Low on cash, but got an appetite for the good life?! Every Friday, 312DD features the best bargain bets around town:

Bernard's: You'll get one free classic Aviator cocktail if you mention the names Levi or Erin at the Elysian's sexy mezzanine-level lounge. The deal is good for tonight only.

grahamwich: Early birds get . . . free breakfast?! Be one of the first 100 folks in the door at the hot new sandwich joint for comped French press Metropolis Coffee and one croissant courtesy of Fritz Pastry. Graham Elliot's celebrating his first-month anniversary Saturday. Doors open at 7am.

Lush Wine & Spirits: The University Village location fetes its fifth anniversary tonight with comped wine, beer and snacks. Also, live music by Snackmaster Kelly. 5-7pm; RSVP recommended but not required at

more: Every Friday 5-7pm, it's happy hour at the unique, Gold Coast cupcake shop. You'll be tempted by decadent flavors in Pomegranate Mojito, Margarita, White Russian, Pina Colada, Gin & Juice, Lemon Drop and Maple Bourbon.

The Noble Grape: West Towners can take advantage of the wine tasting starting at 6pm. Then grab bottles and head next door to yummy BYO, Belgian-focused Leopold for mussels and frites, smoked rabbit, and poutine that comes with hand-cut fries, lamb sausage gravy and cheese curds.
