SEVEN DAYS A WEEK
OKRA CHARITY SALOON
Okra Charity Saloon downtown has recently announced a Happy Hour menu available daily from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Drink for a good cause as 100 percent of the bar’s proceeds are donated to a different Houston-based organization or social cause each month. The drink specials include $3 wells and beer, $5 wine and half-price cocktails.
While there’s no specific happy hour deal for food, the normal prices on the bites won't break the bank. For $4, you can get an order of waffle fries and for $9 you can choose from several panini's like the Grand Prize made with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, basil and vinaigrette, or the Poison Girl with arugula, avocado, tomato and Sriracha mayo.
Indoors or outside on the heated patio, stay warm with Kata Robata's Happy Hour deals.
