Back at it, Chicago? A short, post-Labor Day week was followed by a whirlwind of Renegade artists that have our wallets wondering what we did with all of our money. Pair that with the upcoming Riot Fest and, if you splurged, Chicago Gourmet next week and we're ready for a few drinks that won't break the bank. Thankfully, we've gathered some great happy hour specials.

Monday–Thursday: Cheap oysters for $1.50 a piece or $18 for a whole dozen will get you through your evening at Oyster Bah from 5-6pm.

Monday–Friday: Looking for a glass of wine and some snacks? Head to Animale for a plate of salumi and cheese, served with a glass of wine for a measly $10.

Monday–Friday: Farmhouse Chicago offers up a different special every night of the week from 4–6pm. Beer nerds will want to stop by for $4 cheese curds and $5 drafts on Tuesdays, while burger fiends can grab a half-price burger on Mondays.

Monday–Friday: Half off of all wine by the glass is a great way to start your night at the Bristol from 5:30–6:30pm.

Thursday: For a happy hour with an interesting theme, look no further than Headquarters Lakeview. The Curious George goes to Headquarters Happy Hour takes place from 5-8pm and offers up $5 cocktails, $4 craft cans, $3 well drinks and $2 Curious shots for the adventurous.
