Sunday is the best day to go for all-day happy hour: wells are half-price, appetizers are $6, and Shiraz house wine by the glass is just $4. Plus, the people-watching from this second-story perch is primo.
This is your best bet to beat the Monday blues: check out New School Monday Nights for “insane drink specials," including $2 you-call-its.
