  1. I don't think this is ground breaking but I like Chino Latino. Can be busy but they have good small bites, good tap prices and a spicy bloody mary.

    I also like Famous Dave's just because they have $3 taps of Bell's Two Hearted ale.

    McCoy's in SLP isn't bad because of their craft beers at affordable prices.

    These are mostly beer places though, I'm not sure if that is what you are after.

    1. It's not necessarily a deal but hands down my favorite drink is a Pimm's cup at jP. Get that and share an order of pommes frites and I'm happy.

        jP has a very good happy hour. It ends a bit early for us, but it is solid. Good drinks better food. And agreed, a Pimm's cup is perfect when sitting out front in the summer.

        1. Sounds like you've read about the Red Dragon but I still think that their Wondrous Punch is worth mentioning. Two of these babies and I'm past my limit. Served in "fishbowl" glass, and tasting more like punch than the three or four kinds of booze they pour in, at $9 or so it isn't cheap, but you definitely get your moneys' worth

          1. Surly Furious, in a glass, from a can, anywhere

            Town Hall Brewery's Masala Mama or Oatmeal Stout with a game of darts

              Erte has some mighty interesting martini specials.. don't know about a happy hour, though.
