In case you weren't already aware, 2016 is a leap year. That means we get an additional 24 hours in February to spend however we please. Around these parts, we'll be opting to spend them eating, and if you're going to eat, you may as well do so at a discount and cash in on one of these Leap Day deals available in metro Phoenix on Monday, February 29.
Two Discounted Entrées at Texaz Grill
Leap Day comes only once every four years, and Texaz Grill in Phoenix is celebrating with a special dining deal. All-day on Monday, you can purchase any two entrées for $29. Cut into the restaurant's famous chicken fried steak or hand-cut USDA Choice aged steaks all day long, and after 4 p.m., you can order a pair of the pecan wood-smoked prime ribs. For more information, check out Texaz Grill's website.
Free Pizza or Salad at Fired Pie
Fired Pie is honoring those poor folks born on a day that only comes once every four years with free pizza or salad at all 12 of its metro Phoenix locations. You must show proper ID to receive the deal, which is limited to one pizza per person. The deal is valid all day. For more information, check out Fired Pie's website.
Mac and Cheese at Sauce Pizza & Wine
