Austin's happy hour specials

I have seen a thread along these lines, but it was a little bit dated. I have been to Eddie V's (50 cent oysters and 1/2 price on select appetizers), McCormick and Schmicks ($2 burger, $4 mussels, etc.), Sullivans ($5 burger), and Roux ($8 for a dozen oysters, $6 for a lb. of mud bugs, etc.) for Happy Hour. All four are in their own right great deals. What other happy hours do people know of that are worth the effort?

      Wow, Paul Silver!! You get major, major 'hound props for such an extensive list.

      1. Headed to McCormick & Schmick's last night for their 9-11 happy hour (which is evidently in addition to their afternoon happy hour). Didn't try the $2 burger, but had the $2 hummus (good), $4 fish tacos (pretty good), and $5 turkey sliders (so so). Food wasn't great, but pretty good, especially for the prices. Drinks however weren't cheap.

        1. I can't vouch for most of these, but here are additional places to add to the list:

          - 219 West (219 W 4th), tons of food and drink specials: M-F 5-9, Sat 5-8, and Sun 6-8
          - Dona Emilias (101 San Jacinto), 1/2 price appetizers and drink specials: Sun-Fri 5-7
          - Imperia (310 Colorado), 2-for-1 sushi: M-F 4-7, Sat-Sun 5:30-7
          - Lambert's (401 W 2nd), $2 off bar food menu and drink discounts: M-F 5-7
          - Malaga (208 West 4th Street), M-Sat 5-7
          - Manuel's, 4-6 everyday
          - Roaring Fork (701 Congress), bar menu and drink specials: 4:30-close everyday
          - Sagra (1610 San Antonio), 1/2 off pizzas and $2 off all drinks: M-F 5-7
          - Shoreline Grill (98 San Jacinto), 1/2 price appetizers and drink specials: Mon-Fri 5-7
          - Taste Select Wines (202 Caesar Chavez), M-F 5-7 and Sun (w/live jazz) 5-8
          - Trulucks (400 Colorado), 1/2 price selected appetizers and wine specials: M-F 4:30-7

          1. Kona Grill in the domain has a great happy hour also.
            M-F 3-7 1/2 price app, 1/2 price pizza, 1/2 price select sushi rolls
            (they also have a reverse happy hour F-Sat 10-12)
