Bad times make for good deals, as restaurants and bars try to woo customers with great happy-hour deals. For example, at Emilio's Super Chef, 338 East Colfax Avenue, you can get a "Fiesta Bucket" with five full-size Mexican beers for just $10 bucks from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
That's a cool deal at a place with a cool history: The owners had run a loncheria before they decided to ditch the truck and took over this corner of Cool-fax -- where they uncovered the old Super Chef sign, and decided to add it to Emilio's.
But Emilio's Fiesta Bucket isn't the only bargain out there, of course. Can you beat it? Post your happy-hour suggestions below, and help everyone have a much better week.
