Going through a sudden breakup? Long day in your gray cubicle today (which stripped you of your ability to perceive color)? Worst of all, did a Prius cut you off on the 405? If you're suffering through any of the world's usual mishaps (which might include these and then some), it might be a good time to find Dr. Phil's two recommended day-enhancing treatments: cheap booze and food. Here are ten places to get the treatment with the best bargain for it at that.

10. Memphis Cafe (Costa Mesa)

Memphis Cafe seems to understand the value of a good bargain because they've got a special for almost every day of the week. On Sundays, Bloody Marys and Mimosas are $3 - 4 a glass with the purchase of an entree and, if you happen to work in the service industry, you can get 50% a meal that day if you show them a pay stub or business card. Monday are $10 burger nights and Tuesdays are half-off meatloaf days. You can get 50% off bottles of wine with the purchase of dinner on Wednesdays and 50% off fried chicken on Thursdays (take that, KFC!)

Happy hour here is daily from 3 - 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. - 1 a.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

9. Hashigo Korean Kitchen (Costa Mesa)

At Hashigo Korean Kitchen, happy hour options are at a minimum--perfect for those who hate deciding on food. There's $8 tofu stew, $9 galbi bowl, $10 pitcher of beer--and that's it! Nice and simple. The galbi bowl seems to be the most popular of these, consisting of galbi, a salad, and two fried dumplings. If you like sweet flavors, try trading Heineken for a Hite lager here--the number one selling brew in Korea.

Happy hour at Hashigo is Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.

With its art deco feel and fast-dining-style service, C4 Deli is good destination for casual snack breaks which are made even better with their happy hour. Draft beers and wines by the glass go for $2-$3 while mimosas and sangrias are $5. To keep your stomach from getting too funky from all the drinking, take advantage of their $4 pastrami and $1 off deal on empanadas (plus much more to choose from). When you're waiting for the person behind the bar to bring you your food, there'll be TVs and the married smell of cheese and bread to keep you relaxed.

Happy hour is from 3 - 6:30 p.m. everyday and 3 - 11 p.m. on Tuesdays.

With a majority of the plates here ranging from $8 - $15, The Corner's happy hour will surely split your bill in half (or double it--depending on how much you order). Rebel against any anti-carb sentiments in your subconscious by getting their bottomless chips and salsa for $3, fries for $4, and then their garlic pizza for $4 (see? the same price as a regular entree). Meat-lovers, go for their $2.50 meatball slider and $5 sriracha soaked wings. Drinks like their Buffalo Trace Old Fashioned and Rob Roy are $6-7.

Happy Hour here is from 3 - 7 p.m. everyday.
