Five: The number of fingers on your hand, the number of days in an average work week--and the number of all-night happy hours in Portland you've been missing out on. From avocado daiquiris in NoPo to catfish corndogs in Southeast, here's the game plan for a week's worth of eating and drinking that will leave you a little something in the piggy bank.

Feast on tri-tip sliders, catfish corndogs, fried butternut squash or a cheese plate with seasonal fruit and nuts, each for less than $6, at this chill neighborhood lounge during its happy hour. If you're seeking liquid refreshment, wine, beer, sake and wells are all $1 off. 4:30pm-close.
Comforting classics such as grilled cheese, teriyaki chicken pops and rosemary mac & cheese taste even better at $3, $4 and $5. And they pair exceptionally well with pitchers of PBR ($7) and $3 drafts/wells at this happy hour. 4pm-midnight.
Pair a glass of house sangria or a $6 bucket of Sessions with Spanish-inspired dishes like salt cod fritters, tortilla of the day, or Mahi Mahi ceviche. With prices ranging from $4 to $8, it's not the cheapest happy hour in Portland, but selection and quality make up for it. 4pm-close.
The Cuban lamb burger with chimichurri, stuffed risotto balls and sweet potato fries are standbys at this hip North Portland happy hour. And while an avocado daiquiri sounds bizarre, it'll win you over in one sip. Don't pass up the chance to try one, or any of Lucy Brennan's other house cocktails, for just $6. 4-11pm.
Mangia mangia at this all-day, every-day happy hour. Five dollars will fill you up with a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, crispy arancini or thin pounded beef carpaccio. House red and white wine is always $6 a glass, dropped to $4 between 5-6 pm & 10-close. One of Portland's best kept secrets!
