Gary: Hey, over here. I’m glad you could make it. This place has a great happy hour. Let me get the waitress, Brenda, so we can order our drinks.
Shanise: Hi, Gary. You sound like a regular. Do you come here a lot?
Gary: Yeah, I like stopping by on my way home now and then to wind down.
Shanise: Is there another barstool?
Gary: Oh, sorry. Let me get another one for you. Have a seat. What will you have?
Shanise: I’ll have a scotch, straight up. I usually don’t drink very much. Alcohol sometimes doesn’t agree with me. I’ve had a tough day, though, and I need to loosen up.
Gary: Okay, one scotch coming up. Here comes the waitress. Okay, that’s one scotch for Shanise and a draft beer for me. On second thought, bring a pitcher of the draft beer, would you? Thanks, Brenda.
Shanise: I’m starving. The sign outside says that they have all-you-can-eat appetizers during happy hour. Is that right?
Gary: Right you are, and they have specials on everything on their menu.
Shanise: I don’t usually go to happy hours, but I like this place. I’m glad you invited me to come.
Gary: Would I steer you wrong? Now let’s get some grub.
