Do Happy Hour at West Madison Craft Beer and Wine Bar

Happy hour is one of the best times to check out . It offers a selection of affordable "street food" small bites with $5 glasses of sangria, wine, and martinis. Order a $5 round of buffalo wings doused with Old Bay seasoning and served with celery and bleu cheese, or try the $7 instant knockout Asian chicken dumplings with a spicy soy chili sauce. If you don't want to share your after-work snack, order the Mt. Vernon Burger for $8. It comes topped with crispy onions, sweet pickles, mayo, and hand-cut chips on the side—so it's no wonder the burger is a house favorite.

You can grab the burger when you come for dinner, too, but you might want to try another signature dish, the Meat Pizza. The 10-inch pie comes loaded with Prosciutto, salami, banana peppers, and mozzarella. You can also dig into chicken tacos, a pesto-parmesan flatbread, or a Smoker Burger crowned with smoked gouda, smoked chipotle aioli, cilantro-lime slaw, pico de gallo, and banana peppers.
