Get Ready for the Weekend Wednesday - 021710

Happy Hour Edition

Here's a nice roundup of places you can hit Thursday, Friday and Saturday this weekend for cheap drinks, cheap food, and great times. Make sure to bring friends!

9th Hour Happy Hour on Thursday

Hit this one on Thursday afternoon. This week might be a short work-week but the amount of work you're expected to crank out is ridiculous. Need something to get you through til Friday? Here's your chance.

"9th Hour Happy Hour" is available at all Katsuya locations every weekday from 5PM to 7PM. They have a special $9 menu that includes small bites of sushi, rolls and tempura plus great cocktails like the watermelon cucumber refresher.

702 Americana Way, Glendale

Oinkster on Friday

Traffic is terrible on Friday's so it's probably better to keep your commute close to work for Friday's happy hour. Even though it's pay-day on Friday, it's always a good idea to save money.

Eagle Rock's (and perhaps L.A.'s) favorite burger joint has the most delightful of specials: the happy hour! On weekdays from 3 p.m.-6 p.m., burgers and fries can be had for $3.99, chili fries for $2, and an entire pound of their famous Belgian fries for $5. Pints of beer go for $2-3, while pitchers are $7-10. With all the money you save, you can go ahead and splurge on an ube milkshake.

Saturday Social Hour

Yes, I did say Saturday so you still got one spot to hit for the weekend.

Social Hollywood expands happy hour into the weekends with Social Hour, Thurs.-Sat. 7 pm-9 pm. Enjoy drink specials like a flight of “mini-tinis” for $12, $5 beer, and $7 wines by the glass. Nibble on bites from Michel Richard’s lounge menu.

6525 W. Sunset Blvd., 90028

Don't drink-and-drive and enjoy.
