This is a request for value moreso than taste, I hope it is board-appropriate and apologize if it is not. I have two cousins, poor college students (both barely of legal drinking age), visiting me next week (weds - sunday) and, since they are on spring break, they want to spend the evenings drinking (and hopefully eating something) on the cheap. They have zero money and I am not presently in a situation where I can foot a big bill all week. Nor do I suspect they would have much interest in hanging out in a place with any modicum of sophistication.
If you can help me out with recommendations for places with great drink and/or food specials, happy hour or otherwise, from weds-sat, I would greatly appreciate it. Anything of the "$1 beer" variety would be bliss for them, if I can get some palatable food and a full bar in the mix then everyone will be happy. I live in Arlington within walking distance of a metro station and would prefer metro-accessible places for obvious reasons.
Thanks so much for your help.
