11 a.m.–5 p.m.: Singas Famous Pizza
176 Second Ave., at 11th St.; 212-253-7300
Good morning! In addition to dollar beers, this East Village pizza chain offers up individual square pizzas instead of the usual slices, meaning you can adequately prime your stomach for what's to come. Bud Light, Bud Heavy, and Coors are all $1; for high rollers, pitchers are $5.
11 a.m.–5 p.m.: Village Pourhouse
982 Amsterdam Ave., nr. 108th St.; 212-979-23370
The Village Pourhouse's cab-fare/bar-fare deal is getting most of the attention, but the lunchtime deal isn't too shabby either: A Bud is a dollar with any food order.
5 p.m.–8 p.m.: The Levee
212 Berry St., at Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn; 718-218-8787
The Levee's daily happy hour knocks a dollar off everything, making Carling Black Label, usually a whopping $2, much more palatable.
6 p.m.–7 p.m.: The Town Tavern
134 W. 3rd St., nr. MacDougal St.; 212-253-6955
The NYU hang's Fireman Friday — featuring, yep, firemen working the bar — is a true power hour. At 7 p.m., the Bud drafts pop up to a ghastly $3.
6:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m.: Pat O'Briens
1701 Second Ave., nr. 88th St.; 212-410-2013
The proudly partisan Boston bar outdoes the batch: For one Friday-evening hour, beers are a quarter each. Double-fisting galore!
6 p.m.–9 p.m.: Duff's
28 N. 3rd St., at Kent Ave., Brooklyn; 718-302-0411
Appropriate for Williamsburg, PBR replaces Bud here as the standard dollar beer.
9 p.m.–11 p.m.: Bourbon St.
407 Amsterdam Ave., nr. 79th St.; 212-721-1332
A Columbia-dominated bar that's all about Buds in plastic cups anyways, but especially so during this Friday night special.
