Washington Street restaurant just beats out Sona Thirteen.
It was a close one, but when it comes to Happy Hours, Patch readers picked The Famished Frog as the happiest. But, it was certainly not a runaway victory. Sona Thirteen, on South Street, ran neck-and-neck with The Frog until the very end. Of course, though, when it comes to Happy Hour specials, it's the consumer that's the real winner. Congrats to The Famished Frog! Did our readers get it right? Did they get it wrong? Let us know in the comments.

An $11 "top shelf" cocktail does not impress.
I recently stopped into Sona Thirteen for a cocktail. This mostly unadorned space has had many different owners and names over the years, most thankfully lost to history. The interior hasn’t changed much either in all this time. Sona’s sign out front heralds an Irish provenance, yet other than Fish and Chips on the menu, I failed to see any evidence of that history. Upon entering the room, there is a long bar on the left side of the cavernous space. Toward the rear, on the right of the room there is another bar. At the very back to the left of the room appears to be some kind of tiki bar boasting bamboo adornments. The floors are wood and the walls are brick, making the room extremely loud. Let me preface with the statement, there is …
