On tap: $5 draft Narragansett, plus $10 pours from top-shelf bottles like Spring 44 Vodka, Tanqueray Gin 10, Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon, Espolon Tequila and $12 house cocktails. Bar bites include confit olives, chips with spicy mayo and smashed avocado with sweet potato chips for $8.
If You're Feeling Peckish

To Satisfy that Wanderlust
At Mercado Little Spain, Sangria Hour is Monday through Thursday, from 4-7pm.
