Cheap eats #28

Got too keen for Stereo and blew that last paycheck on shredding staples? Did you see Tay-Tay, go cray-cray and spend all your savings on 4 (necessary) shirts, a babe’n tote bag and totally cute kitty ears? (At least you’re set for next Halloween). Or maybe you just got a little too pre-prepared for Christmas, and already have your festive feast goodies sorted. Either way we’ll make sure you aren’t busting out the Christmas cake too soon to survive with this week’s cheap eats. 5 Boroughs | Brisbane CBD This one goes out to those of you with a bite-sized budget but an appetite that leaves friends in awe. The fellas at 5 Boroughs know what it’s like to be a big eater on the broke side of life, and so are serving up their enormous hot dogs for just $9.90 daily from 11am-4pm. And when we say huge, we mean huge. Whether you like a classic dog, or are a fan of all the trimmings, there’s a 5 Boroughs beauty to crush any craving, and save you some moolah to boot. The Fox Hotel | South Brisbane If you’re always keen for a Spanish feed, turn your festive season into a mini fiesta with a deal to suit any dynamic duo. Serving up paella for two and a jug of sangria for just $35 every Thursday, The Fox Hotel has you and your partner in crime covered. If you feel like flying solo (but why would you, fiestas are better with friends!) you can get up close and personal with paella for one and a glass of fruity goodness for just $19. So toddle on over to The Fox this Thursday between 5-10pm and delve into a delicious deal that won’t break the bank. Now, did someone say discount decorations? Words by Araminta McLennan
