The food was great and the beer was cold and cheap!!! What a great atmosphere. Our server took very good care of us and took our picture behind the bar in front of the "Happy Endings" logo. We will be visiting Happy Endings on a regular basis each and every time we visit Cabo!

rstro25 from Kent, Washington:

Thank you very much for writing your very first Trip Advisor review about Happy Ending Cantina. I sincerely appreciate you named your review "Perfecto!!!" and rated it with all "5-Stars." I appreciate ALL your wonderful comments and great recommendations.

Thank you for describing Happy Ending as having "great food," "cold and cheap beer," "with a great atmosphere," and with a "server who took very good care" or you.

I'm happy you took a photo of yourselves behind the bar in front of one of our most popular logos. I'm also happy you posted a photo of yourselves at a Seahawks game, the reigning NFL World Champions!

You're fortunate to live in beautiful and historic Kent, Washington, located in the heart of the Seattle-Tacoma metroplex. The Kent area was first permanently settled by westerners in the early 1860s and originally was called "Titusville." During the 1880s, the town discovered hops production as the major source of income. Due to an aphid invasion which affected hops crops in Europe, hops from the Puget Sound area were commanding high prices. Hops were shipped from Titusville either by river or via rail. In 1889, the town was renamed for "Kent County," England, a major hops producing region. In 1891, Hops production in the White River valley came to an end soon after its own invasion of aphids. In 1890, Kent was officially incorporated with a population of 793. Kent was the second city incorporated in King County after Seattle. In the early 1900s, the area turned to dairy farming, and was home to a Carnation Condensed Milk plant. During and after the Great Depression, Kent was known as the "Lettuce Capital of the World." After WWII, Kent began to grow rapidly. Between 1953 and 1960 the city's size grew twelve-fold. In 1965, Boeing began building in Kent, followed a few years later by other aerospace and high-tech companies. In 2009, Kent got its first sports team when WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds moved into the ShoWare Center.

Best wishes for lots and lots of "Perfecto" Happy Endings to all your hopes and dreams wherever life's journeys might find you.

lorenpratt from San Marcos, California:

Thank you very much for writing a second review about your visit to Happy Ending Cantina five months ago. I sincerely appreciate you named this review "The Truly Awesome Saloon Continued...." Thank you for giving you review Trip Advisor's highest "5-Star" rating.

The entire crew and I are extremely happy that you're both returning to celebrate Happy Ending's 6th Anniversary on October 31st.. It's going to be one of the best "adult style" Halloween parties you'll ever attend! Be sure to bring costumes so you can be anyone you want!

Thank you for describing Happy Ending as "truly the best place to party in Cabo San Lucas" and that you "can't wait to get there again."

Don't forget to bring your favorite artifact to attach to our ceiling as a reminder of your visit.

Thank you for the good word-of-mouth you spread about Happy Ending. I really do appreciate all the wonderful comments and great recommendations in your review. And thank you for posting a photo of both of you taken at Happy Ending that also shows "El Jefe" in the middle. Only 2 more months until we'll again both be partying together at Happy Ending!

You're very fortunate to be able to live in beautiful and historic San Marcos, California. In 1797, Spaniards discovered a fertile valley they named "Los Vallecitos de San Marcos," translated into English as "The Little Valley of Saint Mark." They did so because they discovered the valley on February 25th, "Dia de San Marcos," translated as "Saint Mark's Day." In 1840, Governor Alvarado granted Rancho Vallecitos de San Marcos to his relative, Jose María Alvarado. Jose Alvarado was killed at the Pauma Massacre in 1846, and the land was left to his wife who sold the land to Lorenzo Soto. In the late 1850s, Soto sold part of his land to Cave Couts who soon began raising livestock. Although Cave Couts owned the land, Major Gustavus French Merriam, from Topeka, Kansas, made the actual first permanent settlement in the area. In the 1880s, German and Dutch immigrants began moving into the area. In 1883. John H. Barham founded the first town close to the valley which he named "Barham." In 1887, the San Marcos Land Company bought almost all of the San Marcos land which they divided into tracts. Soon the beautiful hills began attracting home-seekers. The original town of San Marcos was at the intersection of what is now Grand Avenue and Rancho Santa Fe Road. By 1896, San Marcos was a community with its own stores, post office, blacksmith and railroad depot. The first school in the area, which had started in Barham in 1880, was moved in 1889 to San Marcos. San Marcos experienced a period of growth from 1956 onward, when the first water from the Colorado River arrived. In 1963, San Marcos became an incorporated city. In the 1970s, San Marcos was flourishing as the third fastest-growing city in California. The population continued to boom over the next two decades. San Marcos is now the home of "California State University San Marcos," one of California's premiere universities.

Best wishes for lots of "Awesome" Happy Endings to all your endeavors, hopes and dreams wherever life's journeys might find you.

