Have you gotten over your Lollapalooza hangover yet? It's okay, neither have we. Whether you can't wait to get back out and hit the town or you're waiting until the end of the week to come out of your cocoon, we've got happy hour specials just for you.

Monday–Friday: Ready to head out of the office early? Head to Cold Storage from 3–6pm, where you'll find $1 oysters and $3 drafts to gear up before dinner.

Monday–Friday: Sit at the bar or on the patio at Formento's and you'll get half off all your cocktails and beer from 5–6:30pm every weekday. What's better than kicking off the evening with a cold one?

Monday–Friday: Sips and snacks are tops at Dove's Luncheonette, serving happy hour from 3:30–6:30pm. There's a seasonal tequila punch and the caballitos cocktail both for $5 each and snacks like bocadillos and cauliflower fritters for $5.

Friday: Start the weekend off on the right foot with half-price appetizers from 3–6pm at Commonwealth Tavern. They also have all-day $6 craft cocktails on Friday, so whether you're headed out early or finishing up your night, you'll find something to like.

Every day: On the weekdays from 5–7pm and weekends 4–6:30pm, head to Lark for the 3/4/5 happy hour, with $3 Bud Light, $4 Three Olives vodka cocktails and $5 glasses of pinot grigio or chianti. They also have regular half-price specials all day throughout the week (you can drink half-price Moscow mules on Thursdays), so whether you make it for happy hour or show up later, you'll be covered.
