If you live an active lifestyle â€” and by active I mean going to restaurants far too often, staying out far too late, and making your after work hours far too happy â€” then Iâ€™m sure you know one word all too well: overdraft. The key is finding tricks, you know, cheap tricks, to beat the system.
We all know Gloria’s has $4 mojitos and margaritas at all times, which is great. However, if you order a regular meal, and get three drinks, you are looking at a $30 tab for what should be a very casual dinner or lunch (I mean you are at Gloriaâ€™s.) Try this out next time: take advantage of the free chips, black beans, and salsa. The black bean dip is actually REALLY good. You donâ€™t need a full meal after all the snacking on chips you will undoubtedly do anyways.
Under the apps on the menu are tamales and pupusas. Gloriaâ€™s tamales are HUGE, and are only $2 each. The pupusas are like a small pancake stuffed with cheese, pork, or both, and are not as heavy as that sounds. Also, $2 for one. Chips, black bean dip, salsa, one tamale, one pupusa, two margs and a mojito equal perfectly full, sometimes almost to full. Oh and the best part, it also only equals about $18 bucks with tip.
Gloria's mojitos: make mine rocks, no salt!
