five shots of Hennessy for $10 in NYC June 16, 2006

With these drink specials, a sawbuck will get you soused.

Get five shots of anything, anytime, for just $10 at Continental. One guy recently asked for five shots of Hennessy cognac—and he got it (25 Third Ave at St. Marks Pl, 212-529-6924).

At Beppe, you’re encouraged to finish a meal with Amaro, an Italian digestif. Ten bucks gets you a flight of three—perhaps a bitter Fernet Branca, a mellow Meletti and a citrusy Montenegro—served in dainty liqueur glasses (45 E 22nd St between Broadway and Park Ave South, 212-982-8422).

At Williamsburg’s Laila Lounge, you can always get a whiskey and a can of beer for $5 (regulars call it “the happy meal”), and happy-hour beers are two for one (6–8pm Monday through Saturday). On Sundays, wieners and veggie dogs are free, and Bloody Marys are just $4; throw in a couple of $3 tequila shots and you’ll need a day of rest to recover (113 North 7th St between Berry St and Wythe Ave, 718-486-6791).

Drink in the atmosphere—and a couple of decent vintages—at the Peninsula Hotel’s classy Bar at Fives. The daily “Five at Five” promotion runs from 5 to 7pm and lets you choose from five wines, each $5 a glass. Try two (700 Fifth Ave at 55th St, 212-956-2888).

A pitcher of margaritas is $10 from 5pm on “Taco Tuesdays” at Luke & Leroy. If you must eat, get two tacos ($1 each until 10pm) and two margaritas ($4 each) for your ten-spot (21 Seventh Ave South at Leroy St, 212-645-0004).

Available every day, Cherry Tavern’s “Tijuana Special” translates into quite a deal. A tenner buys you two Tecate beers, each accompanied by a tequila chaser (441 E 6th St between First Ave and Ave A, 212-777-1448).
