Today is Leap Day. It only happens every four years, so you might as well celebrate the extra day. And since so many L.A. restaurants and bars are offering Leap Day deals and specials, you might as well eat up. Here’s a list of some of today’s perks.
Tacos Tu Madre
The Westwood taco window is selling carne asada tacos for just 29 cents, limit one per customer. Which is admittedly weird. Who eats just one taco? 1945 1/2 Westwood Blvd
Souk Shawarma and Sucre Sweets
Downtown’s Souk Shawarma and sister bakeshop Sucre are offering two specials today: get a 4 oz. size of Souk Fries, seasoned with za’atar and served with garlic sauce at Souk, and French madeleine cookies at Sucre for 29 cents. 1111 Wilshire Blvd #104
Leap Day lore says you don’t actually absorb any calories on this extra day (sounds legit), so to honor the notion Doghaus is giving everyone an extra patty. Order any burger and they’ll make it double for you. Various locations
Nick & Stef’s
The Downtown steakhouse does a happy hour every day, but today, they’re extending it until closing time for Leap Day revelers. Classic cocktails like mint juleps and Old Fashioneds are $8, and there are food specials as well. Available on the patio or at the bar. 330 S Hope St.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
From noon to close today, The Coffee Bean is offering 29 percent off of all behind-the-bar drinks. It’s always nice to get your Ice Blended for a little less, no? Various locations
Love & Salt
Leap Day in Manhattan Beach doesn’t sound half bad. At Love & Salt, their offering their Late Night Love menu (usually offered in the last hour of service) starting at 5:30 p.m. tonight. The gist: you can get the two-patty Downlow Burger or any pizza plus a glass of wine or a beer for $20. 317 Manhattan Beach Blvd.
Hard Rock Cafe
If your birthday is today and have ID to prove it, Hard Rock Cafe will feed you for free. They even have something called the Leaplings Eat Free Menu, which includes burgers and sandwiches. That’s roughly .07% of the population, so it’s not exactly a bank-breaker for the chain. 6801 Hollywood Blvd
