Stadium Sports Bar and Grill Offers Daily Deals

Stadium Sports Bar and Grill seems to want you to keep your money! They not only offer special deals for each day of the week, but they also include half-price appetizers Monday through Friday.

Between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., you can get any of their starters like the Grand Slam Nachos, or Fried Calamari. This weekday deal also includes their Chicken Wings, which you can get tossed in any of their seven sauces like classic buffalo, garlic parmesan, homemade razz habanera, or Korean BBQ.

As for The Stadium's food specials, what you get depends on what day of the week it is. For example, on "Taco Tuesday" you can get three tacos for $3. On Saturdays, you can get a steak tip dinner with vegetables and rice for $8.95. Our personal favorites are Wednesdays, where you can get any of their ten burger types for half the price. The varied selection includes pretty much anything you'd want to put on a sandwich, like the Grand Slam Burger with BBQ sauce, ham, sausage, bacon, fries, onion strings, and cheese. We also love the idea of the Pizza Burger, where two junk foods come together on one plate. We better tell our cholesterol to watch out!

Pamper Your Tummy at Pampano Botaneria

Latin cuisine is all the rage these days and there's no better place to enjoy it than at Pampano Botaneria. The small downstairs brother to Richard Sandoval's Pampano, this smaller, more casual half of the restaurant is the way to go. This dimly lit, romantic setting makes anyone want to hunker down for a feast. The best part of this place is that all menu items are served tapas-style...which means you don't have to pick and choose what you want, you can try everything!

Sapore di Sale is 'Magical'

Okay Magic Mike fans - we know there's lots of you out there - Channing Tatum was spotted at the bar at Da Mikele last week during their weeknight aperitivo hour...and we can't blame him.

The best summer party that doesn't take place on the beach is Sapore di Sale, the summer aperitivo at Da Mikele by Luzzo's. Sapore di Sale, meaning a taste of salt, is a classic Italian tune, perfect for a party.
