Deal of the Day: Presidential Lounge

If you’re currently a student at a UC, you’re probably dreading the next two weeks. But with a little bit of research, I’ve found the perfect place for you to take the edge off and put yourself at ease before diving into finals. The Presidential Lounge is located only 10 minutes away from UCRiverside at the Mission Inn on 3649 Mission Inn Ave. So how ‘presidential’ are their deals? Good enough in this economy.

Happy Hour is from 4:00pm-6:00pm and starts up again from 9:00pm-11:00pm. They close at midnight which is pretty early but with finals just around the corner, you shouldn’t be out late anyways. The Presidential Lounge deal includes:

  • $3.50 Drafts
  • $2 OFF Well Drinks
  • 1/2 OFF Appetizers

It’s pretty small but I like the fact that it’s simple. Also, can you guess what’s featured here? That’s right! MARGARITAS! The Mission Inn Perfect Margarita (12.95) and The Partida Skinny Margarita ($9.50) are the ones you will want to try. They’re a bit pricey but I highly doubt you’ll need to drink much.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is just five days away. The Presidential Lounge will be featuring specialty drinks for this week only including the Apple Shamrock Martini, Peach Irish Kiss, Irish Jack Rose, St. Paddy’s Peach and an Irish Blond Cocktail. You can check out their other specials and lounge hours for the rest of the week on their website. So finish off the day, grab some friends, and head down the street for a great time.

Until next time… Cheers!

Elephant Bar in the Room

While Elephant Bar is known for their amazing food and unfortunately high prices, their Happy Hour menu is something that’s friendly on your wallet. Most places don’t offer a large variety but here we get quite a nice selection. Non-alcholic specialty drinks start at $2.00 while what we really want, alcoholic drinks start at $3.00 and go to only $5.00.

For $3.00, you can get our most recommended drink, the House Margarita. Of course, if you aren’t looking for hard liquor, then a

domestic beer is just a couple words away. Then at $4.00, you can get yourself a nice Mojito or even a Mai Tai. Here, the list gets bigger as far as variety goes. Finally you top it all off with a Long Island or a SKYY infused martini for $5.00.

For the full list of drinks, click HERE.

On that list, you’ll also notice their appetizer specials as well as a Happy Hour Combo. For only $6.50, you get a burger, fries, and a domestic beer. You can upgrade the type of beer you like for $1.00-$2.00 more. Not bad if you ask me. The other great thing is that you aren’t limited to these deals by a certain day. You can enjoy them Monday-Friday from 3:00pm-7:00pm and 9:00pm-CLOSE seven days a week. So head over to 3775 Tyler Street, Suite A, Riverside, CA to get your drink on! But please remember to drink and drive responsibly so don’t get carried away by these low prices!

Until next time… Cheers!

Taco Tuesday…El Torito Style

It would seem I’m a fan of Taco Tuesdays with a side of get-your-drink-on, and that would be right. Some of you may remember a certain post about Taco Tuesdays at Cabo Cantina in Hollywood, which I still highly recommend. Today it’s much closer, at the Riverside Plaza for you UCR students.

What place is it? El Torito! They’ve got dollar tacos from 4-10p.m. and a large selection of drinks for $3 from 2-8p.m. You tell the waiter/waitress how many tacos you want and they bring back a slip with the number printed on them. You get in a buffet style line and you’re given the choice of corn or flour tortillas and you choose between steak, chicken, or carnitas. Past that you have your condiments table, where you can spice up your tacos to your taste. Not bad for a buck a taco!

But tacos are not what we’re all about. You want to have your cake and eat it too right… Well your visit wouldn’t be complete without a few drinks to unwind. Monday through Friday, they have happy hour from 2-8 where their original golden margaritas, well drinks, domestic drafts, and wine are each $3! Maybe you don’t want tacos? Come in any weekday and you’ll still get a good deal on something to snack on while you enjoy your drinks. It’s a win-win, no matter when you come. Otherwise enjoy your drinks and the complimentary chips and salsa.

Alright, so there’s a caveat, and I wouldn’t want to send you in without letting you know. These specials are only available in the cantina section of the restaurant and in the outside area, BUT that’s no problem, though sometimes it will get busy and you’ll have to search for your table. The atmosphere is decidedly better, the rest of the restaurant is a bit on the sad and pathetic side. 😉

Cheers!

Things to Do in Inland Empire

El Torito

Great Thai-ms at Banana Bay

Let’s get out of the Inland Empire tonight and if the title didn’t give it away, Banana Bay is a Thai restaurant located at 18230 Colima Rd in Rowland Heights, CA 91748. I know… that’s a bit a far from my local suggestions but trust me, if you’re a fan of Thai food or want to enjoy a great happy hour, then this is the place for you.

Starting at 10PM-Close (Mon-Thurs: 1AM, Fri-Sat: 2AM), you can enjoy a large assortment of “2 For” deals. Let me give you an example. You can either buy ONE ‘Jack & Coke’ for $5.01 or TWO for $8.20. Yeah, these prices are a little weird but you’re still saving some money per drink and it’s even better if you’re splitting with someone. The “2 For” deals go as low as $7.29 ($5.00 if you want to include Jello Shots) and upwards of $9.11 for a ‘Hello Kitty.’ No idea what that is but it better be worth it. You can see the rest of the deals in the pictures.

No only are their drinks great but their food is amazing! I ordered the Combination Pad See Ew which not only filled me up but left me completely satisfied for being under $9. I gulped it down with a Thai Iced Coffee which was flavored perfectly, not too much coffee and not too sweet. After my meal, my friend and I decided to try a “2 For” deal and settled on the ‘Thai Tea Twister.’

Although it wasn’t bad, it was a bit much after already eating my meal and drinking a Thai Iced Coffee.  It was pretty sweet since it included Baileys, Amaretto, & Kahlua mixed with Thai Tea. Too much of this and you’re in for an awesome hangover. Maybe next time, I’ll order it at the beginning of my meal.

Anyways, if you don’t have plans tonight… get a group of friends together and head out to Rowland Heights. By the way, this place would be perfect for a date. Just a heads up.

Until next time.. Cheers!
