Daffy Hour Springs Up at Nikolai’s Roof and Ray’s in the City
Daffodils are beaming, proclaiming springtime is near! More than 100,000 daffodils are blooming throughout downtown Atlanta, according to Central Atlanta Progress. During March, Daffy Hour promotions at Atlanta restaurants salute this flower’s sunny countenance. What about you? Are you an early or late bloomer, preferring to seek daffodils before Daffy Hour or after enjoying a nip or nosh? Nikolai’s Roof, on the 30th floor of the Hilton Atlanta, offers Daffy Hour specials Tuesdays through Saturdays: Moscow Mules for $10 each and house-made meatballs for two served with grain mustard tomato sauce and caperberries for $12. The flora might not be obvious from this perch, but a spectacular skyline view awaits. Going with the daffodil yellow theme, Ray’s in the City sows Frosty Lemon martinis and Lemon Liqueur Sunrise cocktails, $8 each for Daffy Hours on weekdays from 4-7 p.m. Ray’s also features select half-priced appetizers, $6 glasses of house wines, $8 Tito’s cocktails and $8 Savannah bourbon weekdays from 3-6 p.m. By the way, if you capture some gorgeous photos while you’re out daffodil-ing around, be sure to share them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #DowntownDaffodils.
