Happy Birthday to us!
I can't believe it, but Nov. 2 marks one year since this blog started. The blog has morphed along the way, but one thing never changes: The Foodie Report is a delicious stew of various opinions, personalities and, well, tastes.
To celebrate, the Foodie Report crew is hosting a happy hour at Pacific Moon Friday, Nov. 2 from 5-9 p.m. Mention "The Foodie Report" that evening and you'll get 20% off all appetizers. There will also be complimentary items from their new dim sum menu!
Here are the happy hour specials:
All draft beers $1.50 off regular price (so domestic drafts are $2)
Guinness is $3
All bottled beer $1.50 off regular price
All of the signature drink martinis are only $5.00 (I'll be having the green teani!)
Food (of course)
The $1 munchie menu consists of:
Mini veggie springroll (2 per order)
BBQ Pork Mini Sandwich (kind of like a Chinese slider, they tell me)
Steamed Pork Bun
Steamed Chicken Bun
Hong Kong Roll
So, we hope to see you there next week! Just picture it... We can obsess about food in person!
