We may have all survived the Thundersnow, but we’re still dealing with the Chiberia at the moment. So we know it’s hard to think about leaving the house, but the Weather Channel is predicting that it will get all the way up to 30 degrees (!) this weekend. What this all means is that we’ll probably be all dug out and ready to go by the time the Super Bowl starts on Sunday. Now, if you’re like us and are currently trapped on your street, the idea of getting out and socializing is starting to sound pretty good right about now. Luckily, area restaurants are trying a variety of deals to lure you in, along with some great to-go offers. Here are some of our favorites.
