OK not really a dime. But dinning out can be inexpensive if you look for happy hour specials. Recently, I went to dinner with a friend. She is in the process of buying a home, and I thought maybe she'll appreciate the fact of not spending too much if we go out.
I found this site for great happy hour list near me. So we picked a place that had $0.25 mojitos and decided to meet there. One mojito and we can look for a different place to eat right? No one said you had to buy more.
Unfortunately, the place was no longer there. It was another restaurant,(I really wish people would update that site). So we decide to try the place anyways after looking at their happy hour menu. It turned out to be a gem. We got plenty of really good food (sliders made from beef aged in a Himalayan salt lined cellar, mini lump crab cakes, etc)and drinks. The bill was $26 total, without the tip. $13/person is not bad with alcohol included.
I was so happy about happy hour that I went back to the site and added to the list. I hope they update the thing. If only there were other sites that lists food specials.
