Snowy Day Drink Deals at Happy Fun Hideaway, Tablao, Fresh Salt, and Zablozki's
Happy Fun Hideaway, 1211 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn
This five-hour-long happy hour from 4 to 9 p.m. provides a dollar off already cheap Tecate and dark and stormies, but the real draw here is the Alec Baldwin pinball machine and the man cave atmosphere. Look, too, for $3 Franzia and cheap grub as well as plenty of original artwork if you're in need of a culture fix.
Tablao, 361 Greenwich Street
For a quick post-work bite, a deal on tapas is just the trick to tide you over until dinner. From 4 to 7 p.m., guests can enjoy $5 stuffed mushrooms, chorizo, or croquetas with $6 sangrias. The menu features a full selection of Spanish-style appetizers, so picking a few for the table will leave everyone with extra cash in their wallets. There are also $5 beer and cocktail specials if you can't deal with fruit floating in your drink.
Fresh Salt, 146 Beekman Street
If you're way downtown, post up at this bar by the seaport for $4 brews and well drinks. The short but sweet list includes Stellas and a few changing taps, which pair to a full menu of soup and sandwiches to take the chill off near the water's edge. This is one of the few cheap drink options in an area known for its pricey destinations.
Zablozki's, 107 North 6th Street, Brooklyn
It's a known hipster hangout, but cheap drinks can bring anybody through the door from 2 to 8 p.m. Beers like PBR are $3, or take a dollar off all drafts if you have a more refined palate, or opt for $3 well drinks. Bring friends and shoot a little pool -- this place is large enough to accommodate bigger parties.
