The McDonald’s value menu — with its stale apple pie and wan burgers — is no match for the “Dollar Menu” at One Front Street this March.
Every Wednesday through Sunday next month, the five-year-old establishment will entice customers with homemade fruit-infused vodka shots, burger sliders and other specials for $1.
“I’m strapped just like everyone else, so I’m gonna be my number one customer,” said owner Marcelo Pevida. “It’s a bad time for everyone — we’ve changed our menu and our name [from Toro], and we want to get people in here.”
True, you have to buy a little something to get in on the happy hour deal, but on Thursdays, for the price of a beer, you can buy a slider for a $1. On Fridays, the beef kebabs are 100 cents. On Saturdays, order an entree and get one of 18 fruit-infused vodka shots for the same buck.
Bottom line? You’ll end up being buzzed and well-fed for $10. That’s a bailout we can taste.
