You heard right! All day Happy Hour on Sundays at Lil Rizzo’s is back. Yes, you can still enjoy Happy Hour during the week after work, but now you can enjoy those same awesome deals all day on Sundays. What better way to end a great weekend than at the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks? Before we take a look at the awesome deals available during all day Happy Hour, let's take a look at some Happy Hour fun facts and how it got us here.
Happy Hour Fun Facts
- The term Happy Hour first originated in the 1920s. It referred to the time when sailors in the Navy were away from their shifts. Their Happy Hour was a little different than the Happy Hour we experience today. Back then, it consisted of boxing or wrestling and didn't revolve around adult beverages as much.
- Happy Hour became popular during prohibition. When you tell someone they can’t have something, they usually end up wanting it more. Having cocktails before dinner wasn’t really a “thing” until prohibition came along.
- Happy Hour is more about money than spending time with others. American Express and Technomic conducted a study that showed the main reason Americans go to Happy Hour is for the discounted prices, not to hang out with friends. Hey, we don’t blame you!
