Happy Hour:
Wolfey’s Bistro & Pub
The happy hour is so good at Wolfey’s its general manager is even tempted to come in on his days off to nosh off the $5 menu and imbibe a discounted brew. “When you can grab food and a drink after work for under $10 why wouldn’t you?” asks Derrick Lanier. Wolfey’s offers its happy-hour pricing from 3 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 12 to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The deals are available throughout the restaurant, not just for those sitting at the bar. But secure your seat early because the restaurant and outdoor patio fill up fast.
