Last year we said goodbye to Tapino, Pink Pony and some of our other favorite haunts. But today we're not thinking about layoffs or gas prices or the restaurant tombstones that'll inevitably pile up in 2010. Today we're going all Pretty Mary Sunshine on the economy's ass, courtesy of Roaring Fork and Mary Coyle Ol' Fashion Ice Cream Parlor.
See, the upside of a
recession slightly sluggish period is that restaurants go out of their way to attract new customers and win back old ones. The result? Mega dining deals. On Sunday, February 7, bring a friend/lover/spouse/relative/stranger to Roaring Fork restaurant in Scottsdale and get one of your entrees free. Yes, you read that correctly:
This Sunday only, buy one entree at Roaring Fork and get the second (of equal/lesser value, natch) for FREE.
But wait, there's more!
Mary Coyle Ice Cream Parlor on 7th Ave. north of Missouri is featuring a half-price gift certificate special now through the end of February. Pay $25 and get a $50 gift certificate. Not that we've ever tried *cough, cough*, but it would take a boatload of banana splits and hot fudge sundaes to equal $50 -- so you'll just have to go back again and again. (P.S. - If you're in a hurry, there's a drive-thru window!)
