As the weather warms, I'd rather gather for an outdoor happy hour then prepare for a long night in a dark bar. So, last friday when happy hour crept upon the last work day of the week, I met Kelly and Chalmers at Tria. Slightly removed from the square, the food is delicious, somewhat unexpected, convincingly healthy, and perfectly priced. The wine is, of course, a little pricer (chards starting at $7/glass), but well worth it. If I may, I recommend the fig starter plate and the asparagus salad. Also, of note, they have an excellent beer list for a more hearty dish or the man in your life.
If you can't break away from your cubicle in time for happy hour, try a wine class or "sunday school (wine at 50% off the regular price)." View your options at Tria-Events.
