The above is not part of happy hour, just an example of the grub available at Eastlake's Cafe Venus, under the radar and solid. During happy hour here (4:00-7:00 p.m.), you can get a $3 salad and a $5 pizza, as well as assorted $5 appetizers. Drinks are all 50 cents off in the cafe, with $5 pitchers of PBR in the Mars Bar. One salad plus one pizza plus one pitcher equals $13. (Cafe Venus & Mars Bar, 609 Eastlake Ave. E., 624-4516.)
