The heralded sushi spot is a perfect late-dinner destination for men and women about town. With its central Warehouse District location, fitting Nami's 9:30-11:30 p.m. happy hour into your Saturday plans shouldn't be difficult. Start the night with $3 beer and house sake, $4 house wines and rails, and a host of food options from $3 to $10 in the bar and lounge.
While the rash of new local breweries has given Minnesota beer freaks a smorgasbord of homegrown choices, let's not forget the longtime purveyors of local craft beer -- Summit. Every Saturday from 8 to 11 p.m., Billy's celebrates St. Paul's own with $3.50 pints. Even non-beer drinkers can carouse at this Grand Avenue hangout with $3 Bacardi drinks.
Clearly this endeared cop bar has love for the workingman, regardless of uniform or collar color. Nestled on the outskirts of downtown Minneapolis, Maxwell's serves $3 pints from 10 p.m. to close and half-priced apps (10 p.m.-1 a.m.) without the hassle of congested Warehouse District watering holes and their oft-irreverent patrons.
