In the neverending quest to retain recession-wary diners, both Meme Restaurant in Rittenhouse and Cooper's Wine Bar in Manayunk are offering some substantial discounts to make their happy hours practically delirious.

Cooper's, the newish sister restaurant to the long-running Jake's, is slashing prices even further. They're happy hour is a seven day a week affair, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sample a 5-oz version of Cooper's signature Jake Burger for $4 - the standard version is 10-oz and costs $15; pair them with a $4 glass of cabernet or chardonnay, a $3 Kenzinger or a $5 vodka raspberry cocktail made with fresh-squeezed lemonade.
