night of the week special--UPDATE

About two years ago, Warthog posted a query on Night of the Week specials. I was thinking about this since, for some reason this week, I've ended up hitting two of them: steak night at Duda's last night, a 16-oz porterhouse, with baked potato, & veg for $10.99, and, on Tuesday, the $1 crab night at Islander Restaurant on Miller Island in eastern Baltimore County.

I'm trying to make mental notes to remember all these. The Islander also has $1 crabs on Thursday (they were small, from NC, but very, very good, btw) and Duda's has half price burger night on Wednesday, and half price shellfish night on Tuesday....

So, what specials have you made notes on (mental or otherwise)?

          1. Read this online today:
            It mentions The Washingtonian's favorite happy hour specials.

            1. Well, these aren't really night of the week specials, but noon to 4pm specials.

              On Mondays at Cross Street Market, Nick's Sushi offers sushi at half price. It can be a wait, but it's a pretty amazing scene watching folks from absolutely all walks of life chowing down on sushi! And, well, the sushi's not at all bad.

              And, on Tuesdays, half price crab cakes at Nick's...
