If you love happy hour as much as we do, you'll love this new series. We're taking a look at the best happy hours in town, 'hood by 'hood. To narrow it down, we're focusing on the spots with the best deals on not only drinks, but eats, too. From upscale eateries serving bar bites and half-priced wine to dives with cheap beer and burgers, we've got it all. See the complete list at the end of this post
Last week we covered Upper Kirby, so this week we're moving right next door to the area surrounding Greenway Plaza.
Note: For the purposes of this post, Greenway Plaza is loosely defined as on or south of West Alabama, west of Buffalo Speedway, north of Highway 59 and east of Loop 610.
Look out for daily specials on charred and bubbly Neopolitan pies.

Pizzeria Solario Monday through Friday 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. + daily specials
Sometimes, nothing hits the spot better than pizza and wine...and beer...and mussels, crabcakes, cheese and meat plates, and polpette. Long story short, you better come to this Neapolitan pizzeria hungry and thirsty because alongside daily specials like 1/2 price bottle Mondays and $2 beers and $10 classic pizza Tuesdays, you'll find $3.25 craft drafts and bottles, $2 off wines by the glass, and 10% off some seriously good antipasti.
Oporto Cafe Monday through Friday 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Unwind with stellar tapas and a few glasses of wine and/or cocktails at this hip, cozy wine bar (which, coincidentally was named one of our 10 Best Wine Bars for Drinking AND Eating). Enjoy $1 wines by the glass, $3 off wines by the bottle, and $5 to $6 mojitos, sangrias, and more. The petiscos, or small plates, menu features Portuguese and Italian-inspired bites like piri piri chicken wings, prosciutto wrapped dates, and chorizo and manchego flatbread for $3 to $7.
In addition to killer HH specials, you'll find an excellent selection of nigiri for just $1 to $2 a piece.

Oiishi Monday through Friday 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
It doesn't get much cheaper than this always-popping sushi joint's happy hour. $4 appetizers like squid tempura, kani salad, gyoza, and spicy salmon rolls are buy one get one FREE, making them only 2 bucks a pop. Meanwhile, domestic beers can be had for $1.50 -- but may we suggest you drop the extra 50 cents for a Kirin or Asahi? It'll make a better bomb along with your large $3 hot sake. What? It's happy hour!
