Alright… so you’re a server. You work tirelessly late week and weekends to serve annoying customers hell-bent on making you add modifiers to their every dish and accepting 10% tips from cheap-ass tourists. Come Monday, you want a li’l R&R alongside some cheap F&D. Enter industry night: your one in seven shot at getting shit-faced and lard-laced. And Toronto has some awesome Monday night deals that offer up the perfect way to spend those dirty fins you picked up after Sunday brunch cash out…
L’Unita Enoteca – Prezzo Fisso
A paltry 35 bucks will net you a three-course meal consisting of antipasto + primi + pizza or pasta. Add to that no corkage fee and you’ve just found yourself the cure for Manic Mondays.
Drake Hotel – 86’d Mondays
Ivy Knight has long been hosting the hottest Monday night party in town over at The Drake Hotel. Drink specials, awesome event collaborations, and hundreds of your industry colleagues make for a best-in-class industry shindig.
The County General – Half-Price County Cocktails
The crafty cocktails at The County General have their price tags chopped in half on Monday nights. If that’s not enough of a reason to pass by then you’ve a skewed sense of priority, my good friend.
Carbon Bar – Fried Chicken Mondays
Launching in March, the stunning and newly opened Carbon Bar will serve up Fried Chicken Mondays. I don’t typically need a deal to ‘suade me towards ordering some cholesterol-ridden, grease-soaked bird… but it doesn’t hurt.
Ascari Enoteca – Wine Killahs
With half-price bottles of vino, tunes blasting come the stroke of 10pm, and some of the best Italian food this side of the pond, Ascari’s Wine Killahs will nix your disdain for the drudgery that awaits come Tuesday’s dinner service.
Local Kitchen & Wine Bar – Prezzo Fisso
More Prezzo Fisso (sounds fancy but is really just “prix fixe” in pastafarian) fun is to be had Monday nights over at Local Kitchen in Parkdale. Four courses for $40, half-price wines, and no corkage fee… need I say more?
