Kensington Quarters, 1310 Frankford Ave.; 5-7 p.m. Sunday-Friday.

To me, Fishtown’s KQ is a bit of dinnertime splurge. Happy hour at the bar, though, has all the makings of a value, with $7 cocktails, a $5 beer of the day, a $6 red and white wine of the day, and Wacker’s Bohemian in a can for $4.

The food is where the action is because of the sheer number of options: the celebrated KQ Burger, a $20 retail item, is marked down to $12. You can get a sausage for $7, a pasta special for $7, or a fried chicken, fried scrapple, or ham and pimento toast for $5. Trying to shed your winter bod? There’s a chopped salad for $5.
