In Mount Vernon , a neighborhood stacked with trendy bars, hot nightspots and intriguing ethnic restaurants, Tavern on the Hill stands out - because it's not any of those things. Instead, the bar and eatery, which opened in July, is purposefully unpretentious. Menu items like hot dogs and sandwiches are served by friendly, casually dressed waiters. But that doesn't mean the staff - or the food - is sloppy. The service, especially, is top-notch. Scene & Decor Stepping into Tavern on the Hill, glass cases housing desserts greeted us, giving the space the vibe of a carry-out joint.

Every college town needs at least one decent, inexpensive, fun Mexican food spot. In Towson, El Rodeo might be that place - but it seems to wish it was more. The Allegheny Avenue restaurant, which opened in early 2012, hits the right notes when it keeps things simple, fresh and low-key. It's less successful with attempts to elevate cuisine into gourmet territory. And while the staff's laid-back attitude is okay for a casual spot, the service needs fine-tuning. Drinks The margarita and sangria (both $3 during happy hour, which runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily)

Happy hour is still jolly, but the source of the joy is no longer confined to the overflowing, underpriced cocktail. These days the eats, not just the drinks, figure prominently in the merrymaking.I found this out when I made a short return visit to the happy-hour circuit. Years ago I was a regular attendee of any gathering that marked the end of the work day.But then the kids came along, and rather than leaving work to check out the social scene, I found myself going home to check out the latest scream.

What's a mid-summer downpour when you've got people to meet, networking to do? Even a weather-related downtown traffic jam couldn't keep some 45 folks away from Harborview's South Harbor Tavern. They came for "Networking Happy Hour: The Sequel" -- a production of Women in Film and Video of Maryland, a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to promoting women in the film, video and related industries. Those who braved the soggy streets were rewarded with good food, good company and good chances of meeting people in Maryland's film and video industry.

Pour me somethin' tall and strong Make it a hurricane before I go insane It's only half-past 12 but I don't care It's 5 o'clock somewhere.- "It's Five O'Clock Some- where," words by Jim "Moose" Brown, Don Rollins In these devil-may-care lyrics of their No. 1 country-music hit, Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett suggest that even if it's just past noon where they are, it must be happy hour somewhere in the world. Maybe it's cock-eyed optimism, but can that claim really be true? Or have the emperor of Margaritaville and his sidekick been sucking too many tequila-soaked limes?

In spite of a few jokes about walkers and such that you had to expect, there was a good discussion on a post on my blog Dining@Large (baltimoresun.com/diningatlarge) about what 35-and-overs want in a happy hour. One of the main things, after meeting other 35-and-overs, was the chance to talk without being drowned out by loud music or TVs. The following is my list of places, in alphabetical order, with a little bit of information to let you know what's available there. (Specials are offered weeknights only, unless otherwise noted.

Nothing says old fashioned and simple quite like the Hot Toddy. Whether you're using it to treat your flu or cold symptoms (not doctor recommended, but probably by your grandmother) or preparing to hit the hay, it's the perfect evening drink. Thames Street Oyster House makes theirs with a light flavor and a local twist. Manager Candace Beattie explains: "We try to keep all of our drinks light and locally sourced whenever possible, even our happy hour is local. " To wit, the Thames Street Toddy is composed of Maryland's crown jewel of rye whiskey Pikesville Rye, mint, lemon and sweet orange tea - and it's the pinnacle of relaxing.

It's only 2 years old, but Tatu just got its first face-lift. The pan-Asian restaurant in Power Plant Live, which opened in September 2010, reopened in October after a renovation and menu revamp. The new space is dimly lit, with a mix of high and low tables taking the place of traditional dining tables and chairs. Loud music and glamorous decor send the not-so-subtle message that Tatu aspires to be a nightclub - you won't see a giant sculpture of a topless mermaid or mirrored tables at your neighborhood sushi joint.
