Local bar owner weighs in on Happy Hour drink specials returning to Illinois

Posted by wlpo on July 17, 2015

The decision to bring back happy hour drink specials to Illinois was cause for celebration for many bar owners across the state, including ones in the Illinois Valley.

Jackie Mente, owner of MJ’s Pub and Grill in Oglesby, says the new law could help draw in crowds when bars typically aren’t very busy. Mente notes the new law does come with a few provisions, such as not allowing two-for-one specials and limiting specials to 15 hours per week.

Still, she thinks the law can only help bars like hers in the Illinois Valley drive up business.
