Alright, Calgary, for our happy hour of the week we’d like to remind you about the open secret that is Mug Shotz. Long lauded as the best wing spot in Calgary, these guys also have screaming happy hour deals. And, it just so happens that we’re feeling wings today.

Happy Hour of the Week: Mug Shotz

First off, we had no idea that Mug Shotz has only been around since 2007. We thought it would have started in the 90s or something because it has been a Calgary institution for as long as we can remember. Maybe we’re in the twilight zone.

Anyway, let’s start with the wing deals. On Wednesdays and Fridays, you can get most flavours for a mere $8.75 a pound. As for Thursday and Saturday, 5-pound platters with 3 flavours are $40, so probably best to share among friends.

Happy hour drinks are daily as well. You can grab high balls, draft glasses and domestic beers for under $5. But, we recommend just going for it and getting the jug for $15.50 and sharing that. It’s the best deal, after all.

As for flavours, well, you’re on your own. We like medium parmesan and bbq, but it’s kind of like picking your favourite child… you know you have one, but they’re all so darn lovable that why bother saying it out loud?
