Finding a good bargain in downtown Minneapolis just gets more and more challenging. But from 5 to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, Constantine provides the most bang for your happy-hour buck anywhere in the city. The menu caters to drinkers, foodies, or even those who simply want a quick dessert with a three-tiered pricing system: Spend $5 on one item, $9 on two, or $13 on a pick-three combo, depending on how hungry or thirsty you are. A Constantine old fashioned, house wine, highball, or a classic beer and a bump are there for those looking to take the edge off their workday, while the burger can be appropriately paired with tater barrels and cheese dipping sauce. For those with a sweet tooth, pop tarts, sorbet, and gelato will finish off your happy hour in a delectable way. It’s one of the best-kept secrets in town. At least, it used to be—this deal is too good not to share.
