How's your kinda grey, gloomy (but cool) Monday going, Chicago? The week is already off to a busy start with gorgeous sunsets, free burgers and cheap Ubers all week long. Ready for a drink yet? Wish it were Friday? Unfortunately, I can't make either of those things happen for you, but I can offer a few spots where you can throw a few back this week.

Monday–Friday: Rooftops and WhirlyBall? How much fun can one have in an evening? Head to the rooftop terrace from 6–8pm and grab a $3 Coors or PBR can, $4 red or white sangria, $5 Ballast Point seasonal cans and $3 tacos, $4 sliders and $5 burgers. These might be among the cheapest rooftop drinks you can get.

Monday–Friday: Ice cream, beer and draft cocktails sound just like a summer afternoon we can get behind. At Yusho Hyde Park, grab $3 beer, $4 ice cream, $5 buns and fries and $6 draft cocktails from 3–6pm.

Monday–Friday: For a meager $15, Ocean Cut is serving a special with four drinks and four bites from 4–7pm in the Shark Bar. You'll go through a variety of wines and beers alongside oysters, tuna tartare and Jonah crab—making the evening pass quickly with a range of dishes.

Wednesday–Sunday: Those who stay at the office late should head to the Izakaya at Momotaro. Grab a two-course meal for $19 or a three-course meal for $23 with complimentary Tiger Beer and Shochu shots. Meals include dishes like corned wagyu beef tongue and a plate of simmering Asari clams with sake butter and garlic toast.

Friday–Sunday: Pub Royale recently got named one of the 50 best new restaurants by Bon Appetit and to celebrate, it's hosting an awesome happy hour. If you happen to work from home on Fridays, sneak out for lunch from 11:30am–1:30pm and Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4–6pm for 25% off select draft beers and $5 mango lassis with mussels with naan for $14, the Royale with Cheese for $9 and a side of fries for $3.
