Good things happen at Barbette on Monday evenings. It's is the start of the weeknight happy hour, which runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday. Select pints on tap will set you back $3, $4 will get you the house wine or champagne, and $5 will get you an "amusement." What is an amusement, you say? We're talking appetizers: mussels in the shell served on a bed of sea salt, delicious French fries with lemon herb aioli for dipping, fresh oysters, and other items that change weekly. Between the hours of 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. you can enjoy Prix Fixe Mondays, where for $32 you can enjoy a four- or five-course dinner, which can be made vegetarian and even vegan on request. Things get happy again at 10 p.m. (Sunday through Thursday). Monday nights also feature music at 10 p.m. This week check out piano trio Supreme Privacy.
