Happy 2018! I already feel lucky being that New Year’s Day falls on a Monday. On Mondays Biergarten, 309 Via De Palmas #90, Boca Raton, FL 33432, has $1 bratwursts with a purchase of a drink during happy hour 4-7pm. . I had a $4 pint of cold German beer with an all beef  knockwurst. Delicious. Still feeling lucky I then ordered the foot long frankfurter $1 with peppers and onions ($1.50 extra for toppings). It was the best $2.50 I have spent so far this year. Haha. A delicious blend of pork and beef with a natural casing snap. Biergarten is a large place with open air seating. Beware of cigar smokers if sitting outside. The open inner bar area will give sanctuary to non-smokers. Staff is friendly. On Mondays there is plenty of parking in this ridiculously confusing planned urban development layout. Other happy hour deals with a drink purchase: Tuesdays are two for one schnitzel entrees ($17-$21). Single diners get the same deal (1/2 price schnitzel for one). I ordered a veal schnitzel but I am pretty sure I got chicken instead. Either way it was delicious. Two schnitzels and two sides for $11. What a deal! Wednesday is $5 burger nite with fries and Thursdays offer $5 pretzels and $20 glass boots (1/2 off).  Lifetime $10 refills with boot purchase. What a great way to start off the year – Sunny Choy
