Just up Cathedral Hill from downtown St. Paul, Moscow on the Hill recently expanded its happy hour for those who can handle their afternoon vodka. From 3 to 6 p.m. Mon.-Thu., the Russian restaurant and lounge features $3 house-flavored vodkas, house wines and apps, and $4 beers. For $5 try the Marusya Gold, a fizzy, long-legged blonde of a cocktail made with cherry vodka and champagne.
