$1 Filet Mignon Sandwiches at Morton’s Steakhouse

Today, to celebrate National Filet Mignon Day, Morton’s The Steakhouse is offering $1 petite filet mignon sandwiches in the bar area of its restaurants. I can’t think of much that sounds better than this deal. Hurry, because the offer is only good for today. Morton’s has 73 locations worldwide so I’m sure you can find one nearby.

Happy National Cheesecake Day!

It’s National Cheesecake Day and what better way to celebrate than chow down on a dessert New York City is famous for. Instead of going to Junior’s or The Cheesecake Factory (note: those two are definitely not on the same playing field), why not check out a cheesecake establishment that’s celebrating its 40th anniversary – Eileen’s Special Cheesecake. (If nothing else, visit their website and turn the volume on your computer up, it’s well worth it.)

Today from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., visit Eileen’s Special Cheesecake to meet Eileen and her family, try the delicious cheesecakes, see how they’re created and enjoy 50% of all cheesecakes. Flavors include Salted Caramel, Oreo Cookie, Strawberry, Bourbon… and more than 30 others!
