If you're a young professional or still a student, I have a deal for you. Our buddy Lana, another PhD student, so you know she's pretty smart, turned our group of friends on to what is sure to be a Friday night tradition.
Doraku, located just east of the movie theater on Lincoln Rd., has a happy hour from 5-8pm, every Friday, during which drinks are 2-for-1 and chef Hiro serves up complimentary hors d'oeuvres such as maki rolls, spring rolls, and chicken wings. I hope that not that many people read this, come to think of it, and I'm considering deleting this entry altogether.
Cafeteria (546 Lincoln Rd. at the intersection of Lincoln and Pennsylvania) has an open bar from 1030 to 1130 on Friday nights, so you just have to fill a couple of hours before commencing an extremely cheap South Beach night on the town.
