Happy Hour

Sushi Roku: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Sushi Roku, 7277 E. Camelback Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85251. (480) 970-2121. www.sushiroku.com

The Hours: 4 to 6:30 p.m. Daily

The Details: Sushi Roku's new happy hour menu features eleven "Bites" - like the Sautéed Garlic Green Beans, Crispy Chicken, and Popcorn Rock Shrimp - arranged into categories from $3 to $5 each. There are also discounts on sushi, skewers (chicken, shrimp, salmon, or asparagus), and even two dessert choices (for just $3 a piece). On the flipside of the happy hour menu are the "Sips" - an array of the restaurant's signature cocktails, wine by the glass, well drinks, and beer, all arranged again into $3-5 groups. A large Sapporo, for example, will usually cost you $8; now it's just $5. It's the cocktails, however, that are the best deal: Take the Strawberry Fizz (42 Below Vodka with fresh strawberries and lime, topped with club soda), a four-dollar-sign, you-betta-work $12 normally, now a happy-hour steal at just $4.
