Gran Electrica and Colonie, which just launched new happy hours from 5:30 to 7 PM every day. Both deals include $5 glasses of vino and $6 cocktails. The food at both places (to put it bluntly) rocks, so we recommend getting boozed up and then asking for a table around 7:15.
The Grand Central Oyster Bar is also unveiling a sweet new drink deal. On Monday through Wednesday, the storied haunt will serve $4 beers, $6 wines and $8 martinis from 4:30 to 7 PM and on Saturday from 1 to 5 PM in the saloon and lounge.
