the happiest of Seattle hours

In my brief and broke time in Seattle, I've attempted to find good food and drink for good prices. Here's what I've found that's worth checking out. Capitol Hill-heavy, because that's where I live.
why it's good:
- longer HH than most (3 hours), with a second HH late night; 7 days a week and all day Monday
- spread of drinks on deal - beer, wine, cocktails; plus food
- other deals outside of regular HH including weekend breakfast HH
- good space for larger groups, plus they have Rail for easy splitting the tab
why it's good:
- basically all day "lunch" HH weekdays, 11a-6p, and 3 hour HH weekends
- large HH menu with deals on food, cocktails, beer & wine
- Mexican food.
- lots of space including a heated & covered 21+ patio
Alibi Room
