Last year, Eater proved that it really is possible to experience seven days of happy hour happiness.

But a lot has changed in just a year. There will always be the gold standards— $1 beers, half-off burgers, and steeply discounted oysters— but there are some interesting happy hour newcomers, too. Check out some fun new deals, like $7 blood sausage and $6 Negronis.

Editor's Note: The happy hour days for Dino's Grotto have been updated.
