Happy Hour of the Week: Mellow Mushroom

November 2009
The Mellow Mushroom, located in the Streets at SouthGlenn, is anything but mellow, with more than 10 flat-screens broadcasting sporting events and an open kitchen full of bustling cooks tossing pizza dough into the air. Happy hour at Mellow Mushroom is an all-day affair, with flavors of Smirnoff, Three Olives, Bacardi, and Crown Royal drinks under $5; $2.99 pints of Deschutes, Dos Equis, and Full Sail; $2.99 house wine; $2.50 tallboys of PBR; $2.80 Coors and Miller Lite; and $2.50 pints/$8 pitchers of Shiner Black and Bock. The action in this pizza joint may conflict with its laid-back name, but the milieu maintains a psychedelic flow, complete with trippy blue and red murals on the walls. And outside, patrons stay warm on a snug patio thanks to a fireplace and heat lamps---and another TV ensures that nobody misses the big game. The late-night happy hour runs Monday-Thursday and Sunday from 10 p.m.-close with $2 Miller Lite bottles and $3 well drinks. Tuesday is Service Industry Night starting at 6 p.m., with $4.50 Jager Bombs, $3 margaritas, $3 Three Olive flavors, and $2 Miller Lite bottles. Thursday is Ladies Night, with $1 house wines and $4.50 Jager Bombs. Along with the nightly drink specials, the eatery has $2.50 pizza-by-the-slice deals every night from 10:30 p.m.-close. On the 16th St. Mall? You won't have to wait too long to frequent the Mellow Mushroom, which is aiming to open its second Colorado location downtown early next summer. 2154 E.
