Think about spending your precious happy hours in places that offer more interactivity than a bar stool and a flat-screen — places like the Nomad World Pub, which recently opened a bocce court on its patio. Even if losers buy rounds, the 3-7 p.m. weekday happy hour — with $3 select taps, rails and domestic bottles — will soften the blow.