Thank you very much for rating your review with all "5-Stars" and for naming it “Get Ending But Great Beginning Of The Night Also.” In over 1,700 reviews written about Happy Ending Cantina, I believe this is the first review with that title!

I sincerely thank you for describing Happy Ending as "a place you love," where you "felt very welcome and comfortable," with "amazing service," "fantastic drinks" and "super cute clothes" on sale in the Boutique. Thank you for recommending Happy Ending as "a must when in Cabo" and for encouraging others to "say hi to Gene" when they visit.

You're very fortunate to live in beautiful and historic British Columbia, Canada, also commonly referred to by its initials "BC." British Columbia is a province located on the west coast of Canada. British Columbia is also a component of the Pacific Northwest, along with the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington. British Columbia's name was chosen by Queen Victoria in 1858, reflecting its origins as the British remainder of the "Columbia District of the Hudson's Bay Company." In 1871, it became the sixth province of Canada. Its Latin motto is "Splendor Sine Occasu"....translated as "Splendor Without Diminishment."
The capital of British Columbia is Victoria, the fifteenth-largest metropolitan region in Canada, named for Queen Victoria who created the "Colony of British Columbia." The largest city is Vancouver, the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada, the largest in Western Canada, and the second-largest in the Pacific Northwest.

Best wishes for lots of "Great Beginnings and Great Endings" type of Happy Endings to all your endeavors, hopes and dreams wherever life's journeys might take you.

brandi_rocks from Boulder, Colorado:

Because you've written 14 insightful reviews, Trip Advisor has designated you a "Contributor." Thank you for all your wonderful comments and great recommendations about Happy Ending Cantina and for naming your review "Yum Yum." I really appreciate you gave your review Trip Advisor's highest "5-Star" rating.

Thank you for describing our drink specials as "great!!!," the price of 2 beers and 2 double shots for only $5 as "awesome," with "very good food and reasonable" prices, and "the Super Burrito was crazy good."

Happy Ending's prices are the lowest in Cabo San Lucas and we never sell the cheap brands of unpopular Mexican beers that tourists never order. We only sell the world's most popular brands of Mexican beers such as Modelo Especial, Negra Modelo, Victoria (my personal favorite) Corona, Corona Light, Pacifico and Pacifico Light. We also sell Bud Light. Our most popular drink combo is the "Promo" that consists of your choice of 2 ice cold full-size bottles of Corona, Corona Light, Pacifico or Pacifico Light AND 2 huge double shots of our super-smooth pure agave tequila....ALWAYS selling for the REGULAR PRICE on ONLY $5....for ALL 4 "real" drinks. It's the best deal in Cabo, in Mexico, the best deal in North America and the best deal in the world! Even bars that attempt to imitate the way Happy Ending is operated, including the music we play, can never match our everyday super-low prices.

I'm very pleased you enjoyed the "World's Most Delicious Burrito": The "El Jefe Super Burrito" is only found at Happy Ending Cantina. It's 8 inches long by 8 inches wide and easily feeds 2 persons. They're loaded with machaca beef and the most delicious fresh ingredients imaginable, then one-half is topped with fresh mild green salsa and the other half with fresh spicy red salsa. The list of ingredients list is simply too long to name them all here!

You live in beautiful and historic Boulder, Colorado, located at the base of the foothills of the incredibly beautiful Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 5,430 feet. In 1858, gold was discovered in the area that stimulated the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. Also in 1858, the first permanent Anglo-European settlers arrived at the mouth of Boulder Canyon. In 1860, Boulder City was still part of the Nebraska Territory. It was not until 1861 that a Federal Bill established the Territory of Colorado and Boulder County was one of the original 17 counties created. The county was named for "Boulder City" and "Boulder Creek," so named because of the abundance of "boulders" in the area. Also in 1861, legislation was passed making way for Colorado's first University to be located in Boulder. In 1875, the first cornerstone was laid and in 1877, the university officially opened. In 1862, Congress passed the Homestead Act intending to open up public lands in the West to individual farmers. Adults over the age of 21 were eligible to claim 160 acres of land provided they cultivated the land and improved it with structures. After five years the land was theirs to own for a small filing fee. The act was part of the federal government’s efforts to encourage settlement of the west. In 1871, Boulder City was officially incorporated. In 1876, the the first high school graduation in the Territory of Colorado took place in Boulder. Also in 1876, Colorado became the 38th state of the United State of America with a proclamation by President Ulysses Grant. In modern times, Boulder frequently acquires top rankings in health, well-being, quality of life, education, and art.

Best wishes for lots and lots of "Yum Yum" type of Happy Endings to all your hopes and dreams wherever life's journeys might find you.

