We told you the days of visiting the same go-to bar weekend after weekend were gone in the Rio Grande Valley. Within the past few years, the boom of mixology, great cocktails and foodies has taken over the RGV. Although our last segment focused on the great priced beers of the Upper Valley, we want you to know that the happy times don’t stop there.

No more excuses of staying home because the Mid- and Lower Rio Grande Valley don’t have good happy hour specials. We’re going to educate you again, this time about the best happy hour specials the Mid- and Lower Valley have to offer.
