect the idea for National Happy Hour day was somebody’s random Internet idea, but we hardly need an excuse to celebrate at Salt & Barrel.
