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
This week, we're moving on to the bar and restaurant-packed 'hood of The Woodlands.
CRÚ, 9595 Six Pines Monday through Friday 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. + daily specials
Get $3 off glasses AND flights of some pretty stellar wine alongside elegantly delicious small plates. For just $3 to $5, goat cheese beignets, steamed mussels, lobster and shrimp potstickers and more are sure to make you happy. Daily specials include "Pizza Mondays" -- where the purchase of a bottle of wine gets you a free stone-fired pizza; and "Charm Thursdays" -- where all bottles of champagne are half off.
Fielding's Wood Grill, 1699 Research Forest Monday through Friday 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Reverse happy hour Monday through Friday 9 p.m. to close.
Sit at the bar to enjoy a selection of $3 brews, $4 wines, and half-off specialty cocktails as you munch on a few of this casual American eatery's badass (and cheap) snacks. $3 will get you a taste of deliciousness like baked chicken and spinach dip, sriracha hummus, Texas-style deviled eggs and pimiento cheese.
Fukuda Sushi, 25701 I-45 N Weekdays 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday 3 p.m. to close; + Reverse happy hour specials
Barring a few holidays and a couple of hours here and there, it's almost always happy hour at this just on the cusp of The Woodland's sushi hotspot. Sip on $5 hot sake, $4 Kirin and Sapporo, and $4.50 house wines and more while you take down a selection of $2 and under nigiri, $4 to $7 sushi rolls, and $3 to $7.50 hot appetizers like calamari tempura, basil chicken wings, and gyoza. And if you're feeling particularly randy, sake bombs are $6.50. Just sayin'.

Jasper's, 9595 Six Pines Daily 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
This oasis in the center of The Woodlands Market Street offers an excellently priced happy hour every day of the week. Sit out at the patio bar (or at the inside bar) to unwind with a few glasses of wine and tasty cocktails -- including an ultra dirty martini complete with a blue-cheese stuffed olive -- for just $5 a pop. Want more great news? A selection of awesome edibles -- think fine-dining comfort foods like peach, gorgonzola and chicken pizza, Philly cheese steak sliders, and teriyaki chicken lettuce wraps - are also just $5. We'd call that a win.
The Goose's Acre Bistro & Irish Pub, 21 Waterway #140 Daily specials all week long
Alongside the always cheap brews and drinks, there's something great to eat for half off every day of the week. On Mondays, get half priced fish & chips; On Tuesdays, enjoy any pizza for 50 percent off; Wednesdays are the day to get big, beefy burgers and discounted beers on "Bring Your Own Mug Night"; and Thursdays offer half priced apps PLUS 50 cent wings AND Bingo. And that's just the beginning. The happy hours here are always a good time.
