They've Got To Be Losing Money.

Last night our Recessionistas group got together, and boy, did we land upon a heck of a deal.

We went to Arooji's in the South Park area of Charlotte where they offer a special deal on Wednesdays from 5-7pm: three glasses of wine and an appetizer for $14.95.

Yes -- you read that right!

And the appetizer?  It was more of a meal.  They bring a standard plate to everyone, and this is it:


Romaine lettuce tossed in a vinaigrette, angel hair pasta, and a crabcake.  Cherry tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese.  It was perfection.  


The "wine tasting" is hardly that -- when I think of a tasting, I think of a 2 ounce pour.  These were glasses of wine, friends.  They started us off with a sauvignon blanc, then moved us to a bordeaux, and then one more red which was a cabernet-merlot blend.  The waiter explained all of the wines to us -- the region they hail from, the color, the taste.

Dinner was delicious and filling, but we decided we had a little more room in our bellies and in our wallets to splurge on dessert.



The restaurant is beautiful on the inside.  How have I not been there before?  This definitely won't be my last time!  Charlotte area bloggers, who's in?

You look SO pretty in that bottom picture! We've been really into finding deals ourselves--one of our favorites that's become almost a weekly occasion, is Stuzzi--a local pizza/Italian restuarant. Monday nights they have $1 margherita pizzas if you sit at the bar! DELICIOUS!
