Nomad has one of the best Happy Hours in the area, with $5-7 personal pizzas and $5 glasses of wine on weeknights. But even if you miss Happy Hour, its still an easy option for a weeknight dinner with a few friends that won’t cost anyone too much but will still taste delicious. In the summer, they also put tables out front so you can enjoy your pizza in the sun for the few short months that it lasts.
