It's Prime Time!

Posted By on Mon, Sep 21, 2009 at 1:14 PM

There are lots of ways to measure your own sense of achievement. On a monthly basis, I turn to the class notes section of my alumni magazine and read of my classmates' accomplishments in government, medicine, science, athletics, finance etc. I have yet to send them in any notification of my newly-recognized abilities to eat, type and use a thesaurus.

However one thing that slammed home the message of my inadequacy was the day that The Palm Restaurant opened downtown almost a decade ago, one of my high school classmates already had his caricature painted on the wall. Not that I begrudged him at all. On the contrary, he's a great guy and I'm sure he deserved it by whatever criteria is used by the powers that be that decide these things.*

Unfortunately, his picture is right on the way to the damned restroom, so there's hardly any way to avoid it. Well, now there's a way for me to head down to The Palm and act like I belong.

That's right, discount happy hour bar food!

The Palm is introducing their new bar concept, Palm Bar, featuring a new bar menu including Kobe Beef Sliders, Filet Mignon Capri Sandwiches, Mini Broiled Crab Cakes, "Point Judith" Calamari Fritti and more. Normally these small plates are priced somewhere in the $10-12 range.

But during The Palm's all-new happy hour, Prime Time, Monday through Friday from 5pm to 7pm then again after 9pm, Palm Bar offers a variety of their signature Prime Bites at wallet-friendly prices of just $3.50 a plate. Guests can also enjoy a raw bar, including Oysters on the Half Shell for $1 a piece and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail for $2 a piece during Prime Time.

At those prices for food from The Palm's kitchen it's a tough deal to beat. Unless you go Wednesday September 23 from 5:30 until 7:00 pm when these new plates will be offered at the low, low price of...free. To celebrate the kick-off of their new bar menu concept, The Palm is inviting special guests to try out these dishes on the house. How do you qualify as a special guest, you ask?

Just tell them you know me.

*His wife is pretty rockin' as well.
