Dishes you can only get on one day of the week

An article by Marcia Gagliardi about day-specific burgers got me thinking about high priority dishes that are only served on one day of the week.

I'm not talking about cheapy specials, but quality items worth trekking out to and which are only available on a single day.

Here are a couple I've encountered and would recommend: What else is out there?

Monday: ?

Tuesday: ?

Wednesday: burgers at Hi-lo BBQ burger

Thursdays: fried chicken at Magnolia

Friday: Challah at Destination Bakery

        Is this for lunch because for dinner it's always served. Been on a Thurs and Fri and available both times.

            Also Fried Chicken for Saturday lunch.

        1. Fridays: Bun bo hue at Ha Nam Ninh in the Tenderloin, SF.

          They can run out by dinner time, so I haven't actually been able to try it. But I hear from my former housemate, who is Vietnamese, that it's the best she's had in the city. And based on what I've tried at Ha Nam Ninh, I think most specials there would be worth the trip.

          1. Wednesday: Sidebar's Twice-Baked Goat Cheese Souffle (carry-over from Zax's)

            Thursday: Soup Junkie's Rice Crepes

            1. Does Peony (Oakland Chinatown) still have specials, different nights of the week?

              We once, some years back, went to their Thursday-night Peking duck special.

              And I have a dim recollections that Fridays bring some other weekly special. Bu what? I just went on line, but could get no info.

                Friday was soy sauce chicken.

                I've heard they're going thru a change in ownership and some sort of remodel
