As the recession wears on, most restaurants and bars are wise to the fact that customers are looking for a bargain. Run-of-the mill happy hours and specials have become the norm, but Lime on Larimer Square (1414 Larimer St.) is throwing in a little magic to sweeten the deal.
Give One Year of 5280 for just $16.
Here’s why you should hit up Lime tonight for your libations:Â
Drinks on the table: Thursday nights mean a $5 special on mojitos, which is a nice break from the usual $8 price. The deal lasts from 4 p.m. until the joint closes (at 2 a.m.) and includes flavored mojitos as well as the original. Switch things up with raspberry, peach, mango, and pomegranate.
Tricks up the sleeve: From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight, one of three rotating professional magicians will circulate through the bar and dining room. You could be asked to pick a card, or maybe he’ll just pull a quarter out of your ear.
Bonus: If Lime XS (730 E. 6th Ave.) is closer to home, take advantage of its $5 burritos tonight along with the $5 mojito special. This location isn’t offering a magic show, but you can munch on chicken-, beef-, or carnitas-filled burritos, slathered with red or green chili and topped with melted cheese.
