The day has finally arrived. You know what day. Election Day.

As we note elsewhere on the site today, some Valley restaurants — like The Breadfruit and Rum Bar and Upward Projects spots like Windsor, Federal Pizza, and Joyride Taco House — will be feeding voters waiting in line at the polls. But that's not all the action. Other Phoenix-area eateries are offering dining deals. Here are a few.

Verdura

5555 North Seventh Street, #108

Verdura poses an interesting question: “Doesn’t this election season remind you of Mike Judge’s cult classic Idiocracy?” If so, swing by the planted-based eatery in Uptown and order this special Election Day cocktail — Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator. That’s vodka, creme soda, lemon, and blue spirulina (gotta have those electrolytes) for $9. A nonalcoholic version is also available, for $6.

Yes, it’s Election Day, but it’s also National Sandwich Day. To make this overlap in the Venn diagram even better, Goodcents is offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal to anyone with an "I Voted" sticker or pen all day on November 3. The offer is good for any eight-inch cold sub for dine-out or takeout (not for delivery or curbside pick-up).
