Today is April 15, the annual deadline to file your income tax returns.
Though there's really no one who actually likes filing taxes (let's face it -- even if you get a refund, the fact that you have to save a shoebox of receipts each year is enough to kill any joy derived from the fact Uncle Same has decided to give you back some of your own money).
The only good thing to come from tax day? The freebies and deals that some restaurants offer as a way to compensate the headache of it all. Here's a list of some of our favorite offers:
and tapas selections ranging from $2.25 to $7.25, plus a wide variety of
beer, wine, sake, and signature cocktails ranging from $3 to $7.
