Start the week on a cheery note at Kizuki Ramen & Izakaya (1482 N. Milwaukee Ave., Wicker Park, 773-270-4150), which launches a new happy hour today. Buy a bowl of ramen and you’ll get beer for $1, or focus your attention on izakaya dishes for $3 to $4 or drinks from $4 to $6. The deals are available Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 2 to 5 p.m. as well as from 10 p.m. to close.

At Sink|Swim (3213 W. Armitage Ave., Logan Square, 773-486-7465), the crew is joining forces with River North hotspot the Broken Shaker for a collaborative six-course dinner. The meal is $65, and you can tack on drink pairings, which are also a team effort.

Celebrate Shark Week with a $6 Whale’n Willie cocktail at Dive Bar (3445 N. Halsted St., Lake View, 773-770-4618), a combo of rum, guava nectar, pineapple juice, and more in an open-mouthed fish glass. You can take advantage of the special today through Friday.

Toast Spanish-style at Salero (621 W. Randolph St., West Loop, 312-466-1000) during their new Pintxos and Porróns deal—on select Wednesdays, they’ll bring by local chefs to pull together a selection of nine pintxos for between $1 and $5 (you can sample all nine for $25) plus porróns of cider for $20 and txakolina for $25. The first visiting chefs are Chrissy Camba and Adam Wendt of Maddy’s Dumpling House.
