Tours, tomahawk steaks and $2 off appetizers

As you read this, you’re probably deep in your umpteenth cup of coffee, planning for the week ahead, and perhaps feeling exhausted before it even begins. Saving money on fun things to do might be just the adrenaline rush you need. Here are some great deals to look forward to this week:

A happier happy hour in North Park

Sometimes all you need is a nice cold beer and a hearty plate of appetizers. Of course, you can head to the nearest pub or chain restaurant, or head to Shank & Bone in North Park for a unique dining experience.

From 3 to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, Shank & Bone takes $2 off their entrees and specials. Tickle your taste buds with a mouth-watering roasted bone marrow and banh mi crostini or try their grilled scallops on the half shell. Both pair perfectly with the $5 draft beers. You can also get a Shank & Bone Bowl for $10, but availability is limited, so be sure to get there early. All special offers are on site only.


The third night is the charm at the Z hotel

Touring the city or planning the perfect getaway? Trust us, you’ll need more than two nights to breathe and experience the best of San Diego.

Lucky for you, Hotel Z has a special offer that’s too good to pass up. Book two consecutive nights at Hotel Z on, through December 31, and get your third night free. Yes, free!

Located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Hotel Z is virtually steps away from the city’s best entertainment, attractions and relaxation spots. From the famous San Diego Zoo to the breathtaking beaches of Coronado and La Jolla, enjoy all San Diego has to offer at a price that won’t keep you up at night.

A date on a Tuesday, anyone?

Why wait for the weekend to take someone special on a romantic evening?

Taste Twosday at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in downtown San Diego and discover that you don’t have to wait all week to enjoy a night out.

For $145, you can enjoy a three-course menu for two. Savor two salads, two sides and two desserts of your choice, plus an entrée for two: the Chef’s Reserve, which includes the melt-in-your-mouth 6-ounce filet mignon aged to perfection and a beautifully marbled 28-ounce. Prime Bone-in New York Strip; or the 35-ounce shareable Prime Tomahawk, a delicious classic.

Who says dating has to break the bank? Thank goodness it’s Twosday. Visit
