Best Deal This Week: Free Drinks & Half Price Happy Hour at Not Your Average Joe's

I'm moving this weekend, and haven't started packing. I am the walking definition of procrastination. I am, however, fortunate enough to have plenty of help this weekend with the moving process, including some help from my parents, who are making the trip to Boston on Saturday. My little sister is coming with them, and we are all heading to dinner with Z at some point to relax, catch up and gorge. My dear sister, however, is very picky when it comes to eating. Despite undergoing open heart surgery as a newborn, her favorite foods are limited to macaroni and cheese, chicken fingers, French fries, and cheeseburgers. Knowing all of this, Z suggested taking the family to Not Your Average Joe's. The menu at Not Your Average Joe's is diverse, and it will be easy for the picky eaters, vegetarians and omnivores alike to find something to eat and enjoy.

While I was perusing the restaurant's website to check out the menu, I also came across some pretty great deals that happen throughout the week that I thought was worthy of being this week's Best Deals.

Wine and Beer Tastings: Not Your Average Joe's holds complimentary tastings at their Norwell and Medford locations, featuring Cisco Grey Lady beer and two Nantucket Vineyard wines. The upcoming tastings are August 18 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at both locations.

Half-Price Happy Hour: All of the appetizers and cocktail-sized pizzas are half price from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. every weekday, in the bar area at all of their Massachusetts locations. I'd kill to try their Bacon Blue pizza, made with blue cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, arugula and a balsamic reduction (normally $6.99).

Besides the discounts, Joe's offers another bonus: Summer's Best Fest. Summer's Best Fest includes monthly specials during the summer where Joe's uses locally-grown products and ingredients. For instance, August's local ingredients include watermelon from Harvest Farm, tomatoes from Ward's Farm, fresh mozzarella from Narragansett Creamery, goat cheese from Westfield Farm, plus basil and arugula from numerous local growers. A list of August's specials can be found here.

  1. Another bonus about Joe's is their vegetarian selection. My veggie-loving friends like going here because they have a lot of options for a chain restaurant!
