Happiest Hour 

The Bridge Pizza

Ambiance: It smells good inside The Bridge Pizza. The aroma of freshly baked pies mixed with the cool sensation brought on by the restaurant's cranked-up air conditioning provides a welcome relief after a holiday week spent imbibing and soaking in the sun. "We try to keep it as cool as we can," says Bridge assistant manager Matty Kerr from behind the restaurant's counter.

Why we're here: The Bridge offers a screaming Happy Hour special seven days a week. Between 3 and 5 p.m., a large slice and a 10-ounce Cold Smoke or Eddy Out from Kettlehouse Brewing Co. runs $3. Six bucks gets you a pint and two slices. Like the air, the beer is cold and The Bridge changes up its pizza selection daily. "Every day it's something different, which is awesome," Kerr says. On a recent afternoon, the restaurant was serving a sausage, tomato and feta pie with red sauce, and a roasted pepper and red onion on pesto. Pepperoni and cheese slices are also offered daily.

Who you're eating and drinking with: The Bridge has the feel of a cozy neighborhood joint. Happy Hour draws college students hip to a good bargain, parents feeding children while taking full advantage of the free beer and professionals calling it a day a little early. "It's a social thing, too," Kerr says.

How to find it: On the Hip Strip, at 600 S. Higgins Ave.
