What: $3 wine, $10 bottles of wine and half-price drafts
When: Daily 5–7pm
Why we love it: This haunt on the outskirts of the bustling H Street corridor draws crowds for its weekday happy hours, but regulars will tell you that Tuesdays are the best night to go. That’s when the upstairs bar hosts a “science night” full of brainy experiments and trivia questions. Can’t make it? Not to worry: Get your fill of $0.33 wings and poker on Mondays or half-price burgers and bluegrass on Thursdays. During warmer months, pull up a chair on the patio for some serious hipster-watching.
