As the saying goes, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” but what about a drink a day? Did you know that a drink or two a day may also play a role in keeping the doctor away? Recent studies show that having a drink after a long day at the office may contribute to having a healthier heart. Of course, overdoing it can have the opposite effect, causing health problems such as a risk of heart disease, cancer and depression. When consumed in moderation, alcohol can help decrease ones risk of heart attack by up to 25%.
So how about just a drink? After a long day of stress, Willie’s is the best place to go in Columbia, MO. Here’s a few ideas on how to mix it up each night you stop by for a little pick me up. Short on cash? We’ve got the low down on daily specials that won’t break your bank.
As the day before Monday, Sunday carries an ominous feeling about the long week that lies ahead. Grab some friends and watch the big games with an ice cold glass of beer. It’ll be light, relaxing and just what you need before you begin your week. Sundays are $4.50 pitchers of Coors Light & Killians.
Some people call Monday the weekend’s evil stepchild. The perfect drink to cure your case of the Mondays is a margarita. This festive, chilled drink is sure to lighten your mood and liven up your expectations for the remainder of the week. Mondays are $4 margaritas all day.
The end of Tuesday marks the cusp of the beginning of the middle of the week. Sounds confusing, doesn’t it? Make it simple and grab a beer. Tuesday’s are $1 domestic bottles (Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Select, Busch, Busch Light, Miller Light, Coors Light)
Wednesday is a day to celebrate. You’re more than halfway through the week, just two more days and then it’s the weekend. Mix up your usual wine Wednesday with a double well. Wednesday’s are $4 double wells.
Thursday nights are the best nights to go out in college, why not make them the best nights to go out, period? You’re just a day away and $2 short of celebrating the weekend a night early. Find that $2 and have a beer. Thursdays are $2 any beer (except Guiness & Wood Chuck)
You made it! The weekend is finally here. Those five consecutive days of maximum work and minimum play merit some serious chill time. With your drink of choice, bask in the relief of the well-deserved weekend. Fridays are $4 double wells and $2 domestic bottles.
Saturday is the ideal day for a drink. It’s the prime of the weekend, and you deserve a little something special. Shoot for a shot. The possibilities are endless just like the opportunities for you to have a good night.
If you’re not in the mood to go out with friends for the night, stop by Willie’s happy hour. Monday-Friday 4-7pm enjoy $1 off all drafts and domestic bottles. After all, it’s doctor’s orders.
