Grace's Table. Just down the street from Carpe, Grace's Table also rocks the daily happy hour from 3-6pm (3-7 on Wednesdays). Glasses of the house red and white wines are $5, as are the soju cocktails (normally $9). Their food menu offers a really great variety of meat, non-meat, seafood, and cheesey goodness priced between $3 and $6. It's rare to see such a broad selection of dishes and non-fried preparations on a happy hour menu that also contains fried pickles and semolina crusted onion rings. If the bar stools aren't calling your name, no worries--the discount applies in the restaurant area too.

Bounty Hunter Wine Bar. Bounty Hunter started its happy hour discounts in the dark early days of the recession, but the enduring popularity of these offerings has kept them around since. Deals run Monday through Thursday from 3-6pm, and ALL DAY on Monday until closing. During these happy times, draft beers (including Guinness) are 2-for-1, and Bounty Hunter wine brands (Streamside, Pursuit, Waypoint, The Vigilante, etc.) are 2-for-1 by the glass, or 20% off by the bottle. You can also get a quarter slab or ribs for $5, or a BBQ sampler platter with brisket, pulled pork, and ribs with a dollop of cole slaw (a full meal) for $10.
