Check out its happy hour menu Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. and enjoy budget-friendly specials on drinks and appetizers, or sink your teeth into one of its delicious, wood-fired pizzas for a hot $7.
2. With a phenomenal menu of snacks and crave-worthy small plates, Taste in the Central West End provides intimate digs for first dates, meetings with long-lost friends and endless conversation. Get your week off the ground and enjoy an aperitif from its classic cocktail menu for only $7 on Monday.

This month, aspiring scholars with a valid student ID can stop by the Midtown chicken shack from 2 to 4 p.m. and late lunch on two chicken tenders, a side and a drink for only $6.50.
