Okay, so money is tight right now, but we can't hole up altogether. I've tried (thought about...?) the frugal lentils-and-quinoa diet and it really makes me crave a burger night out all the more!
Here are a few delish deals: 1/3 off Sushi all day on Tuesdays at T.C.'s Firefly. 2 for 1 entrees every Sunday at the elegant blu in Glen Arbor. And the apropos Po'boy and a Pint for $6.99 all day Wednesday at at Pearl's in Elk Rapids. (I have a hard time deciding between the slow-cooked beef brisket or the buttermilk fried chicken.)
Where else Up north can you eat great on the cheap?
