Happy Hour

Cork: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Cork, 4991 S. Alma School Road, Suite 1, Chandler 480-883-3773. corkrestaurant.net Hours: 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday

The Details: There's nothing average about the four-star restaurant's new happy hour. It's an extensive, mouthwatering menu unto itself, beginning with $5 snacks like the duck fat French fries and gazpacho, and moving into smaller entrees like the Chef Burger, seared yellowfin tuna, and Mediterranean mussels (each $8). As if this wasn't enough, there are two mini desserts offered for $3 a piece: mini creme brulee and sweet potato cake.

On the drinks side, Cork offers a handful of $3 champagne cocktails (but good luck getting a bellini the week after Mother's Day -- our server said they were lucky to have any champagne left at all); $4 cocktails like the true-to-its-name cantaloupe martini; and $4 house glasses of chardonnay or cabernet sauvignon.
