Vickery Park Offers Happy Hour Before Game, "Antlers" Shot Special During

Each week City of Ate will give you the lowdown on a local happy hour in Quittin' Time, with the details on why you should or shouldn't take up the featured bar or restaurant on its drink specials.

Where: VIckery Park, 2810 N. Henderson Ave., 214-827-1432

When: 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday

What: $1 off wells, domestics and drafts. Also, starting at 7 p.m. Friday during Game One of the Rangers-vs.-Yankees American League Championship Series, the bar will offer $2.50 Jägermeister shots every time a Rangers player earns the antlers and $1 off Jäger shots throughout the game. Additionally, the bar offers half-priced food (with the exception of the rib-eye) on Tuesdays.

Why: Because Vickery Park is a great game-watching bar with plenty of screens, yet also manages to maintain the kind of unpretentious, homey, living-room comfy atmosphere that makes even non-sports fans feel welcome, especially on the couches in the lounge area.

Even though we think Jäger tastes like Ny-Quil and wouldn't drink it if it were free, we've got to admit the antler promotion is a great idea. The bottle, if you can look at it without getting queasy, does feature a prominently antlered buck. But we'll just have to content ourselves with pre-game drinking of dollar-off wells and drafts.

Unless, that is, we can convince the bartender to offer the same game-time special for Cazadores tequila. It is, after all, "The one with the deer on it."
