Avondale’s favorite little trattoria has started up a happy hour that you’ll want to take advantage of this holiday season. Stop by Poe Studio for some cute gifts, grab a bottle of nice wine for your boss at Avondale Wine & Cheese, and then settle down at Al di La with a $5 martini and a small snack like a $7 pizzette or a bowl of that delicious gnocchi for $9.

Italian wines by the glass are $5 and house liquors are $4. Sounds like good enough reason to stop by on a cold winter night. Al di La is located in West Ashley’s Avondale neighborhood and will be open for happy hour Tues.-Fri., 4:30-6:30 p.m.
