Our readers rated it the Best Pick-Up Bar in 2009 and the Best Bar to Meet Someone in 2011. Apparently, all those people are officially hooked up, because it's the happy hour that put Blackfinn up on the board this year. The high-energy bar and restaurant offers affordable American food and plenty of choices of drink to wash it down. Happy hours are 3-7 p.m. Monday-Friday, with $3 domestic beers, $4 Michigan drafts and well drinks, $5 house wines, and more.
