Thrifty Tip-- Eat Earlier!

>> 7.14.2009

Staying at home is not the only way to enjoy a nice and inexpensive dinner! There are so many restaurants these days that will offer reduced "happy hour" pricing on their food. I'm really enjoying having a night each week where I get to relax in a nice restaurant and have someone make me (delicious) food for the price of a fast food meal. Here are a couple of my favorites finds:

Cipollina, a local pizza place, offers a pizza happy hour before 5:30 (you can order the food right before 5:30 and stay as long as you want). For $6, I had a handmade pizza made with locally farmed ingredients that fed two!

Kona Grill has a half-priced appetizer menu from 5-7. The sushi rolls are $3 each (so good that we had already eaten most of the sushi before I remembered to take a picture)! The entire meal of spicy tuna roll, California roll, and calamari for two came out to $10.50.

Whether it's a daily special or an appetizer meal, these deals are around everywhere! Where do you find the best restaurant meal deals?

Ooh, I love a good happy hour. Tomorrow I'm going to Blue Sushi, a place in Omaha that had a fabulous happy hour a lot like Kona's! Love it!

What a great idea. I shouldn't have read this post so close to dinner time - that pizza looks awesome and now that's what I want. :-) Your blog is great! I'm a follower. Thanks for stopping by to visit mine today.

I love finding a good happy hour to go to. Great food at a great price. :) I do this often and it saves a ton of money, but I still get to go out and be social. Love it!

Hi, Kasey!

When seeing the picture you posted from Kona Grill, I thought... 10.50 is a great price for the sushi rolls and calamari for two... but all of that food would be an appetizer for me. Sad, but more or less true.

Personally, I love buffet style restaurants. And, because I don't have the most refined palate, any one will do. The five dollar Pizza Hut lunch buffet? Awesome.

Chinese/Japanese restaurants that charge an extra couple of dollars for sushi are my dining out equivalent of a BFF. 10 dollars for all the sushi I can eat? I get my money's worth. No doubt.

I love reading your thoughts and ideas! Keep them coming!!
