If you’re anything like me, the word DEAL really gets your heart racing. I am always searching for the best deals, the most delicious bites, and most thirst quenching cocktails in San Luis Obipso. The perils of a being food tour guide! It’s a hard job tasting everything, but someone has to do it. Here are a list of my top fun spots to catch a quickie on a budget.
Novo: Monday through Thursday, Novo serves happy hour from 3 pm to 6 pm. Novo offers well drinks, craft on draft, select domestic beers and house wine for only $5! Try any of Novo’s “signature” craft cocktails or the bartenders roulette for only $8. For bites, you can order small plates of calamari, samosas, spring rolls, chicken satay, and salmon bisque for $6. The ambiance at Novo is beautiful, and, you can only in enjoy the happy hour specials inside.
Firestone: If you’re looking for the best priced drinks, and most sports on TV, Firestone is your spot. Monday through Friday you can choose from $2 Bud Light, $3.50 draft beers, $3.50 well drinks and $5 buffalo wings. Warriors, Giants, Raiders, and Dodger’s games included, but don’t count on soccer, ever.
Granada Bistro: While the Granada undergoes construction through early summer, you can enjoy $7 craft cocktails and some happy hour small plates including caesar salad, chicken meatballs, and chicken wings from 5-6 pm every day. The outdoor patio is temporarly under construction, but the upstairs terrace is open for dining. This is a rare chance to enjoy a roof top dinner! This happy hour only lasts while construction is on going.
Granada also offers a fantastic deal appropriately named “Wine Wednesday”. Any bottle that is under $100 on the menu is half off ALL day Wednesday. Their wine list has a lovely selection of local vino and an adventurous international list. Cheers!
Luna Red: If you’re looking for a happy hour that is everyday than get to Luna Red! From 3-6 any day of the week, you can enjoy house wine, well cocktails, draft beers and red sangria. Luna Red also serves up small plates at small prices for you to snack on. You can enjoy this happy hour inside or on the beautiful outdoor patio.
Happy bargain hunting, and remember, drink and ride a bike, it’s funny.
