New Old Lompoc, 1616 NW 23rd, 225-1855, Mon $2.50 beers all day, Tues-Fri 4-6 pm discounted food & 4-7 pm $1 off wells, Sat-Sun $1 off wells all day

Geesh! With so many differences in when to hit the Lompac to get the discounted stuff, it makes it difficult to want to go here consistently. And as my mother always said, when it comes to baking—which can be applied to happy hours—consistency is the key. CN

Night Light Lounge, 2100 SE Clinton, 731-6500, daily 3-7 pm, $1 off wells, $1.50 PBR, $3.50 microbrews, $4 Guinness, $1 off wine, cheap food

A mainstay in the Clinton neighborhood, Night Light is also a great late-night, after-party place for when you just don't want to go home. CN

North 45, 517 NW 21st, 248-6317, daily 4-6 pm, Mon all day, $3 Czechvars, $4 wells, half-priced food

This place may have a crazy good beer list, especially the Belgian beer selection, but I can't get over having to pay prices outside of the happy-hour realm. There's a decent backyard patio, though, so it's not all that bad. CN

Old Town Pizza, 226 NW Davis, 222-9999, daily after 9 pm, $2 beers, $1 slices

I want to hug Old Town Pizza. It still maintains its old-school charm, with way cheap slices and nice service to boot. Plus, it's haunted! What's not to love? CN
