To Do: Dino's Italian Happy Hour

Dino's bar

Cleveland Park's Dino has always been a great spot for deals, from its Wine Wednesdays to frequent Restaurant Week-style discounts.

The Italian restaurant launched a new happy hour promo this week. From 5:30 to 7 p.m. Sunday through Friday, all cocktails and wine are 25 percent off and the bar will offer complimentary snacks like housemade pat├ęs and sausages, crostini with various toppings, salumi and cheeses.

New beverage director Scott Palmer, who took over for Chris Cunningham after he moved over to Enology, is continuing the bar's cocktail craft with new fall drinks like the Five Families with Maker's Mark bourbon, Amaro Averna, Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth, spice bitters, orange twist and housemade Willett-bourbon soaked cherries and an Autumnal Dark and Stormy made with Gosling's Dark Rum, Velvet Falernum, fresh grated ginger, lime juice and Boylan's ginger ale.

The happy hour deal is available at the bar and the tables in the bar area.

What is that thing hanging over the bar? It looks like a badly wrapped body from one of the five families!

That's pretty funny ... but it's a light fixture! I think the photo makes it look a little out of perspective.

Oh good to know, I'm right across the street. I didn't realize they had a happy hour-- good thing because I can't afford it otherwise!
