Happy Hour!

THE ISLANDER Only someone squinting way too hard in the afternoon sun could mistake the Islander for Tahiti, but the new Polynesian restaurant at 96 Union already has a popular happy hour. From 4 to 6 p.m. every weekday and 10 p.m. to midnight every day, glam twentysomethings bitch and moan about their exes while sipping rum punch from tiki heads and snacking on beautiful, tapas-style eats ($3.25 a pop for crab, tuna, or eel sushi; same price for potstickers, shrimp toast, et al.). Cocktails range from $6 to $8; the Zombie (rum with passion fruit and pineapple juice, plus a shot of grenadine and, yes, more rum) is at the high end, but it'll make you feel undeadin a good way. 96 Union St., 206-344-8088.
