Unwind with a pint and a game of pool at Driftwood Char Bar. The beer-and-wine-only pub in the Kingfield neighborhood of south Minneapolis hosts live bands most nights, but a happy-hour stop is a good bargain move. From 3 to 6:30 p.m. daily, the Driftwood knocks a buck off domestic taps and bottles.
