No, I’m not talking about the kinds of happy meals that come in a cardboard box. I’m talking about real happy meals – the type that will bring joy (and much-needed vitamins) to the grumbling stomachs of penniless backpackers and other plebeians throughout the city.
This post is dedicated to covering happy hours in restaurants and pubs across Melbourne. I’ll keep updating this page as I come across new specials.
