Election Day 2012 Deals: Free Food and Free Drinks in South Florida
Before you hit the bar on Tuesday night to watch the election results roll in (and either toast to victory or drink away defeat, provided this doesn't turn into the ongoing shit-storm some are predicting) why not put a little food in that belly?
A few local restaurants and bars will be rewarding South Florida citizens for getting out the vote by offering free or reduced drinks/munchies on Tuesday. It's a good reason to hold onto that "I Voted" sticker after you exercise your patriotic duty. Here's a few places with Election Day deals.
All South Florida RA Sushi restaurants (there's one in Palm Beach Gardens and one in Pembroke Pines) are giving a free California roll to anyone who wears an "I Voted" sticker and racks up a tab of $10 or more. The deal can't be combined with any other offers and it's only good if you dine in.
Sorrisi at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
Exercise your right to choose between two pizza and beer combos from 3 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. Sample two combos and select your candidate: northeastern smoked lobster and Alfredo pizza with Samuel Adams Boston Lager versus Chicago spicy sausage and peppers pizza paired with Bell's Oberon Ale. You must be 21 or older to participate and a Player's Club member, and you must pre-register on the Seminole Casino Facebook page. Presidential candidate lookalikes will be mingling with the audience and you'll get $5 of Free Play for registering. The winning pair in the election will get a place on the restaurant's menu.
Kapow! Noodle Bar
In recognition of the monstrous amount of money spent on the election by both sides, Kapow in Mizner Park is offering happy hour pricing all day, with $1 Pabst Blue Ribbon, $2 Sapporo, and $3 bar bites. The bar/restaurant will bring in a sound system so people can watch and listen to election coverage while slamming $5 shots of Patron Tequila. The hoopla lasts from 11:30 a.m. to midnight. Wear your "I Voted" sticker and get a free sake shot.
Get a free glass of wine and a choice of one of five salads (priced $15 to $25 each) with the purchase of an entree on Tuesday at Ovenella in Boca Raton. Get the goods by showing your "I Voted" sticker to your server, and know that this deal can't be combined with any other promos.
Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar
After you make the tough (or not so tough) call in the voting booth, get over to Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar in Palm Beach Gardens and choose between a free Cabo margarita or free guacamole appetizer. Wear your "I Voted" sticker and get there between 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Duffy's Sports Grill
It's not technically an Election Day special, but it's definitely keeping in line with the whole patriotic theme: Duffy's Sports Grill locations will be selling red, white, and blue cupcakes for the duration of November. The $1 treats are in honor of Veterans Day on November 12 and 50 cents from each cupcake will benefit Honor Flight. The organization helps American veterans of World War II to visit war memorials in Washington D.C.
