I think in most countries resturants offer food but not drinks at lower prices between 4:00 to 7:00 PM . and people enjoying for happy hour, In my point of view the reason why offering the food in cheaper prices in the evning its all leftover food or residual food thats why its prices is cheap,


There is an experession which says, ’’ nothing is more expenssive than something free ‘


Its my personal idea, I respect to others views and comments on happy hour, I dont know what people assume .
