    La Dolce Vita
    La Dolce Vita has one-buck martinis on from 6 to 9 p.m. in honor of Tax Day? Date? Tuesday, April 15, of course.

    While ornaments might symbolize Christmas and pumpkins Halloween and trees Arbor Day and hearts Valentine's, there's one thing we see oodles of come April 15: dollar signs.

    No mystery there: Under-the-wire tax-filers are queuing up at their local mailbox to mail the necessary forms, and payments, if necessary, before the clock tick-tocks to midnight.

    Which means that a few local restaurants are at the ready with specials that reflect the Tax Day's deep dive into the dollar sign pool. Find a designated driver -- perhaps friend who wrapped up her taxes at the end of January -- and find your perfect April 15 sip. Deals are on the offer at places like...

    La Dolce Vita: It so happens to be the 100th birthday of Beverly Hills this week, and the Italian old-schooler near Santa Monica and Wilshire Boulevards has a 100th martini to mark the occasion. And to give people who've paid their taxes a break: The drink's a buck. You can buy two, between 6 and 9 p.m., on April 15, if you buys some food, too. 

    The Whisper Lounge: The Grove cocktail-y hangout is marking a decade, and, indeed, that translates into 10-cent martinis from 5 to 8 p.m. on April 15. Gotta purchase food, but given that up to two martinis is part of the special, we imagine you'd want to.

    Plan Check Kitchen + Bar: If the mailbox you visit happens to be near the Fairfax District or Little Osaka, then make for this eatery next, which is offering a gin-based Income Tax Day Cocktail ($4.15 is the date-perfect price).
