When I first stumbled upon Sonny Lubick Steakhouse’s Beer & Burger Happy Hour Special a couple of years ago on http://www.todaysdiningdeals.com/, it was $11.99 for a fresh-ground tenderloin steakburger and a pint of beer. In fact, Today’s Dining Deals's website still has it listed at that price. However, after contacting the restaurant via their Faebook page (they responded immediately which I LOVE), I discovered it’s actually $12.50 now. Although the price has slightly increased, I still think it’s a great deal for meal. I also don’t think many people know about it.
It’s been a while since I’ve taken advantage of Sonny’s Happy Hour Specials (a big thanks to my little girl), but to this day, their steakburger is one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. They're just so... juicy! I recall getting fries with my burger the last time I was in, but maybe they don't come with the Happy Hour Special anymore. If you know, comment below and tell me!
Another thing I like about this happy hour deal is that it gives you a chance to eat at Sonny Lubick’s without going broke. The food is great (we were just there for date night on Saturday), but their menu is pretty spendy. I never think to grab a quick bite at the more expensive restaurants downtown after work, but this special reminds me that Sonny’s is a good option.
Aside from the Burger & Brew Special, Sonny’s has some other good Happy Hour offerings. From 4-7 and 9 to close, you can get $6.50 margaritas and martinis, $5.50 premium well drinks, $1 OFF beer (draft & bottled) and wine by the glass.
The next time you’re downtown and craving a burger, instead of heading to one of the more obvious choices, consider heading to Sonny Lubick’s. And although some of the content may need to be updated, I do find that http://www.todaysdiningdeals.com/ is a pretty good resource for Happy Hour specials around town. The site also has a couple decent coupons to print.
If you live in Fort Collins (and even if you don’t), you LOVE the Silver Grill Cafe. You just do! I mean, how could you not? There are so many reasons to love the Silver Grill:
Silver Grill’s food is also affordable. Price is never really going to deter me from eating there if that’s where I want to go, but I just LOVE when they run a coupon! Silver Grill doesn’t run many offers, but once in a while they show up in Valpak, like now.
Right now, Silver Grill is running a couple of weekday specials: A Buy One Get One Lunch FREE and a Buy One Breakfast get a 2nd Breakfast for ½ Price.
This coupon is available in Valpak, but here’s the thing: they don’t mail all of Fort Collins, so you may not have received this coupon in the blue envelope mailed to your house. They also don’t run their coupons on valpak.com, so the only other way to get in on these offers is to physically stop by the Valpak office to pick a coupon up. It’s not the most convenient situation, but the next time you’re on College (near the Light Center), you can stop by and get one.
I used my coupon today for lunch out with my co-worker. I was STARVING and ordered the Rachel, which is a turkey reuben, and it was sooo good. I had every intention of taking a photo of it for this blog post, but I was so hungry that I insta-ate it as soon as our waitress set it down in front of me. My co-worker at least got a pic of her hot chocolate. You can even see me in the background with my arms crossed. I look mad that I didn’t order one for myself!
If you don’t get Valpak delivered to your house and aren’t able to easily make it to the Valpak office to pick up a Silver Grill coupon, contact me through the blog and I’ll see what I can do about sending one to you.
Ok, I have a GREAT Valentine’s Day Gift idea for all the guys out there who are struggling to find a unique gift for their lady friend. If you’re female, you’re still going to want to check this out so you can find a few cool things for yourself.
Trebird is an up-and-coming jewelry business (not local though, sorry) that transforms skateboard scraps into one-of-a-kind earrings, bracelets and necklaces. (Here’s a cool video of the process). Each batch a jewelry is different because each board has its own story. That means each piece is 100% unique. What I like so much about their jewelry is that it is funky and colorful, but not gaudy. Their pieces lend a pop of color to an outfit, and I am constantly oohing and awing over my coworker’s Trebird bracelets and earrings when she wears them to work.
Trebird’s owner is actually the aforementioned co-worker’s friend, which is how I heard about the company. However, Trebird is becoming more and more popular, especially after being featured Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week of Buffalo alongside Jamie Torres of Marc/Ella New York (MENY). They also recently placed second in Valpak’s Dough to Grow contest, where they won money to help grow and expand the business. With all the recent exposure, I expect their popularity will definitely grow.
Anyway, on to the savings! Right now, Trebird is offering a code through their Etsy shop to get FREE shipping on your purchase. Use the code SKATELOVE (will work until Valentine’s Day) to get in on the offer.
Coupon offers are available the date that I post them but may change at any time.
