Two New Happy Hours to Kick Off the Weekend

Raspberry Lychee Martini at Musaafer

FINISH THE WEEK strong and hit the hopping new happy hours at two glam Galleria-area restaurants.


Musaafer — the luxe, 10,000-square-foot Indian spot in the mall's still-new "jewel box" wing, from restaurateurs Mithu and Shammi Malik — has rolled out a new specialty menu, available on weekdays from 5pm-6:30pm. Find deals on signature cocktails (Raspberry Lychee martini, anyone?) and bottles of wine, and take a culinary journey through India's 29 states via happy-hour plates like coriander prawns and chana palak sliders.

Down the street at La Table, the two-level French affair that reopened just before the holidays, score discounted drinks from 5pm-7pm Tuesdays through Thursdays — or hold out for reverse happy hour on Friday and Saturdays from 8pm-11pm. Both timeframes boast $10 G&Ts, Provence Margaritas (with lavender syrup and crème de violette) and chocolate martinis; select beers are $4 and glasses of wine are $10.

We'll drink to that!

ARTS PATRONS WILL know that tonight is the Ballet Ball, a glamorous fundraiser for the Houston Ballet, this year to be thrown virtually.
