Being the day before Friday used to be the best thing about Thursday, until cheap eats was born that is.
In the name of saving pennies but still extracting yourself from the couch for a night out pre-weekend, we found a few places to get some cheap grub.
Please hold while we point out that pretty much all Mexican joints on the Gold Coast offer some form of taco Thursday situation which also involved margaritas so double win. There’s a list of those here.
