BlackboardEats was founded in the fall of 2009 by a yahoo.com food editor and the rest is bargain-foodie history. LA Times Daily Dish reported today on some of the fantastic weekly specials that subscribers to the site are hip to, but here are a few more weekly deals around town that may or may not appear on a blackboard near you.
Every Thursday at revamped Hilton Checkers downtown, FOUR rolls out from 4-8pm where you can take advantage of four different hand crafted cocktails and four appetizers paired by Chef Todd Allison. We’re not talking cheap daiquiris and soggy nachos folks. More along the lines of Hudson Valley foie gras sandwiches and Dungeness crab salads with a Haitian Cooler or Dark & Stormy.
A little more to the point, Bottle O’ Wine Wednesday at Must downtown will pair a free appetizer when you order a bottle of vino.
Oak Fire in West Hollywood and Sherman Oaks, best known for pizza pies, has 10 different sliders night every Wednesday for only three bucks and a "penny pitcher" where you buy one pitcher and get the next one for a penny. The clever owners are also making a deal out of Olympic Games. Every time an American wins the gold while you are dinning in the restaurant, Oakfire will offer $5 Gold Medal Pizzas and $2 Olympian Shots. Suddenly, the games are getting more interesting!
