Like John Lee Hooker sang, they call it Stormy Monday, but Tuesday is just as bad. Your workweek started out with promise Cuban coffee and pastelitos in the morning, but somewhere in the sludge and drudgery of the afternoon, the weight of the world came to rest squarely on your shoulders. And this is just the beginning of the workweek?¡Ay caramba! What you need is a little after-work R&R. We have just the place for you: Prime Blue Grille. Tucked away in a fancy building overlooking Biscayne Bay, this elegant yet inviting steak house offers a view of the yachting lifestyle you toil in the hopes of someday affording. The restaurants workweek happy hour kicks off at 5 p.m., making the balcony by the bar an ideal spot to sip some four-dollar draft beers or eight-dollar Grey Goose martinis and nosh on complimentary appetizers.
Monday is a great day to enjoy an after-work aperitif at Prime Blue, but hey, Fridays throughout the month of January sound pretty sweet too. Chivas Regal is offering a happy-hour promotion that begins around 6 p.m. Its simple: Show up, order some drinks at the bar, ask your bartender whats the dealio, and you can sample some Chivas 18 for free. Slow down and have some dinner before you bolt, champ nobody wants a drunk with an empty stomach trying to navigate his way home after a hard day at work.
