Restaurants doing deals in their business include: Casa B selling three different soups to keep you warm: sancocho, lentil soup , caldo gallego; Ebi Sushi making their spicy Volcano Roll the special for the night; A mescal cocktail called "Fire Walk With Me" at the Independent (in duel honor of Twin Peaks week and Fire & Ice); and a special TBA from El Potro Mexican Grill!
