Best Happy Hour Spot

When you’re looking to relax after a long workday, hit up one of these happy hours! Lassoing its way into first is Cowboy Jack’s Saloon (1432 Front Porch Place, Altoona), where you can enjoy half off select apps and drink specials galore during happy hour. Swinging into second is The Joynt (322 Water St., Eau Claire); if you thought the prices there couldn’t get any better, think again! Rounding out the category is The Fire House (202 Gibson St., Eau Claire), where you can toast dollar-off taps from 4-7pm. –Natalie Derks
