phx - budget friendly 2009 - bring on the specials!!

hi everyone,

given that everyone's predictions for the 2009 economy is all doom and gloom, i figured we could discuss good dining deals. every little bit helps, right? :D

so here's one of my new best deal favs -

maizie's on monday nite - $3 hamburger and fries and $10 bucks off all bottles of wine. cute neighborhood spot, good food, decent, fun wine, all at a wallet friendly price.

anyone else??

    1. Wohoo I agree! ...Does anyone know if there's a way to make a 'stickie' note out of what are sure to be stellar results of this thread for easier viewing by our users? I use 'stickies' on other sites and it's a godsend compared to wading through page after page of results woven within narrative :-) Happy New Year!

      1. Although still not cheap, I love Roarking Fork's happy hour. For a upscale dining experience you can go sit at the bar have a delicious and filling meal with a cocktail or two for 60 dollars a couple by sharing a few appetizers and an entree. Happy Hour can be slightly crazy sometimes but in the summer they have happy hour all night every night and every Sunday they have happy hour all night too.

        1. Fine's Cellar is having half priced food on Monday nights.

          I haven't been myself for this promotion (yet), but we have dined there in the past and really enjoyed it.

          1. Roy's is offering a $35 3 course menu again
            Avanti (? -- I remember an Italian name/restaurant in Scottsdale that starts with an "a"...) is offering a $25 prix fix

              Avanti is running an anniversary special, but is not in Scottsdale. Per the AZ Republic:

              The deal: Avanti is celebrating its 35th anniversary with $25 three-course meals throughout 2009. Choose from calamari, a salad or pasta for the first course, eggplant, salmon, chicken parmesan or veal for the entrée and homemade tiramisu, flan or chocolate mousse for dessert.
              Details: Available for lunch or dinner. 2728 E. Thomas Road, Phoenix. 602-956-0900.

                I've been getting e-mails from Roy's, but because of prior commitments, have not really read them. Still, considering the influx of material, I'd *guess* that there are some "deals" there. Last visit, by me, was great, and if the menu is structured properly, cheaper, on top of their fare, is a great thing.

                Sorry that I have not read more closely there. I promise the board, that I WILL read my restaurant e-mail more closely.

                Now, for SW, the MGM Grand has been sending me about 3/day. I think that most are around lodging, but I know that some have pertained to their restaurants. We just do not have any trips to LV coming up, so I can these, without close reading either.
