Hurry Curry

Even before last fall's economic crash and burn, Hurry Curry was recession-ready with its 3-to-6 p.m. happy hour, replete with drinks and a nosh at bargain prices — and a time slot many a wandering, thirsty, unemployed Westsider could embrace. Hell, Hurry Curry's happy hour practically counts as lunch when you get up at noon. Located in West L.A.'s little Tokyo, Hurry Curry's strip-mall digs (between the Tomato bank and a crepe shack) are modest and cozy. The menu includes cold or hot sake selections, apple-sake martinis, pomegranate-sake martinis and mellow-and-sweet yet strangely perfumed lychee-sake martinis (Hurry Curry only has a beer-and-wine license), all for three bucks. All items on the appetizer menu are $3 as well. Fried chicken with a spicy mayo sauce, battered calamari, crispy gyoza, soft and salty edamame — they're all here, real cheap. Go on, unemployed Angeleno, order up five helpings of that sweet, glossy meat, and still have enough left over to throw down a couple Sapporos (also $3). 2131 Sawtelle Blvd., L.A. (310) 473-1640. Mon.-Fri., 3-6 p.m.
