Looking for a few new places to get your happy hour mojo on? ~ARMANI CAFE~ hosts an “Aperitivo Milanese” every Thursday evening from 5pm-7pm. Cocktails are $9, and come with appetizers like bite-size pizzas, crostini with sun-dried tomato tapenade or salmon and dill spread, small portions of cold pasta salad, and caprese salad skewers. 1 Grant Ave. at O’Farrell, 415-677-9010.

Every Friday, ~THE WINE CLUB~ does a $5 happy hour from 5pm-7pm. They open up all the new wine they get in the store that week and share it with customers (so sometimes customers can taste as many as 15 wines). They also serve food, like sushi from Ozumo, or Indian, Mediterranean, or Mexican bites. 953 Harrison St. at 6th St., 415-512-9086.

Starting Monday August 2nd, ~MIJITA AT THE FERRY BUILDING~ will be launching a special ‘Mijita Hour’ (AKA happy hour), featuring $5 margaritas and free chips and salsa with a margarita purchase.
