    Happy Hour Deals

    Now that things are calming down with the pandemic, can readers recommend local restaurants with good happy hour deals? A lot of places suspended them for the past 2 years so I'm curious who is offering what.

    Weekend Restaurant Specials

    I'm thinking that there are some restaurants in/around SB that are known for dedicated Friday & Saturday menus.

    Common offerings are fresh fish, prime rib, fried chicken, etc. Mind asking my fellow Edhatters what are the best Friday and Saturday night restaurant specials?

    For me, it's less about the price and more about them being "known" as the place to go for a specific thing those nights.

    Farmer's Market Alternatives

    Are there any local farmer's market alternatives for fresh produce in Santa Barbara County? Ventura and Ojai have provided lists of CSA's, farm stands, or pay-in-advance-then-pickup services at local farms.

    Some farmers are no longer coming to the SB market, because of their own health concerns. For the same reason, some of us can't shop at open markets, either.

    Restaurant Food Delivery Options

    What are your experiences with home food delivery? The only thing I've ever ordered was pizza, but now I'm interested in high quality meals delivered that I don't have to prepare. I want to make a list for myself. So, if you have a list, please share w/contact info. Also, delivery fees and tips? Does the food arrive hot? This is an adventure for me, it's on my 2018 "to do" list. Thanks!

    Good Locally Owned Restaurant

    Edhatters: What suggestions do you have for a smallish restaurant in SB that is locally owned and operated and has a fairly healthy menu? I have some visitors coming to town who want to go somewhere different (they've been to the usual popular places). Two of them are vegetarians and two are meat eaters so a menu with variety would be helpful! Thanks!
