Slap Happy: New Happy Hours


Thirsty? A lineup of the American BBQ cocktail (at Bluestem Brasserie).

Here’s some happy hour action for ya. First up, ~TXOKO~ in North Beach is launching a new happy hour tonight, with free Spanish bar bites (while at the bar) from 5pm-6pm. Things kick off tonight with complimentary tortilla and fries. (No discounts on beer or cocktails at this moment.) Every Tue-Sat 5pm-6pm. Yay, Saturday happy hour! Love those.

~GREENS~ has launched HH at Greens to Go, a happy hour from 5pm-7pm, featuring some new bites like mini empanadas with tomatillo and fire-roasted salsas, corn griddle cakes with romesco and crème fraîche, and a pizzetta of the week, all at special prices ($3.50-$12). You can dine on these items at the restaurant over a glass of wine (each month, a glass of red and white wine will be available for $5), or opt to take them home. And you can get that wine to go as well since all wines are available to purchase by the bottle for takeout. Mon-Fri 5pm-7pm.

In Hayes Valley, ~STRAW~ has launched Hopscotch Happy Hour, Mon-Fri 5pm-6pm. Enjoy $2 beer, $3 wine, $4 “cocktails,” and $5 appetizers.

Perhaps following a cue from adesso, the downstairs ~OLIVETO~ Cafe just started a late-night happy hour: Tue-Sat from 9pm-10pm, with free small bites.

And this isn’t really happy hour, but it is a killer deal: don’t forget every Wednesday evening, ~JARDINIÈRE~ offers select bottles of wine for half-off from 8pm-10pm in the J Lounge and restaurant.
