Save a few bucks on your meal by jumping into the pool fully clothed. Each person who does will receive 50% off his or her bill.

This casual Westside sports bar keeps the neighborhood crowd coming back thanks to dishes like braised carnitas burritos, wild mushroom and smoked mozzarella pizza, chili glazed wings and bottomless mimosas. They also offer a build-it-yourself Bloody bar offering an ever changing assortment of garnishes such as meats, cheese, vegetables, fruit, egg rolls, and even Twinkies.

Forget all about that, and the fact that Monday is on the way, while the DJ gets the party started with good music.
