While Oakland's new restaurant scene can be pricey, high-end Italian spot Adesso offers the best happy-hour deal in the city. Order wine, beer, or a cocktail—the black lager from Oakland's Linden Street Brewery is a popular pick ($5)—and gorge on the free, unlimited smorgasbord of housemade salumi, locally sourced cheeses, deep-fried croquettes, and fresh pasta. It happens twice a day, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday, then again from 10:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 11 p.m. to midnight Thursday to Saturday.
