Because really there is nothing in the world we need more in the evening than an inexpensive glass of wine or three and a plate of meatballs and a few mini sandwiches, Frankie's 5th Floor Pizzeria has seen fit to provide. After 5 p.m. on weekdays, the restaurant (inside 900 North Michigan) is launching a lots-of-things-for-$5 menu, including five buck pours of fancy, Alpana Singh-picked wines, and a selection of small plates ranging from $3 to $5.
