We’re always looking for the best deals and also really love themed food and drinks. So we thought we would take a look around the Valley and find the best food and drink specials for every day of the week. You can feast on delicious food and drinks and still have enough money left over for a not-sober Uber ride home.
S’mores and Wine
Salut Kitchen Bar is able to bring an atmosphere of sophistication and charm, despite the fact that they are minutes away from the Tempe campus. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t like to play with their food! Every Monday, you can enjoy a bottle of wine and construct your very own s’mores, complete with graham crackers, marshmallows, Hershey’s chocolate and a fire pit for $20. What a sweet deal.

Every Tuesday is an all-day fiesta at Ticoz Latin Kitchen in Phoenix. The tacos are two bucks a pop with choices of Dos Equis-battered tilapia, carne asada, tinga chicken, pork adovada or veggie. You can also get half-off Dos Equis and sangrias or $2 off margaritas. At those prices, you can go into an ultimate taco coma on-the-cheap.

Located down the street from the Downtown campus, the new FEZ location is bringing the party seven days a week but we get especially excited to celebrate hump day with their Kegger Wednesdays. Grab $4 draft beers, $6 chicken fingers and a fry basket. The restaurant is open until midnight on the weekdays and is easily accessible along the light rail. Take a seat on their urban patio and quench your thirst.

DeSoto Central Market is another establishment along the light rail that’s offering up some boozy deals. Every third Thursday of the month, they transform the bar into a 1930s speakeasy. Start the night off with a free swing dance lesson, grab an old fashioned and refuel with delicious eats. You are encouraged to come dressed for the occasion and sip on classic cocktails. Don’t forget to follow them on Twitter to get the password for “nearly 1930s pricing” drinks! DeSoto Central Market, 915 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix, desotocentralmarket.com
Food Truck Fridays
Every Friday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., local food trucks line the parking lot of the Phoenix Public Market to bring you a variety of food like you’ve never seen. Grab some fry bread, jambalaya, pies or hot dogs from these mobile kitchens. The food is reasonably-priced and you’ll never have to wait long for a quality meal. The best part? You can go back for seconds, thirds, fourths…
