Want to play a little game? Khong's happy-hour prices start at $4 and go up the later it gets. In plain-speak, that means from Monday through Friday, get to Khong between 4 and 5 p.m. for a selection of $4 drinks and food items. Order between 5 and 6 p.m., and items are $5; between 6 and 7 p.m. you'll pay $6. Happy-hour drinks include red or white wine, Chang beer, Tak Tak punch, and a drink called the Killer B. Food items include korat beef jerky, yaso shrimp, Thai-style chicken wings, crispy minced pork belly, house-made Chaing Rai sausage, and crispy roasted peanuts.

Here's your happy hour view.
1. The Rusty Pelican
We know, we know. You go to the Rusty Pelican for Mother's Day and birthdays, but why, oh why, don't you take advantage of its amazing weekday happy hour? Every Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m., the lounge at the Pelican offers some of the best deals in Miami -- with arguably the best view in South Florida. Sip $3 beers and $5 well drinks and wines as you watch fish frolicking. Eye the boats sailing in Biscayne Bay while you chow down on ahi tacos ($5), Rusty Mickey D sliders ($5), spicy tuna rolls ($5), fried calamari ($9), baked crabcakes ($7), avocado fries ($7), and foie gras and goat cheese empanadas ($9). When was the last time you saw foie gras on a happy-hour menu? Yeah. That's what we thought.

They have an okay list here. Some places listed are cool places, but just not the greatest happy hour deals. Like The Corner. That place is cool. I like to go there. But $3 cans of beer is not the best happy hour. A great happy hour is supposed to be good deals and good variety.

Two I think they missed on here are: Sawa Restaurant in the Gables. They are in the top 10 happy hours of all Miami lists on gotime.com (customers vote) and they are one of my favorite HH spots. They have a huge happy hour menu for food and drinks and their food is full sized plates, which a lot of places don't give. Plus, the outdoor dining is gorgeous. The drinks are creative too. The other is Ra Sushi in South Miami. They have a good variety, a good vibe, good HH prices and their happy hours usually pack the house. So many people go there, not sure why it didn't make this list.

Nice list, I agree with many with the exception of News Lounge The Happy Hour menu everyday is awesome! The 6 dollar drink menu is awesome, however the turn around is nuts, seating is nuts. I've been asked to get up and move almost every time I've been there. The Lychee Martini's are my favorite, but damn, I stand up all day and when I have a happy hour drink, I'd like to be seated. Music is often way to loud. The Corner is tha spot! I love the place as well as The Federal! Keep it up Miami! Great Post New Times!
