Anyone else super ready for the long weekend? Not really going anywhere exotic? That's alright, we can enjoy the pretty weekend here. While plenty of restaurants and bars may close down for the holiday, we found a few that will let us stop by for cheap drinks and specials all weekend long.

Beacon Tavern: Happy hour sounds like a good Monday evening plan—just what you an get at Beacon Tavern. From 3–6pm, grab one of four cocktails for $8, like the Gin and Tonic, old fashioned, Manhattan or punch.

BIG Bar: Fancy a frozen cocktail? Stop by BIG Bar for the Fire Cracker, available all weekend with strawberry daiquiris, piña coladas and blue curaçaos for $13.

Eight Bar & Patio: Boozy snowcones are on the menu at Eight Bar & Patio (in the downstairs area of Maple & Ash). From Thursday through Monday, try an $8 snowcone with flavors like "Don't Drink the Watermelon," "Tangcicle," "Pink Palmer" and "Forget What You Did This Summer." Need more convincing? If you work on Labor Day, head to the bar after work and get your snowcone for free.

Lottie's Pub: Spend your afternoon day drinking at Lottie's Pub. From 11am–4pm drink $1 mimosas, $3 Bloody Marys, $3 Jameson shots and $3 screwdrivers. You can grab brunch too—it'll be served until 4pm.

Mad Boiler: Send summer off with a cheap low-country boil at Mad Boiler. From Thursday through Monday, get a one pound shrimp boil for $7. Add potatoes, corn on the cob, sausage and jasmine rice for $3 each, pick a sauce and dig in.
