Midweek specials - Baltimore?
Gertrude's at the BMA has Tuesdays with Gertie - $10 entrees and discounts on selected wines by the glass.
Helen's Garden in Canton has a 3-course wine tasting menu for $29 on Tuesdays and something else on Wednesdays (can't remember the details?)
Taste at Belvedere Square has 2 for 1 selected menu items on Tuesdays and Prix Fixe Thursdays for $30.
Are there any other midweek "specials" at places in/around Baltimore? Any type of cuisine (except chain restaurants) is ok.
Bartenders in Canton on Boston Street has $6.00 pizzas (except for the 2 most expensive ones) on Monday nights. And a unique wine by the glass list. http://www.bartendersbaltimore.com/me...
Ding How on Broadway has one of the best bargain lunches. Not stellar chinese, but good enough. And for about $5 (might be a bit more now - but still less than $6), you get an egg roll, soup and an entree, along with hot tea.
Ze Mean Bean on Thursdays is $9.99 for a bowl of borscht and an entree of stuffed cabbage (plus a couple other choices; those are the ones i remember).

Many thanks for posting this!
Michael's on Eastern (just block or two west of 95) - not sure what the rest of the day-of-the-week specials are but last time I went, Thursday night was still a huge (40 ounce?) Prime rib, T-bone or Porterhouse with two sides for something like $13-15. Believe it or not, it's actually a decent quality steak. IIRC, another weeknight had steamed shrimp as the special, and another night had crablegs
Wednesday - is it still half-price burger night at Kisling's?
Monday nights used to be AYCE ribs at Bare Bones on RT 40, but I've not been there in a long time, so call first to confirm.
Wednesday nights are half price pasta dishes at Winks in Brewers Hill. Good food and BYOB (2.50 cork fee per table)
I live a block from Helen's.... they have 12 dollar main courses on Wednesdays... but the catch is that they do not take reservations on Wednesdays.
Great thread! We've been compiling a list of daily food/drink specials. So many good ones. Here are some to add to the list:
- 10 entrees for $10 at Waterfront (Tuesdays)
- Neighborhood Night - 25% off food purchases at Todd Connors (Wednesdays)
- 1/2 price crab cakes at Captain Larrys (Wednesdays)
- $15 steak night at Mahaffeys (Tuesdays)
Those are some food specials that jumped out at me, but we've got a few hundred more...including a lot of drink/happy hour ones.
My favorite in my hood (Fed Hill) is Ryleighs...they have $2 crabs/$1 (fantastic) grilled ears of corn w/ feta(?) and butter, $1 oysters, etc on Tuesdays...then Wed nights their chef does a great $10 tapas-style menu, plus they have $15 bottles of wine from 5-close. That last one makes me very happy...
Timbuktu has $11.99 lobster night on Monday's. Tuesday's are shrimp or pasta for $8.99. Wednesday offers $15.99 steak and Thursday is $14.99 fish night. www.timbukturestaurant.com.
Michael's on Eastern Avenue offers week night specials, i.e., roast prime rib on Monday nights for $12.95. Two broiled crab cakes on Wednesday's for $15.95. FoiGras
Alonso's on Cold Spring Lane has a Wednesday special 3-course prix fixe for $19.99 and half price bottles of wine.
Corks has 1/2 price steak and cabernet on Tuesdays and $9 pasta on Wednesdays. I've done the steak night--it was quite good, though the selection of half price wines is limited.
On Sundays, Prime Rib used to (does?) a nice list of half price wines. A few months ago, we drank a '97 Mayacamas that was terrific.
