Unfortunately, today's economy has all of us pinching pennies. Still, it's imperative to have someplace to unwind after a long day, especially when you can hang with friends over delicious food and drinks.

Thank goodness for Grandview's Vino Vino. The wine bar is known for its great food, but many people don't know about the incredible $3 happy hour. Between 5 and 6 p.m. nightly, the happy hour offers an extensive list of $3 beverages and a $3 food menu.

With the fun crowd and tasty plates served up in a classy atmosphere, it's a great value. Yours truly had several glasses of wine, a couple of pizzas and a salad - and got out with a bill of just $19.22!
