From meal deals to spring break sales, there are plenty of wallet-friendly offerings this week in Culver City.
1) $7.99 Daily Special at Samosa House East
This kid-friendly Indian restaurant on the corner of Washington Boulevard and Overland Avenue is a great place to enjoy vegetarian fare in a casual environment. Not only that, but the restaurant also offers a daily special of $7.99 for a complete meal. That includes a combination of three vegetables as well as bread (naan) and rice.
Samosa House East, 10700 Washington Blvd.; (310) 559-6350
2) Discounted Screenings at Culver Plaza Theatres
Taking the whole family to the movies doesn’t have to break the bank – that is, if families are willing to catch movies that have been around for more than a few weeks. Culver Plaza Theatres offers thrifty pricing for its films, charging only $6 for an adult ticket on all shows before 5 p.m. After 5 p.m., that price rises to $8, and children ages 2-12 are $5.50 all day. Just remember to check what’s showing and its rating. Some offerings might not apply to those under age 13.
Culver Plaza Theatres, 9919 Washington Blvd.; (310) 836-5516
3) Combo Specials at Lunch
Sometimes it’s hard to decide exactly what you might want for a midday meal, but Lunch in downtown Culver City has that covered. The restaurant’s daily specials, which run either $7 or $8, offer customers a choice of half-sandwich and soup combos, featuring its signature LT (lettuce and tomato plus choice of protein), half-sandwich and salad combos, as well as a salad and soup combo. From there, all customers have to do is decide.
Lunch, 3829 Main St.; (310) 837-6200
4) $6.95 Special at LaRocco’s Pizzeria
What’s not to love about a restaurant that boasts as its closing time “when we run out of dough”? Turns out, LaRocco’s on Main Street also has a great meal deal. The restaurant, whose owner brought New York-style pizza to Culver City, offers a daily special that includes a slice, a salad (house or Greek) and a soda for $6.95.
LaRocco’s Pizzeria, 3819 Main St.; (310) 837-8345
5) Spring Break Sale at Aéropostale
As the SoCal weather slowly warms up, parents are most likely considering how to outfit the kiddos in wallet-friendly spring attire. Aéropostale, located on the second floor of the Westfield Culver City Mall, is featuring spring break deals that include two tops for $20, as well as a free T-shirt with shorts purchase.
