In the Reader's special 2013 Happy Hour issue, Chad Deal, Ian Pike, and Ed Bedford share their picks for San Diego's best happy hours, that time of day when the glass is always half full.

From 25-cent wings, $1.50 beers, and $2 u-call-its to $9 chicken liver mousse and a $25 five-wine/five-cheese plate, they've got your palate covered.

That transcendental space between drinking too early and drinking too much — Chad Deal

Not just drinking on the mind — Ian Pike

Silver linings of a down economy — Ed Bedford

So where can I get 25-cent wings, $1.50 beers, and $2 u-call-its!?

On Wednesdays, U31 in North Park does 31 cent wings during live trivia happy hour.

Matt's martinis at The Black Cat are not "fetid", in fact they have a very pleasant aroma, and Amanda's hair is not a "big red wig". Geez, why you so mean to my friends?
