One of the few places that has happy hour daily is Bobby G's Pizzeria in downtown Berkeley. From 4 to 7 p.m. daily, get $1 off all beers, $2 off pitchers, $2 off glasses of wine, 25% off bottles of wine, $2 cheese slices, $15 18" cheese pizzas, and $5 Caesar salads.
Being Berkeley, Bobby G's serves up gourmet, organic Neopolitan pizzas and craft brews, such as Pliny the Younger. Pizzas are varied enough to cater to omnivores, vegetarians and vegans, and include standards like Meat Lovers Pie with gourmet combos like clam and garlic. My favorite is the triple mushroom with sautéed shiitake, baby Portobello and button mushrooms on top of fresh tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, goat cheese, garlic, fresh herbs, and a drizzle of truffle oil. Pizzas can be pricey with a small, good for two people at $15, and a large that can feed four for $23.75. In addition to pizzas, Bobby G's offers pastas, salad, paninis and appetizers like bruschetta, crostinis and chicken wings.
Bobby G's also has a bar area and three flatscreen TVs, so you won't have to miss March Madness.
