A Not-So-Happy Happy Hour

Dear Editor,

My wife and I were visiting family and friends on Saturday, August 9 about 4 p.m. We visited the Irish Circle for a cold beer. Inside the Circle, we noticed a large sign "Happy Hour, 4-6 p.m.- ½ price drinks." Since it was five minutes after four, we ordered two bottles of beer. The bartender said that will be $8, we told the bartender it was "Happy Hour" and our drinks should be $4. The bartender said the cash register is programmed to start "Happy Hour" at 4:10 p.m.!

Is this legal, it seems to be a "bait and switch" scam.
