The weekend may be over, but there's no reason that should keep you from enjoying a couple drinks after work. Start off your week with happy hour at Natsumi Tapas, a new Japanese-Italian fusion spot in Gramercy. On Monday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., chefs will be serving up small plates including crispy blue crab dumplings ($5), basil pesto and spicy scallion meatballs ($5), and various sushi rolls ($4). In addition to tapas, they'll also be offering happy hour drink specials including a Spicy Margarita, the French Kiss, and a rotating selection of Drinks of the Day, ranging from cocktails to fresh-pressed juices (each $8). Can't make it on Monday? Don't worry, their happy hour menu will be in place all summer long.

On Tuesday, get a taste of Mexico City's thriving food scene with a family-style, eleven-dish feast at Xixa in Williamsburg. The menu consists of classic Mexican dishes with a twist, inspired by Chef Jason Marcus' world travels and by CDMX's own culinary fusion. Highlights include Mexican staples—think queso fundido and churros—as well as more experimental dishes, like grilled octopus and Mayan hummus. A $58 ticket gives you access to all the Mexican delicacies you can eat, as well as a discussion with Chef Marcus himself. Purchase tickets here.

On Wednesday, head to Clinton Hill for a six-course tasting menu by Mekelburg's paired with six beers from Kent Falls Brewery. The menu is guaranteed to be fantastic, with marinated mussel crostini, bluefish crudo, Chile braised goat, and sweet, sweet cheese due to be served up across six courses. Given the prowess with which the restaurant-slash-specialty-grocery-store regularly serves up the goods, this meal is not to be missed. You'll be washing it all down with smoked lager, barrel-aged farmhouse ale, and a chocolate spelt porter. Purchase tickets here.

Usher in an end to the workweek with cocktails and guacamole at Dos Caminos on Thursday evening. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., you can sip specialty cocktails paired with free guac at all Dos Caminos locations. Options go far beyond the typical chips and guac combo: try La Flaca, a summery option that includes watermelon, ginger, mint, and queso fresco and is served with cucumber rather than tortilla chips, paired with a Honeydew ($16) or Frozen Prickly Pear ($13) margarita for a refreshing end to your day. Available at all Dos Caminos locations.
