Albuquerque Cheap Eats and Restaurant DealsEnjoy these Albuquerque restaurant deals for the week ahead…

El Pinto still has some seats remaining for their Matanza Dinner with Tobias Rene in concert on Sunday August 25. Tickets are $25 for an all-inclusive menu of horno-cooked pork, roast potatoes, beans, rice, slaw, tortillas, guacamole, queso, chips and salsa. Get $5 off margarita pitchers all evening – that’s something to sing about! The Matanza starts at 4:30 pm and Tobias Rene performs at 6 pm.

30% Off Wine at Farina Alto Pizzeria. According to an email from Farina Alto Pizzeria, you can get 30% off all bottled wines on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings from 4 pm until closing time when you order a full sized pizza. The wine discount runs on those evenings only until October 1. Farina Alto Pizzeria is the young sibling of the popular EDo restaurants Artichoke Cafe and Farina Pizzeria, located at 10721 Montgomery Boulevard NE.

Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse has a fun promo though Sunday August 26. The restaurant is now displaying Jackamoe’s bats on the “Bat Wall” and if you go in to check it out you’ll get 10% off your meal check when you mention the password “The bats have a home!” The offer excludes alcohol. If you’re wondering who Jackamoe is, he’s Jackamoe Buzzell who plays the vintage gangster at Vernon’s, complete with menacing baseball bat. Last year Johnny Depp signed Jackamoe’s bat during a vist to Vernon’s, as you can see in the photos at the fab ABQ site Although Depp has nothing to do with this offer (or indeed any offer – haven’t found a coupon for him yet) you can’t blame me for mentioning him anyway.
