Mama Chuy opens patio, starts awesome 8 hour long 50% off drinks happy hour during the week

Mama Chuy, the great traditional Mexican taqueria at 2620 Georgia Ave NW, now has their patio open and is hosting brunch and happy hour -- 50% off all drinks from 11am-7pm!

If you haven't been, check it out -- it's run by a brother and sister with delicious small plates and entrees based on their Guadalajaran grandma's recipes. I've written about them before -- the tacos, sopes (flat tacos with a crispy flat shell) and small plates are all great. I'm a big fan of the al pastor, carne asada and espectially the milanesa tacos and sopes (breaded beef,) and their vegetarian options, like mushroom tacos, are good enough for carnivores. They have entrees too, though I haven't tried them yet -- the tacos are too good. The margaritas are sweet and tasty as well, and a 4-star rating from 67 reviews on Yelp can't be wrong!

I feel like this patio could be a great pre- or post-pool spot, once Banneker Pool is open just down the street. Plus they're open at lunchtime for the crowd who are around the area then.

Here's what they had to say on Twitter:
We opened our patio area and added 20-25 additional seats overall. We have seating on the patio, on the stoop, and an upstairs dining area. We have Happy Days Mon-Fri. 11am-7pm. All drinks are 50 % off during this time. Our hours are Mon-Thurs 11am-10pm. Fri-Sat 11am-11pm with our kitchen closing 30 min prior.
