Deals of the week

Great live music deals this week:

  • The New American Voices Tour, featuring Texans Rodney Hayden and Drew Kennedy, stops at the Rusty Rudder in Cornelius tonight at 8. It's a free show, and for those who want a preview of the music, a free 6-song download is available here.
  • The Cash Bash is back for a sixth year. For $10, you can see 10 bands -- honoring the late great Johnny Cash -- over two nights this Friday and Saturday at the always rockin' Puckett's Farm Equipment. And PBR cans are always $1.50 at Puckett's.
And speaking of things that are $1.50:
  • The Common House in Plaza Midwood has $1.50 PBR pints and Miller High Life bottles every night.
  • Coors drafts are $1.50 every night at Ed's Tavern.
  • BlackFinn offers a special $1.50 price on its burgers every Wednesday starting at 9 p.m.
Other great ongoing deals:
  • Margaritas are $2 at La Paz Sunday-Tuesday.
  • The Common Market in Plaza Midwood hosts free beer tastings every Wednesday at 6 p.m. (The market's new South End location opened today at 1515 S. Tryon St. They plan to host similar tastings in about a month after they get the kinks of opening a new store out.)
  • Nix Burger & Brew offers an early burger special every day from 4-6 p.m. Burgers are half-price.
  • Arpa hosts a monthly "6+6" event. (They're doing it twice this month, tonight and April 15.) Enjoy six tapas samplings with six wine pairings for $12. Runs from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
