Late Bar in Chicago continues its weekly tradition of offering a $1 happy hour of everyone’s favorite crappy beer, PBR. From 8pm-10pm patrons can enjoy a nice foamy Pabst Blue Ribbon for just $1 at the Late Bar in Wicker Park. Afterwards, patrons can still enjoy cocktails and dancing until 4am.

Post-Valentine’s Sales

Obviously it’s a no brainer to hit up your local Jewel, Target, or Walgreens for those college-kid-friendly candy prices on Feb. 15. However, the end of the Valentine’s season provides fantastic instore and online deals alike! Keep an eye out for discounts on flowers, stuffed animals, jewelry, interior decor, and everything heart-shaped.
