So, it's Friday afternoon.  You hope to sneak out of work early, to beat the rush on the way home. But, then a friend texts ya, "...drinks"?  You ignore the text, but then a half hour later you get "?"  You text back,"Okay."

It starts with one drink and then the 'okay, just one more'. The sun begins to set, and your friends (now more folks) are having a bit of a night out. Then, it's happy hour, and you are thinking to yourself - what the hey?

I give you five Buffalo bars where this frequently happens.  What starts out as one drink with friends, after work, turns into a night-time party.

So, what's missing from the list?

    Right on the water on a sunny Friday afternoon, you can expect to stop by for some live music at 8:00 PM, end up dancing, drinking and doing a lot of gabbing well into the night.

    Eddie Brady's

    Not just for St. Patty's, this is a fun Irish bar with wood and brick walls, and that lovely pressed-tin ceiling.
