Melange's New Happy Hour Menu - Starting March 19

I have a love hate relationship with Melange. I love $5 martini night (perhaps a bit too much), which takes place every Thursday and features great live entertainment, but it makes me sad that their dinner menu has so few options for vegetarians. I think I take it more personally with Melange since the description on their menu boasts "vegetarian dishes" but fails to mention that most of them are only available at lunch. Not dinner, when I could wash my meal down with a martini.

But enough about that. The folks at Melange are adding yet another menu (bringing the grand total to 10 on the website) for happy hour. Starting March 19, they're going to be holding a Progressive Happy Hour with $4 items at 4:00 pm, $5 items at 5:00, and so on. I appreciate a good deal as much as if not more so than the next person, but I almost feel like they're trying too hard. They have descriptions to explain the pricing hour by hour. I don't know about you, but if I'm out for happy hour, the last thing I want to think about is what time it is and based on that time, figure out how much a specific appetizer will cost. This almost sounds like a game to mess with the drunken happy hour revelers. But I admit, I'd be willing to try a $4 bocconcini at 4:00 pm. I just wouldn't want it at 5:00 pm or 6:00 pm when it's paired with other meaty versions.

P.S. Melange's $50 gift certificates will be on sale this Friday for only $25 through the Majic 105.7 Dining Deals program.
