The clubby P.J. Clarke's saloon was named "Power Spot of the Year" at the Rammy Awards on Sunday night. And while the award conjures images of powerbrokers in pinstripe suits and expensive Italian shoes, the New York-based bar is celebrating today with a party aimed squarely at the 99 percent.

Tuesday's oyster happy hour is already a pretty good deal: 50 cent oysters and $3.50 DC Brau beers from 2:45 p.m. until 7 p.m. But this week, in honor of the win, the specials have been extended until 1 a.m., and $1 sliders and $5 martinis have also been added to the menu. Filling up for less should be a powerful motivation to stop by and hang out for a few drinks.
