Best Happy Hour
Readers, upstate: McGlynn’s Pub (8 Polly Drummond Shopping Center, Newark, 738-7814; 108 Peoples Plaza, Newark, 834-6661)
Readers, downstate: Fat Tuna (319 Atlantic Ave., Millville, 541-8200)
Critics, upstate: Staffers at Deep Blue Bar and Grill have revived the downtown happy hour scene, especially on Wednesdays, when Wilmington After Work draws the thirstiest customers and lovers of live music. But the Grays award Deep Blue for its “central location with mingling space,” says Harold, as well as the “good appetizers, cocktails and bartenders.” On Thursdays, half-priced oysters are popular, and on Wednesdays, $3 tapas go great with $4 glasses of Wente Riesling. There’s a new tapas menu every week and some sort of entertainment. Bar food includes tuna tartare, steamed Mediterranean mussels, crispy beef wonton and fried oysters. In other words, it’s not your standard happy hour grub. (111 W. 11th St., Wilmington, 777-2040)
