Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Minutes count at happy hour, says Gretchen Kurtz. On a recent visit to Bubu Lowry, she found a server willing to stretch happy-hour timing, and that made her time there much happier. But Gabor responds: 

Why should the hospitality be any different than any other industry? It is not a secret it is exactly the same, we have rules that we have to follow.

If a train time is at 6:30pm and you miss it because of traffic, should the train wait one more minute? They do not care about any traffic jam, accident, etc. If the departure time is 6:30pm, it will leave at 6:30pm... 

Yes...one minute is important..

Where will you be going for happy hour tonight? And how far an you stretch that happy hour?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
