This nice, friendly bar / restaurant has a great happy hour from 5-7. Selected snacks, cocktails, and wine $5, beer $3. Free parking in the adjacent lot.
Thomas Berkeley cocktail (whiskey sours, more or less), a giant pile of very good mixed potato and sweet potato fries, fried chicken wing "lollipops" with a great spicy, crunchy coating, and Thai chicken skewers were all good. Draft beer selection could be better--just a hefeweizen and Anchor Steam yesterday.
The burger ($10, no happy hour discount) was good though rare rather than the medium-rare I ordered. It comes with fries, which are $5 on the happy hour menu, so if you were going to order fries anyway the burger is basically $5.
