V Street - the Rittenhouse bar from Vedge's Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby (126 S. 19th St.) - starts happy hour Monday, Dec. 1.

It will run nightly from 5 to 6 p.m. with a few new items and drinks on a happy-hour menu. (See it here.)

Landau says weekday lunch is on the way; he projects a Jan. 2 lunch launch.
