Is it Thursday Yet? How to Get Over the Mid-week Hump

In midst of the challenges that the new year creates, the mid-week blues should not be one of them. If you could use a boost in your Monday – Wednesday regimen, why not visit OTO to see all they have to offer? They don’t wait until the weekend to bring on the economically tasty food and drink specials. There’s something suited for everyday of the early week. Whether you’re looking for a new spot to spice up your lunch hour, or unwind after a long day, we’ve hunted down some great options to get you through the mid-week hump.   

Mondays: Everyone could use a little reward after completing the first day of the week. Stay away from your kitchen, and head over to The District Lounge. Every Monday,

Bring the work gang down to de-stress after a long day in the office for an evening of relaxing fun. They also offer free pool (Mondays only) and $4.00 shot specials for you and your friends to enjoy.

Cafe Lucca knows the struggle is so real on a Monday. That’s why they invite you to enjoy  50% off ALL bottles of their delicious wine. Pair that with any of their mouthwatering Italian dishes or perhaps a scoop of gelato, you’ll be so happy you did.

Tuesday: So you survived Monday, and now it’s time to celebrate! In our opinion the best way to do this is with tacos!! There are quite a few locations to feed your taco Tuesday craving, but we’re highlighting the best deals in OTO. Watson’s Soda Fountain Cafe
has recently started their taco Tuesday, and it’s definitely worth checking out. Simply take your pick of
$2 chicken or steak, $3 shrimp & fish or $6 lobster. Also, don’t forget to get your $5.00 margarita fix, because what’s Taco Tuesday without Tequila?!

Another recommendation is congregating at Jalapeños Orange for lunch or dinner for truly authentic tasting tacos. With a selection of 5 meat and 2 vegetarian options for only $1.79 each, everyone will surely leave full and satisfied.  

Our post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the very popular Taco Tuesday hosted every week at The District Lounge. There is no limit to their $5.00 ALL YOU CAN EAT street tacos. They are serving up your choice of protein. 4:00PM-11:00PM!

If you’re not feeling tacos this Tuesday, The Streamliner Lounge has a Burger and Beer special that’s pretty hard to pass up. Purchase any craft beer and receive 50% off any gourmet burger. It doesn’t get much better than that! They also kick-off every Monday @Watson's
with a new “Tots of the Week.” We’re talking flavors like Garlic Ham and Cheese,
 Country Fried, and Blue Box Mac & Cheese just to name a few of our past favorites!

Wednesday: You’ve officially made it to “hump day!” Congratulations you’re more than halfway done and there are fewer days to tackle ahead! If you haven’t been out indulging in burgers and tacos, the time has come to treat yourself. Bruxie is known for their comfort foods and on Wednesdays your stomach and wallet will thank you. Every week they switch things up and offer a different chicken and waffle sandwich recipe for only $5.00! With a deal that good, it will be hard to pass up a delicious scoop of Wisconsin frozen custard to top off your meal.C2ZGileUQAAf_ih


Every Wednesday, The District Lounge keeps the fun rolling with their “Cocktails and Karaoke” night. Late night food specials are only the beginning. They’re serving up $4 shot specials and $3 domestic beers just in case you need a little liquid courage before hitting the mic!

So as you can see, there’s plenty waiting to reward you as you finish each day in Old Towne Orange. Before we hand you off to the weekend to hit those happy hours, mark your calendars and try out these Monday -Wednesday hotspots. You’ll have something to look forward to after the weekend ends and the new week begins!
