From 10-11 p.m. Nitty Gritty has a power hour where they offer High Life Light taps for only $1, rail mixers for $1.25 and bomb shots for $2.25. What makes this drink special extra special is that it isn’t limited to one day of the week so whether it’s a Thursday night or a Sunday night, the Nitty will have power hour ready and waiting for your arrival.


Properly dubbed on their website as “student appreciation night,” Wednesday’s at Wandos promise $8 fishbowls with a valid student ID.

Chasers Bar and Grille

What is it with Wednesday nights? Chasers offers a great Wednesday night deal for $4 jumbo margaritas, but they don’t stop there. On Wednesday’s you can also have tacos for only $0.50. Bring your pocket change and head over to Chasers this Wednesday night.
