As the clock winds down to 5 p.m., our thoughts naturally drift toward libations and snacks. For many, the very best happy hour around is here, at Tremont's chic-est little destination. For beer fans, the $3 pours are hard to beat, but this trendy bistro's happy hour also coaxes unwinding with cocktails infused with ginger and spiced rum. In the non-liquid refreshment category, Lolita serves up nibbles of chili-spiked eggplant dip, pork rillettes with toast, and mussels, which are always best when shared with friends.
