Thursday Recession Specials
We’re updating our popular Recession Specials feature. We’ve added wallet saving deals like Xochitl’s half-priced “staff meal.” For the next several days we’ll be rolling out each day’s specials. If you’ve got some suggestions of your own, please add them to the comments. In a week we’ll compile the additions and roll them all into Recession Specials 2.0.
Note, the requirements are these deals include a food component, this is not a drinking guide (not that thereâ€™s anything wrong with that, weâ€™re just trying to keep it focused).
