Tax Relief: The Best Tax Day Deals Around Town

Posted By on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 2:00 PM


Ugh, taxes. Amirite? The only silver lining to tax day being just around the corner -- besides the fact that it will be over for another year, of course -- is that restaurants and bars begin to offer tax season discounts and sometimes freebies in commiseration. The list isn't super-long right now, but we'll keep adding to it as we hear more. Know of a deal we didn't include? Leave a tip in the comments.

Presidio Social Club

No matter whether you got a refund or had to pay up, you deserve a drink for finishing. From now until April 15, the Presidio restaurant and bar is offering up a "Tax Relief Cocktails" menu at the bar and back deck. $15 gets you two house cocktails, and you can add steak and frites to that for $15 more.

Le P'tit Laurent Restaurant

If you need some help recovering from your tax stress, this Glen Park French spot is offering a special "Headache Relief" menu from April 15-30, Sundays through Thursdays, with a two-course prix fixe menu for $10.13. First course options include soup, salad, or escargot in garlic-parsley butter. For mains, you can choose between zucchini ravioli, sauteed bass with mushroom risotto, or six-hour lamb shank with rosemary sauce. Add dessert for an extra $2.13.

AMC Theaters

Admittedly you have to buy a movie ticket (a great excuse to see Jurassic Park 3D!), but once you're in the theater you can get a free small popcorn with this coupon at participating AMC Theaters. We called -- both Van Ness and Metreon locations will honor it.

Chain Restaurants

A few places offer tax specials every year. Cinnabon is giving away free bite-size Cinnabons at participating locations from 6-8 p.m. Arby's has free value-sized curly fries and potato cakes with this coupon. And Chili's has a gratis entree or dessert with entree purchase and coupon.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
