Doraku's Happy Hour Madness

The Friday Happy Hour at Doraku sounds like the best deal in town. According to Pamela Robin Brandt's review in the New Times:
Doraku's days of meals for single-digit prices have disappeared — except Fridays, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., when it's easy to understand why Doraku's name translates to "joy." During this locals' insider-fave happy hour, the $9 tab for one specialty cocktail gets each diner two drinks plus unlimited trips to a tasty buffet. The selection is small (mostly California rolls and similar basic makis, plus chicken wings, mussels, and fruit salad), but the sushi is fresh-made, the sake-steamed mussels come dressed with a habit-forming miso/yuzu potion, and servings are big. It's a $9 full dinner.
I've tasted the sushi there, it's damn good. Something tells me they'll be swamped tonight...
