Despite its name, which includes the word ‘whiskey’, the Happy Hour specials at The Whisky River are mostly beer. Drafts are either $3 or $4, depending on brand, and buckets of beer are $10. Beers on tap include (alphabetically) Brooklyn Lager, Mass, Magic Hat, Guinness, Yeungling, Sierra Nevada and Hoegarden. Bottles include Blue Moon, Coney Island Lager and Orlio. There also are well drinks at $4. The Whisky River happy hour is daily, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., at 575 Second Ave., at 31st St. in Kips Bay. There’s Nintendo Wii in the back room, and Tuesdays are Wii Bowling Tuesdays.
