After more than seven months of publishing Cheap Thrills, we’ve come to learn from many of our loyal readers that you enjoy our coverage of local happy-hour specials—and want more of it.
So writer Emily Dougherty has been tapped for the job. An online intern for 5280, she also reports for the Carbon Valley Farmer & Miner. She’ll begin sharing her discoveries with us next week, and her posts will generally appear on Thursdays, depending on the deals. (Next week it will appear Monday.)

But before I pass this beat on to Emily, I want to share with you my favorite happy hour of all time.
While many bars and pubs change their happy-hour specials regularly, the Boulder Cafe has remained reliable with its bargains. Every day from 3-7 p.m. at the bar (3-6 p.m. in the restaurant), all alcohol, the raw bar, and appetizers are half price. Not only that, but the atmosphere is a welcome oasis on the bustling Pearl Street Mall. Sidle up to the large, u-shaped wooden bar, and strike up a conversation with the friendly regulars.
1247 Pearl St., Boulder, 303-444-4884
