The old adage that April showers bring May flowers isn’t ringing true this year with all the rain we’ve gotten from El Niño — indeed, Austin’s latest forecast is that we’re going to keep getting rain throughout today and at additional times for the rest of this month.
But the W Austin doesn’t want us to be singing the rainy day blues anymore.
The downtown hotel has instituted a new happy hour based around the weather. Anytime it’s raining (and at a decent hour for drinking), guests of the W Austin’s Living Room Lounge will get half-priced specialty cocktails.
That’s not a bad deal at all. Normally, the W Austin’s happy hour, which the hotel calls “Primetime,” runs from 7 to 9 p.m. each weeknight with half-off deals on cocktails and $5 to $9 bar bites like goat cheese artichoke dip and loaded fries. With the May showers special, guests can enjoy happy hour whenever it’s raining, period. The offer is valid through the end of this very wet month.
So when it rains, let them pour.
