Eat Out. 4th Street Wine [Thirsty Thursdays!].

This tiny wine shop on Fourth Avenue and Junipero Street is an excellent place to pick up a good bottle of wine any day of the week, but on Thursdays the happy hour here is unbelievable with $3 glasses of excellent wines from around the world and a hearty selection of exotic beers, too.

A cozy, if not small, seating area, good music, and a relaxed atmosphere make this an ideal place to sample a few pricey bottles of wine at an incredible cost. They also have racks of wine, so you can take home the one you fancy at the end of the night.

Snacks aren't served here however, so if you need something in your stomach before you drink, a neighboring wine bar, Art du Vin, serves up very good homemade hummus, avocado bruschetta, and glasses of the good stuff too, but at a heftier price.

Art du Vin is attached to the recently renovated Art Theatre of Long Beach and Portfolio's little sister coffeeshop, The Portfolio Annex.

This Thursday, neighboring {open}, possibly the most adorable/useful bookstore I've been to, is also having a show for $3 at 8 p.m. since it's the third Thursday of the month. (The "who" of that who/what/where/when is still a mystery.)

Sorry, I was getting carried away. But Thursdays are definitely a good place to find yourself on Fourth Street in Long Beach.

4th Street Wine is located at 2142 E. 4th Street in Long Beach.
