It’s summer and the living is easy. Local restaurants are making it even easier on your budget to dine out with summer specials. Many places have specials for certain days of the week, some have sunset or early dining prices and one — Cloyde’s Steak & Lobster House — has extended its sunset menu for the whole evening every night of the week. Others have dinners for two that include a bottle of wine, or are offering easy-on-the-wallet lunch and dinner menus.

No deals just clean your tables and powerwash your exteriors once in a while . The waitresses look at you like you have two heads if you want your table wiped down . At the stage the Indian waiter hands you napkins to clean up the last parties mess !
