Tax Day Relief: Drink Specials and Tax-Free Dining
With the dreaded Tax Day a short three days away, you've probably had it up to here with 1040s, W-9s and 1099s. But on April 15 several Los Angeles restaurants will offer numbers that are sure to bring a smile to your long, stress-stricken face, like 50% off, tax-free and 2-for-1.
A lucky CPA wins a free steak and seafood dinner from Morton's The Steakhouse.
Morton's The Steakhouse
Celebrate filing on time with half-off alcoholic drinks at BLT Steak on Sunset Boulevard. Beer, wine by the glass and specialty cocktails will all be discounted 50% off for this Thursday only.
More drink deals can be found at Santa Monica bar, Copa d'Oro, where the usual 5:30-8pm happy hour menu -- featuring $5 classic cocktails like the Aviation and Manhattan -- will be extended to 2am.
Rush Street in Culver City will feature a variety of drink specials from 5pm to close. After their usual 5-7pm happy hour with $3 wine and well drinks and $4 bottled beer, the bar/restaurant has Skyy ginger cocktails for $5 from 7-8pm and two for the price of one ($8) after 8pm.
Sherman Oaks restaurant, Townhouse Kitchen & Bar, is offering all-day tax-free dining on its entire menu, from the comfort food dishes to the drinks -- choose from 25 wines by the glass, 30 beers on tap and handcrafted cocktails. The happy hours, both 4 to 7pm and later from 11pm to 2am, are tax-free as well.
And of course we cannot forget that CPAs need love, too, this tax season. Morton's The Steakhouse will award one lucky accountant a complimentary steak and seafood dinner for two on April 16. To enter the contest, CPAs can call the Beverly Hills and downtown Los Angeles locations from now until April 14 with their contact information. On the 15th, a winner will be picked at random and notified by phone. The winner will then need to provide a CPA license card, state-issued certificate or business card complete with CPA title.
