Happy hour

Nestled near the Mississippi River on E. Lake Street's eastern edge, the Longfellow Grill is a neighborhood fave and boasts a destination-worthy patio. But its daily 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to close happy hours with $3 rails, $3-$4 taps and $5 select wine and bar bites might be worth the commute alone.
