Houston Press: Social Hour in Sugar Land
It’s Friday evening around 6:00 p.m., and I’m at the dimly lit Bar 79 at Perry’s Grille & Steakhouse Lounge in Sugar Land. They recently started doing a “Social Hour” from 4 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday — half price appetizers, mixology drinks and wines on their bar menu. From the crowded lounge and bar, people seem to be loving it.
As is typical of a steakhouse, the bar is dominated by males, and on this night, it looks like the men are ready to unwind after a long week. There’s a group of them sitting at the bar, joking around and watching TV, and all of them are wearing those bowling-type short sleeve shirts. Welcome to suburbia, folks.
