Where Is the Happiest Happy Hour?

Patch wants to know which watering hole offers the best late day gathering.

As the weather warms up and the days grow longer, the time to enjoy the seasons has come.

And for many, that means taking in some late afternoon spirits and toasting to the end of a long work day. 

So, Patch wants to know which local bar has the best happy hour. We've combined Washington Township, Chester and Mendham establishments.

Here are your choices:

Old Mill Tavern

(If we're leaving one off the list, please let us know in the comments section)

The winner will be selected on a point system based on poll votes and directory ratings. If there is a tie, a winner will be determined by the amount of positive comments posted on this article and positive reviews received on its directory listing. For full contest rules, click on the PDF attached to this article.

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments and reviews. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

I perused through the past few weeks of headlines from the Long Valley Patch, and this is what I found; 5/15 - Cops: Driver was Drunk When Vehicle Crashed 5/11 - Cops: Woman Drove Drunk recklessly 5/7 - Cops: Drunk Driver Was Speeding 5/5 - Cops: Drunk Driver Was Leaving Lot the Wrong Way 5/2 - Cops: Drunk Man Assaulted Two Officers 4/30 - Cops: Drunk Driver Grew Pot, Had Shotgun 4/23 - Cops; Stanhope Man Drove Drunk on Rt. 46 4/20 - Cops: Driver Was Drunk, Asleep at the Wheel This may happen in every town, but this seems like a lot of incidences for a small, rural community such as ours. And these are only the people who were caught…. how many more people were DUI that we don’t even know about??? Oh well.... bottom’s up!

well you are going to have a lot of local incidents in a local newspaper. Look at the dailyrecord at the police blotter and look at the number of alcohol related offenses all of the county. Also our police department patrols an extremely large area (almost 45sq.miles bordering 3 counties and numerous different towns) with a lot of commuters. Are we really a "small, rural community" anymore? Sounds like you would support prohibition too!

There’s nothing wrong with a responsibly consumed aperitif, or two.

This is actually a really, really interesting point. This topic was chosen for us on a corporate level, but as a non-drinker, I never considered the happy hour concept because I never participated. But much like after an improv show, I will partake in half price appetizers...does going to happy hour for cheaper drinks mean you will ingest more? And you do have to get home after. This is fascinating and I want to ruminate on it more. Maybe see if there is a poll or something hiding in there. I also don't think you can say "afternoon spirits" without "imbibe" being in the same sentence...
