Half-priced appetizers for after-work drinks

I was planning on meeting some friends after work this week for drinks and cheap appetizers. I saw that Masa has $1 tapas, but the menu wasn't that appealing to me. Any recommendations for happy-hour specials or good priced apps? We're thinking beacon hill, south end or theater district area.

  1. 28 Degrees has dollar oysters from 5 or 5:30 until 7pm. I believe they are closed on Mondays though.

      the $1 oysters are not bad and the lobster sliders are awesome!

      but the decor is EXTREMELY LAME! there's some type of powerpoint of a fireplace projected on their curtains in the restaurant. makes no sense at all. super lame. and then they start playing (again on some type of cheap projection) live concerts, so odd. its like one of those bridge & tunnel places, trying to look trendy but everyone inside was bridge/tunnel-ish

    2. Flemming's, theater district, has $1.95 specials at the bar only from 3-6? They usually have a half dozen +/- choices.

      1. McCormick and Schmick has $1 oysters and a bunch of other happy hour small-plate specials. I think it is only offered on Tuesdays.

        1. Mortons has some kind of specially priced menu in their bar from 5 - 7ish during the week...

            And one night per week the bar has free steak sandwiches (drrrooooolll )

            Or at least they did a few years back. I think it was on Thursdays?

              It used to be every weekday for the evening but it does not happen anymore, it's been a year at least. They have an early and late happy hour w/ reduced price apps now.

          2. Red Sky in Faniuel Hall has half priced appetizers, some items are great, some not so much, depends on your liking. Bacco in the North End I heard is also doing some sort of half priced appetizers at the bar.