Andrew W from Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S., Mexico:

Thank you for writing several very nice comments in your concise review about Happy Ending Cantina and for naming it "Beer Pong." Your review read like a "4 or 5 Star" rated review rather than a "3-Star." I hope we can rate a "5-Stars" review from you the next time you visit.

Happy Ending is the only Cantina in town that always has at least 10, professionally built, regulation size, Beer Pong tables set up and ready for play 24/7. During Spring Break we set up all 18 of our tables and host tournaments! Happy Ending has been the Official Headquarters of the Baja Division of the Mexican Beer Pong League shortly after we opened in 2008.

I appreciate you described Happy Ending as a "fun bar with good deals on drinks," Beer Pong," and a "fun bar for locals and tourists."

Happy Ending's all-the-time REGULAR PRICE for 2, full-size, 355 ml, ice cold bottles of Corona, Corona Light, Pacifico or Pacifico Light AND 2 huge double shots of our super-smooth pure agave tequila is always only $5....for all 4 drinks! The REGULAR PRICE for single, full-size, 355 ml, ice cold bottles of Corona, Corona Light, Pacifico or Pacifico Light are always only $2 each. Our prices are in effect all-the-time, today, tonight, tomorrow, next week, next month, New Years' Eve, next year....all-the-time!

Note that we only sell the world's most popular brands of Mexican beers, not the lousy tasting, cheap and unpopular brands. And Happy Ending NEVER uses gimmicky pricing schemes like Happy Hours, Two-for-One or Ladies' Night as bait to entice customers....we don't have to because absolutely no other bar in Cabo can come even close to matching the quality and prices of our drinks.

Happy Ending also has FREE high-speed WiFi available to anyone who wants to get online. We never require anyone to purchase anything if they want to use our internet. Same for our free long distance phone calls to 60+ countries. Same again for those wishing to use our spotlessly free restrooms. If you gotta' go....you gotta' go....with no "requirements to purchase" strings attached!

It's always a pleasure to read a review written by someone like you who lives in Cabo San Lucas. You and I are both very fortunate to call Cabo San Lucas "home." Cabo is one of the most naturally beautiful and historic places on planet Earth. In 1534, Fortun Jimenez, a Spanish Pilot and Navigator first sighted parts of the southern Baja Peninsula. In 1535, Spanish Explorer Hernan Cortes, and in 1542, Spanish Explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, sailed off the coast of, yet still unnamed, Cabo San Lucas. In 1602, A Spanish Viceroy ordered Spanish Explorer Sebastian Vizcaino to lead the exploration of the West Coast of what would later be the country of "Mexico." Between 1602 and 1603, Vizcaino commanded a fleet of three ships who sailed from Acapulco, in present day Mexico, to Cape Mendocino in present day California. Vizcaino and his crew named the places they visited and their mapping skills were remarkable for their precision and accuracy of details. Their maps were used until the late eighteenth century to navigate the West Coast of the Baja Peninsula and the West Coast of parts of California. It was during the 1602-1603 exploratory trip that Vizcaino mapped and named "Cabo San Lucas," translated into English as the "Cape of Saint Luke." Baja's huge Vizcaino Desert was later named after Vizcaino.

In 1828, Thomas Ritchie, an Englishman and Sea Captain, landed in Cabo San Lucas and is credited with founding the tiny community. Thomas Ritchie married a local Mexican woman and they began a family. In 1874, Captain Ritchie died and was buried in Cabo San Lucas. I began living in Cabo with my wife and young children in 1986. Two of the first local Mexican friends I made were Miguel Angel Herrera, who was then about 75 years of age, and his adult son, Nestor Herrera Ritchie. Miguel and his life lived in an old home on Cabo San Lucas Street on the right side of another old home that later became the location of Cabo's historic Mi Casa Restaurant. Miguel and Nestor were both born and raised in Cabo San Lucas. Miguel's father was the original keeper of El Faro Viego (The Old Lighthouse), built in 1890. Miguel himself later became the keeper of the lighthouse. When Miguel was young, he married one of Captain Ritche's descendents and began a family. In the late 1980s, their son, Nestor Herrera Ritchie, became the Mayor of Cabo San Lucas. The largest Cabo funeral procession I ever witnessed was Miguel's. He was buried in Cabo's original cemetery, close to where the Riu Palace was later built. Cabo's "Miguel Angel Herrera Street" was later named in his honor. Nestor and his wife still live a couple blocks from where Puerto Paraiso Mall is located. In 1872, Benito Juarez, the President of Mexico, gave Miguel's father thousands of acres of land, including the beach where Pueblo Bonito's Sunset Beach Resort is located. Miguel later inherited this land from his father. Miguel proudly let me hold and examine the original document President Juarez signed and gave to his father. Nestor later inherited the land, most of which is now developed with 5-star resorts and homes.

Best wishes for lots of "Fun Beer Pong" type of Happy Endings to all your hopes and dreams wherever life's journeys might find you.
