I went to Virago when it first opened with some coworkers a few years ago and had 3 martinis and some sashimi and then nearly choked on my ahi when I saw the bill came to like $50.

I hadn’t been back since then, assuming as a trendy new hotspot, they were equating “Hip” with “Fucking Expensive”.

I stopped there last night and had three martinis during happy-hour and it came to $12. They were decent martinis, too, despite the guy asking me what kind of vodka I wanted in my Martini.

It’s not every day you go to a bar that includes very generously portioned martinis in their happy hour. They’re vindicated, for now ..
