Happiest Hour: where to watch the game and what to eat this fall

I partnered with Harwood District and Happiest Hour to bring you this blog post. All opinions are my own. Photography provided by Maribel Morales Photography.

The foodie adventures continue and this time, I found myself at Happiest Hour in the Harwood District. If you haven’t been to Happiest Hour, it’s a HUGE space that includes a beer garden, inside bar and dining area, and a pretty awesome rooftop with a view. The space is 12,000 sq ft, and with football season here and fall right around the corner, it’s a great place to visit. You’ll be able to find all kinds of specials. Happiest Hour also offers 50 different beers to choose from, wines on tap, and menu of items all made in-house.

Today, I’m sharing some of the epic happitizers and specials you can find at Happiest Hour this fall. If you’re looking for a place to watch the game or hang out with a big group of friends over food and drinks, this is where you want to be. You can also check out their menu here. Get ready to drool:

Happy Hour with Team Happytizers

This menu is definitely meant for sharing. Unless you’re just greedy. Ha. You can find lots of game day favorites on their shareable menu including nachos, pickles, burgers, and even a huge dessert called Everything but the Sink.

XL Loaded Cheese Fries – I LOVED that this came out in a giant Cow Bowl and it was HEAVY. I usually don’t share my fries… but going to have call in the squad to help with this bad boy.

Ferris Wheel Wings – I thought the ferris wheel was SO friggin cute. You can choose between 4 flavors: hot, BBQ, lemon pepper, and Jamaican jerk. I’d there this could keep 6-8 folks easily and I like that you can choose multiple flavors and be able to order for the whole table.

They also serve what Happiest Hour calls Team Drinks as well. I know them as fish bowls, but essentially it’s a batch cocktail served in a bowl large enough for multiple people. They brought out the Hail Mary for me this time and that thing looked like one hell of a good time in a bowl.

Debuting Smoked Saturdays at Happiest Hour

If you visit Happiest Hour, you’ll notice they have a smoker and are now featuring a menu just on Saturdays during football season featuring different bbq dishes. Everything is made in house and the chef brought out some epic plates for me to sample.

Dirty Carlos is a footlong all beef hotdog topped with real Texas chili (no beans, no meat). What a monster. I really like the chili he made for the hot dog.

Big Bird which is a smoked turkey sandwich with bbq in a brioche bun. At this point, I was starting to feel the itis.

The Happiest Tater speaks to my soul! This is one of my all-time guilty pleasures. A big ass loaded baked potato with chopped brisket and BBQ sauce. You can also get pulled pork instead of brisket too. This was the first thing I ate after this epic photoshoot. Of all 20 to-go boxes, I annihilated this one after the shoot.

Newest to the Happiest Hour menu this month is the Monte Cristo.

I had a few bites after taking this shot and holy jeebus. A Monte Cristo is a ham and cheese sandwich that is dipped in egg and fried. AND It’s cooked in freakin pancake batter!!! WUT?!

You’re Invited: Throwback Thirty

Harwood District celebrates it’s 30th anniversary and they’re throwing a party at Happiest Hour this Thursday, Sept 13th from 6pm to 12pm. The party features a throwback 80s theme and you’re invited to show up in costumes. They’ll have neon lights, games, cocktails, and live music from The Spazmatics at 7pm. It’s FREE for the public and a great reason to check out Happiest Hour.

Hope you enjoyed following along on my foodie adventure in Harwood District. This shoot was so much fun and I had a blast tasting all the menu items and getting to share them with you. Thank you to Happiest Hour for having me and definitely for letting me take some of these goodies home. Have to say, my brothers were so PUMPED! I’ll be sharing more from my collaboration with them in the upcoming months. Stay tuned!
