Mondays in the City
DVR Gossip Girl and head over to Gansevoort

Monday may not be the most popular night to go out in NYC, but some restaurants around the city are promoting some tempting deals to lure you out of the apartment.

At Vero Wine Bar ordering a glass of wine, beer, or cocktail entitles you to a free panini. Prosciutto, spinach, and sopressata are among the little flat sandwich choices. Doubt a panini will stave off those hunger pains? Head over to Tre to take advantage of bottomless spaghetti, lamb meatballs and all-you-can-drink sangria for only $19, or bring your own bottle of wine with no fee. Bar Blanc Bistro is promoting Moules Frites Monday (aka a bowl of mussels, frites, and a draft beer for $18) while over on Gansevoort Street Macelleria is serving bottomless gnocchi for $12.99.

Unlimited wings at Marfa for $9, all-you-can-eat tacos at Mercadito Cantina for $21, and as much BBQ as you can handle for $25 at Hill Country should cover your Monday night meal cravings. So what about alcohol?

The following spots are offering 50% off bottles off wine:
Accademia de Vino
Parlor Steakhouse
Les Halles

And the only thing better than a bottle of wine for half off is a bottle of wine for free. Paradou will be giving customers a free bottle of wine every Monday until the Dow is back at 12,000, as long as a dinner entrée is purchased. See, recessions aren’t all bad.
