Cheap is the Word

The next best thing to free food is cheap food. There are a lot of places that have really good happy hours. I can't tell you how many times I have spent a Friday night after work hanging out at Uno's just because of their cheap appetizers. I decided to branch out recently, and I thought I would take you guys with me. Here is just the beginning to a very long list of happy hour specials in Cambridge and Somerville.

Harvard and Porter Square
3p-7p and then again 10p-closing (12:30a)
In the lounge they have "snack hour" most of their appetizers (but watch out not all) are 1.99 or 2.99.

Grendal's Den

All food is half price 5p-7:30p and then again 9p-11:30p Sunday through Thursday.
They also have the Sunday Seven. Seven items are listed for $1 from 8p-11:30p.

And there you have it. As I said, I am sure there is more to love. If you want feel free to let me know about your favorite! Also, make sure you are careful, some places only offer happy hours in the lounge. I tried to find out all the info I could, but they aren't all so easy to find online.
