So yes, the whole happy-hour-being-illegal thing sucks. Like, a lot. But at least there are a few decent food specials around Boston that kind of make up for it. Kind of.

If you choose the right restaurant, on the right day of the week, at just the right time, you can score yourself a pretty sweet deal. I'm talking dinner for less than $6 a person...that is, if you order wisely.

While I can't guarantee your bill will total in the single digits (let's be real - one drink will probably cost more than your entire dinner), the money you saved on food totally justifies an $8 beer.
