If you asked us, we'd happily give you the shirt off our back—but since you haven't, we're offering 35% off a custom-fitted shirt, courtesy of the Brits at Brass Bones. And if the shirt fits...

Two for One at Crazy Pianos
Piano Man

Two for One at Crazy Pianos

This Dutch-imported Coconut Grove piano bar usually gets busy late on the weekends, which makes their new happy hour, in which all drinks are two-for-one for four glorious hours, a welcome respite from the "Wasting Away in Margaritaville" crowds that come in later.

6-10pm, Thursdays, Crazy Pianos, 3015 Grand Ave, 305-567-2462

Friday
$1 Burgers at Lucky Strike Lanes
SHOE RENTAL

$1 Burgers at Lucky Strike Lanes

The sleek bowling lanes off Lincoln have always been more than just a place to live out your Big Lebowski fantasies; there's also that lusciously greasy bar menu that has fueled you through many a spare-filled night. And now on Fridays, a buck gets you a half-pound burger so long as you pair it with a cocktail or beer, which you were going to do anyway.

A Playboy DJ at Solé on the Ocean
Nice Turntables

A Playboy DJ at Solé on the Ocean

It's not often you get to see a Playboy Miss August hold court from the DJ booth at a sun-soaked pool party, but Miami is good like that. So you'll want to claim a lounge bed at this oceanfront hotel as the "Turntable Goddess" (and former Miss Puerto Rico Bikini) Tamara Sky showcases her spinning talents. Drinks are two-for-one till 8pm, which is another reason to get there early.

Free Sangria at Badrutt's Place
Ladle Me

Free Sangria at Badrutt's Place

If you'd prefer to stay downtown for happy hour, then settle into one of the white leather chairs at this Swiss import and enjoy complimentary glasses of white wine sangria. It'll put you in the mood for the new tapas menu, which offers a slew of items under $10 including beef medallions with horseradish sauce and oyster shooters with key lime cocktail sauce. Decisions, decisions.

No cost, 6-9pm, Fridays, Badrutt's Place, 1250 S. Miami Ave, 305-415-0070

Tuesday
Wine Dinner at Bourbon Steak
Gluttony

Wine Dinner at Bourbon Steak

There was a time when $75 is what you'd pay for a slab of beef at Michael Mina's steakhouse. But now, thanks to a little economic meltdown, that'll get you four courses of dishes like Alaskan halibut and New York steak—with wine pairings—at this new monthly dinner. Oh, and they'll throw in free valet as well, because your car deserves a break too.

$75, 7:30pm, July 14, Bourbon Steak, 19999 W. Country Club Dr, 786-279-6600
