Billy Ray's Neighborhood Dive, 2216 NE MLK, 287-7254, 50 cents off drafts, 4-7 daily.

A great, cozy place to hang out and chug 66 oz of Pabst, especially on Tuesday nights when Mara is working.

Binks, 2715 NE Alberta, 493-4430, Mon-Fri, 4:30-6:30, $1.75 Pabst, $2.50 micros.

I don't care what anybody says, I'm pro Binks, pro salad on pizza, and pro warm fireplace and cold beer.

Lucky's, 440 NE 28th, 233-6937, $2.50 wells, $1 Pabst, Mon-Fri 4-7

Friendly-ass locals bar with table top Pac-Man.

Lutz Tavern, 4639 SE Woodstock, 774-0353, $1 PBR all the time.

If this place weren't so out of the way I'd be there every single day.

My Father's Place, 523 SE Grand, 235-5494, 25 cents off well and draft 5-7 pm daily.

It doesn't seem like a great happy hour, but My Father's prices are so cheap anyway, that it's a deal. They also have nightly specials like cheap Bloodys, ladies' night, and even men's night.

Slammer, 500 SE 8th, 232-6504.

Even though they don't technically have a happy hour, the beers are only $2-3, and this is a dive we should go to--that is, if they're actually open.

Watertrough, 4815 SE Hawthorne, 234-4970, noon-to 1 and 4-6 pm daily, glasses of beer from 70 cents, pitchers from $2.75.

A bar you can forget to go to, this cozy joint has pool tables, cheap beer, a good juke box, and a very interesting ATM machine.
