This week's best beer and drink bargains all coincide with major events:
- UNC Charlotte students who are pulling all-nighters to prepare for final exams can take a night off from the library and head to Buck Wild for cheap drinking: 50-cent domestic bottles; $1 imports; $2 well drinks. This Friday-only promotion runs through the summer.
- In honor of the announcement that Cosmos Cafe is opening a second location in Ballantyne next week, thought it might be a good reminder that the bar-restaurant's delicious martinis are always half-price on Wednesdays (regularly priced $7-$10).
- And with Cinco de Mayo coming up on Tuesday, La Paz is throwing a huge fiesta: $25 all you can drink with tons of drink specials and live music. Can't make it next week? Stop in on any Monday or Tuesday and enjoy $2 margaritas.
