Dallas' Six Best Bars for Day Drinking

The list of excuses is endless: your boss is a jerk and you need some personal space to avoid going all Office Space on him: You've billed too many hours for the quarter and you can't work any more, anyway; it's greater than 72 degrees during a month that normally features ice and snow; your dog died; your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend finally changed the Netflix password and now you've got to pay to stream House of Cards; your hard drive failed and you know for certain you'll never recreate that beautiful paragraph that would have finally gotten you that book deal; you started your taxes and the preliminary results are no good; you got fired; you stubbed your toe; it's your birthday; it's your friend's birthday; oh screw it you just feel like it, OK?

Day drinking is one of those activities that's just as good at dulling the blow of bad news as it is for heightening the celebration of just about anything you want to attach a few beers to. It's also a great way to erase a day, but only if you booze it up at a place that was made for drinking in the afternoon. These bars won't fail you.
