Publican Happy Hour? Other Food Happy Hours?

oniontears | Jun 15, 2012 05:27 PM

My partner and I are visiting from California for a few days in July and staying near Old Town. Since we're grad students, we're looking for budget eats, but we're also from the great foodie towns of SF and LA :-)

What is Publican's happy hour is like? Are there specials on food, and what are the chances of simply walking in on the early side to get a table/spot at the bar? I'm guessing a table res won't get you happy hour...

Are there other happy hours we should aim for with high quality food and a great drinks selection while saving a few bucks? We're definitely looking forward to trying your city's wealth of amazing affordable eats like Pequod's, chicago dogs, Italian beefs, Do-Rite donuts and the food court on Seven on State (doing a comparison of Frontera Fresco's SF location).
