756 Fifth Avenue, Gaslamp
For the price of one beer, $2-$3, you can fill your gourd with Mexican food, plate after plate, every day in the Gaslamp during happy hour at Alambres. Sure, there are carne asada fajitas, machaca, carne con chile verde, nachos, tortas de jamon as well as beans, chips, and five kinds of salsa. But that's not all. Twice a month, on Fridays, Alambres holds a beer promotion con scantily clad girls from the beer companies and a huge free Mexican buffet. The combination leads to a relaxed and diverse clientele, apart from the standard downtown crowd. Happy hour is from 4:00-8:00 p.m. It's open every day from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 a.m., features breakfast, and has a dance club downstairs.
