Strangelove’s sits in a neighborhood filled with restaurants, hospitals and Jefferson University. So they figure, why should happy hour only cater to the 9-5ers? On Tuesday nights, after that late shift, class or just because you’re out late on a Tuesday, head to Strangelove’s between 9 p.m. and midnight for select American drafts, house wine, well drinks and snack specials, all for just $4.

So this Thursday Alla Spina is hosting a DJ night with local rap icon Schoolly D. Turns out Schoolly is a regular at Osteria and Amis but hasn’t been seen at Alla Spina. When asked why he wasn’t hanging at Marc Vetri’s Italian gastropub Schoolly answered, “because y’all aint throwin’ a party.” So the crew at Alla Spina is correcting this tomorrow when Schoolly will be spinning at the bar starting at 10 p.m. tomorrow. How can that not be fun? Alla Spina late-night happy hour will also be in effect from 10:30 to midnight.
