Best place to go for drinks on a Monday evening?
After working a full shift on my feet at the hospital, and then running just over 5 k I was sitting at home in my pajamas soaking my poor feet when a girlfriend texted me to go out for some drinks. Now given the state I was in, I normally would have just ignored the text, and went to bed. But! When a good friend moves away they need a proper goodbye, not to mention I’ll make any excuse to dress up with this little fashionista.
Wearing a simple white loose fitting tee, and a black belted skirt, I meet up with my good friend who’s fashion sense will give anyone a run for their money. Wearing a hot pink pencil skirt, a Paris inspired graphic tee and her signature sky high heels at Mexi’s we are dressed to kill. We both order the mango margarita and enjoy a leisurely chat amongst many other Haligonians who are enjoying their mid-week beverages.
After we froze ourselves to death on the patio with our blended drinks we retreated to Onyx.I’d never been to Onyx, and I have to say I was very impressed. Inside is very swanky, and it does not feel like Spring Garden Road Halifax; I felt like I took a trip to NYC baby (oh wait that’s next week).
On Mondays Onyx features their freshly mixed mojito’s for just 7 dollars. Prepared with fresh fruit and mint these drinks we’re great after a long day on my feet. My apologies on the photo above; it really doesn’t give the drink justice. With its fresh coconut, or slices of cucumber, these drinks are a sip of eloquence combined with sophistication.
There are several places on Spring Garden that offer discounted drinks on Mondays, Fireside does Martini Monday, and Mexi’s does Margarita Monday as well.
Fireside is fun with its comfortable seating, and yummy appetizer’s like the baked goat cheese that comes under a tepee of bread sticks.
Mexi’s has the added bonus of the out door patio which is nice to sit out and eat some nachos and have some blended drinks. Bring a sweater though because with all those drinks you’ll be frozen, and retreating indoors.
Which place you choose depends on what you are looking for: Rum, Tequila or Vodka; which ever one you choose these places can save you a couple dollars on your night out with your girlfriends.
