Yankee Doodles @ 3rd Street Promenade

First.  Yankee Doodles?  Really? 

Moving past the silly name, in all my years of hanging out at the Promenade, I've never once thought to venture into what I assumed was a generic sports bar.  Oh boy was I wrong.  This place is amazing!  Yes it does still smell a little like a frat house, but with 20+ pool tables, hot shot, air hockey, and tons of flat screens, it certainly makes up for it's faults.

And then there's the happy hour.

Monday ~ Friday || 3PM - 7PM
Sunday ~ Thursday || 10PM - 2AM
Tuesdays || 3PM - Close

1/2 Price Billiards
1/2 Priced Single Well Drinks
1/2 Priced Pints
+ a Happy Hour Tapas Menu

You know what?  I haven't even gotten to the best part.  I found a coupon online, Free Sliders with any order of $10 or more.  These sliders were unreal!  A juicy burger with caramelized onions, pickles and cheese on top of a lightly grilled hawaiian sweet bread 4-pack.  Even for $10, they'd be worth it. 

So while enjoying a lovely Summer Friday, K, Mystery friend & I nommed on some mouthwatering sliders & got happily sloshed on $3 beers... for a grand total of $21!  Best Deal in Santa Monica.  Hands Down.
