Margaritas from Malo
Happy hour always includes a great margarita!

  1. Americana. It's hard to go wrong with a classic, urban spot like this. Happy hour is 4-6PM all week long, with $7 appetizers, $5 mules, $6 wines and bubbly's, and $3 domestics. Something for everyone!

  2. The Stuffed Olive. Looking for something different every night of the week? Then this is the happy hour for you! Each night from 4PM-close, The Stuffed Olive has a new special, including buy one get one martinis on Mondays, and buy one get one glasses of wine on Wednesdays.

  3. Blue Sushi Sake Grill. This is a personal favorite, with a happy hour seven days a week! Stop in Monday-Saturday 2-5:30PM, or Sunday from 12-9PM for so many crazy good specials, including $4.50 house wines and margaritas and $4-5 small plates, like miso soup or edamame!

7. The Blazing Saddle. Don't worry about getting off work too late. Happy hour at The Blazing Saddle starts early and ends after dinner! From 2-8PM take $1 off everything but premium liquor.

8. Hessen Haus. I walk into this place and instantly starting screaming "DAS BOOT!" like I'm in Germany. Monday-Friday from 3-6PM das boot is only $15, along with $4 half liter beers, and $8 liter beers. And if you're feeling hungry after an entire boot of beer, appetizers are half off!

9. Fong's Pizza. I've got four magic words: free slice of pizza. That's right, from 3-6PM every Monday-Friday you get a free slice of pizza with any drink, including with their happy hour deals. Take $2 off tiki drinks and $1 off domestic wells and drafts and eat up that free pizza!
