When you stumble off the 16th Street Mall and into the Appaloosa, a cheerful, independently owned spot, odds are good that you'll hit a happy hour, because the Appaloosa's happy-hour schedule is expansive -- almost as expansive as the drinks are inexpensive. And you can down those drinks while listening to live music every night of the week, a rarity in this part of town. The music, which starts at 10 p.m., includes a variety of genres, including rock, funk, soul, reggae and bluegrass.
