Mark Peel’s cocktail-and-bar eats stunner Tar Pit has been screaming out for a happy hour since opening five months back. Finally one arrives, effective immediately we’re told by the Hollywood supper club, though you’ll need to wait for the 5:00 P.M. opening today. The set-up for these new “Guilded Hours” is simple: three specialty house cocktails plus one weekly-changing libation will be available for only six dollars, roughly 50% off some of the only drinks worth double-digit prices in this town. A house red and white are offered for the same price, while three of our favorite Pit small plates are cut to five bucks, with fries at only $2.50. The cheaper eats and high octane discount drinks kick off every day from 5:00 to 6:30 P.M. and a full menu of the available drinks and snacks is below.
