Happy Hours and Rotating Specials Nights

kaleokahu Feb 9, 2011 06:40 PM

OK, there was a thread started on "best happy hours" that never really took off. Pretty much everyone has a HH nowadays, but I'm looking for places that on a particular day have a great rotating special that is either unique to that day, and/or is heavily discounted off the regular price. Can be dive-y to highbrow, I go to both.

For instance, King's has "Plain Jane Tuesdays" when you can get a damn fine cheeseburger and a pint of Hamm's for $4. Bad Albert's has their prime rib night on Fridays. One night--I forget which--Goofy's has a decent roast chicken plate also for $4. That sort of thing. If Canlis has torchon of foie gras one night, bring it.

For each day of the week, it'd be nice to have a couple of places known for having good rotating specials. Thanks.

    Walked by Royal Booze and Burritos last night on my way home. Sign out front said "$1.00 off Tequila Wednesdays!"
    As neither a fan of tequila, nor Seattle Mexican food, I did not stop.

      The Ravenna Alehouse is starting all day Sunday Happy Hour. They usually have a pretty good selection of beer on tap and their sandwiches are okay. Don't get the wings, though. They don't have a fryer.

        Little Red Bistro has $10 steak night on Monday. T-bone or flat iron.

            Earl's on the ave has "Steak Night" on Wednesdays, and it's $4 for a pint-sized well drink that is stronger than your average cocktail during happy hour ('til 8) every night.

              Also at Earl's: Taco Tuesday and Spaghetti Dinner Thursday.

              Wednesday night at The Knarr Shipwreck Lounge is "Kill the Keg Wednesday", where pints of Manny's are $2 until the keg is gone. I don't think they have a regular food special though.

                Brunhilde: Thanks. I was at Knarr once a few months ago, but just for a beer. It appeared that the men's room was one of the most active retail drug markets in the city. And--strangely enough--the day after, my credit card number was used fraudulently. Not going back, sorry. But thanks for the reco. I'll try Earl's.

                Good luck getting one without murdering and assuming the identity of somebody who's already made a reservation.

                Piecora's on Madison has 1/2 price whole pizzas on Mondays. That's a pretty good deal for solid pizza.

                  I like the specials (and food in general) at The Attic in Madison Park. http://atticalehouse.com/
                  Also, Cheeky Cafe http://www.cheekycafe.com/ on Jackson serves multi-ethnic comfort food with specials you won't find elsewhere, like Oxtail Wednesdays!
