I sort of understand why today would be a good day for restaurants to promote themselves.
After you've done your time under a pile of paperwork -- and perhaps coughed up some dough to Uncle Sam -- you could use a free taco from Taco del Mar (print out a tax day freebie coupon from their website) or 15 percent off your entire bill at any P.F. Chang's today.
But when did Earth Day become such a prime promo day?
Now, nestled between Easter and Mother's Day specials, we have yet another reason to dine out. And in case the date doesn't readily pop into your mind, it's April 22.
