Jax, 826 SW 2nd, 228-9128, Mon-Fri 3-6 pm & 10 pm-midnight, $3.25 wells, micros, domestic drafts, $2.75-3.75 food menu

Summer is the perfect time for hanging out downtown at Jax. The rooftop patio just goes to waste in the winter and early spring. Ah summer... it's just around the corner. Isn't it?

Hopworks Urban Brewery, 2944 SE Powell, 232-4677, daily 3-6 pm & 9 pm-close, cheap food & 75 cents off brews

Just opened on SE Powell, this is the first pub for HUB. Tons of windows and lots of wood. It still has that new brewpub smell!

Jake's Famous Crawfish, 401 SW 12th, 226-1419, daily 3-6 pm, cheap food menu starting at $1.95

I was once accused of flagrant drunken behavior at Jake's happy hour that involved making out with a middle-aged woman from the 'burbs, and "purse dancing." I swear it wasn't me.

Interstate Bar and Grill, 4234 N Interstate, 287-9740, daily 11 am-6:30 pm, 50 cents to a dollar off wells & beer

Seven and a half hours of happy? Who can argue with that? Plus, the joint is named for the street it's on, just in case you forget where you are after the fifth hour.
