Dinner deals on a Tuesday night in Boulder?

LurkerDan Sep 22, 2012 09:54 PM

I know Arugula does a Monday night "First Bites" menu, Frasca does a Monday tasting, and L'Atelier used to do something once a week (can't recall which night), but I'm wondering if there are any dinner deals for a nice meal out on a Tuesday night. Totally flexible on cuisine, could be sushi or Italian or farm-table or ??? The best I can find so far is Cafe Aion which has happy hour pricing all night.

Specific date is Tuesday, Oct. 2nd (in case there's something special going on that night).

    Anything? Wine deals? Dinner deals? Fixed price menus?

      The deal we found last week was the "happy hour' goodies at 1010. The pate and mussels were good and the prices even better. I just hate trying to find a place to park and no matter where I end up, I still get a ticket. The Boulder metermaids are a real negative when trying to enjoy the place.

        Thanks, I thought of happy hour somewhere (and 1010 is a good choice) but we have a babysitter and won't be able to get out that early.

        Sorry to hear that about the metermaids. I don't find the parking difficult because I live here and work downtown so know all the tricks, but it sucks to hear you say that, because that shouldn't be the kind of thing to bring you down. I'm happy to share what I know if you ever want to hear the tips; one easy tip is to just use one of the numerous parking garages, because you'll never get a ticket that way, and they're fairly reasonable. And there are ways to avoid paying for parking if that's what you want.

          Dan,
          Thanks for the response. I really like all the foodie stuff in Boulder, but its getting to the point where trying to anticipate the parking crap has gone past the point of wanting to go there. Thanks for the parking garage comment, its the same one my wife gave me after we both got parking tickets. From now on, I'll stay in North Boulder, not the Town, but in the County in the future.
