It happens to almost everyone. You had epic weekend of relaxation, and then you get the Sunday evening special knot in the stomach because you know you have to return to work the next day.

Just about everyone hates Mondays.  You might have to work another 5 day work-week, but there’s no reason to drag yourself through the sludge of  piling paperwork and e-mail with out a little fun.  Kill your ‘case of the Mondays’ with some of the best Monday happy hour specials in Austin that’ll at least hold you over until Friday!

Check out our picks with a little help from our very own @AtxPartyGirl
