Last Tuesday, my husband and I enjoyed a night on our own – the first in over a year since our youngest was born. We stopped by Capital Ale House‘s downtown location, which was unusually slammed with throngs of fireworks-goers.

If you’re a frequenter of Capital Ale, you know their plethora of interesting beers don’t come cheap. That’s why it was a pleasant surprise to discover that this summer, Capital Ale House is offering 1/2 off draft beers, wine by the glass, and liquor every day from 4-7pm. It’s called “Daily 180” because it lasts 180 minutes.

The promotion runs through Labor Day at all Capital Ale House locations.

For a frugal dinner out, go on Monday evening (tonight!) for Burger Night, when half-pound certified angus beef hamburgers, cheeseburgers or black bean burgers are only $2 with any beverage purchase! Additional toppings .50 to $1.00 extra, side of fries $1.99

The Richmond Flying Squirrels and McDonald’s have partnered on “McDonald’s Monday”:

Fans who bring a receipt from a purchase at any of the 69 Richmond-area McDonald’s can redeem it for a free ticket with the purchase of a ticket to any Monday home game at The Diamond in 2012. Additionally, the first 1,000 fans at every Monday home game will receive a rally towel courtesy of McDonald’s.

• Monday, July 9th: 12:05 PM – Reading Phillies (Summer Camp Day)
• Monday, July 16th: 7:05 PM – Altoona Curve (Mark Ballas Appearance)
• Monday, August 20th: 7:05 PM – Bowie Baysox (Nutzy & Zinger Salt and Pepper Shakers Giveaway)
• Monday, August 27th: 7:05 PM – Harrisburg Senators (Greek Night)
• Monday, September 3rd: 12:05 PM – Akron Aeros (Jimmy Buffett Day & Regular Season Home Finale)

Remember, kids can get free tickets for good grades through the “Score an A Program” or if they join the Flying Squirrels Kids Club, they receive free admission to Sunday home games.

Somehow this slipped through my deal radar! I found out about it reading Richmond.com’s Top Five Weekend Events. No worries, there are still 5 of the 8 Monday home games left (and you would not have wanted to be at the stadium for the last one on June 25th, when that HUGE storm system rolled through!)
