Friday Recession Specials

We’re updating our popular Recession Specials feature. We’ve added wallet saving deals like Modo Mio’s “turista” menu that’s always a heck of a deal but especially on a Friday night. 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 there’s anything wrong with that, we’re just trying to keep it focused).
