In this expensive city full of alcoholics, it is dangerous to know that there are several bars offering deals that make you very happy while making your liver hate you.

So when you’ve just missed bus after work and have an extra $2 to burn, it’s time to loaded instead. Here’s a list of five bars in San Francisco with happy hour specials that range from 50 cents to just $2.

Palio d’Asti-$1 Gourmet Pizza

Cheaper than a regular slice, you can indulge on a whole gourmet pizza at Palio d’Asti’s happy hour every Monday through Friday from 4p-7p. As long as you buy two drinks (prices range from $6 to $12), you can gobble up a whole gourmet pizza for a single buck. Arrive early…  there is usually a wait and the deal is only good while the pizza lasts.

Palio d’Asti (640 Sacramento St) | Monday-Fridays | 4p-7p | $1, but must purchase two drinks first

Kyoto’s Sushi-$1 Sapporo

Aside from their affordable and delicious sushi, Kyoto’s offers $1 Sapporo draft beers all day long. This isn’t so much of a happy hour; it’s more of a reason to stumble in any hour of the day.

Kyoto’s Sushi (1233 Van Ness Ave., SF) | Every Day | $1

Broken Record-50¢ Rolling Rock

Postpone laundry for another week, because there are bubblier liquids to spend your quarters on. Broken Record offers 50¢ Rolling Rock from when the bar opens at 5p until the keg taps out. Fill up on beer and then get sober and fill up on food, because there’s a full kitchen of savory comfort food waiting.

Broken Record (1166 Geneva Ave., SF) | Fridays | 5p-2a | 50¢

Tortilla Heights-$1 Draft Beer

Loosen up the tie and put on a sombrero, because Tortilla Heights has a stunning $1 draft beer hump day happy hour. Drink beer and snack on some nachos in this festive ambiance.

Tortilla Heights (1750 Divisadero St., SF) | Wednesdays | 4:30p-5:30p | $1

The Boardroom-Taco Tuesday Trivia Night
