Thank God it’s Monday! … said no one, ever. Let’s face it, the day gets about as much love as peak hour commutes and the Orange Creams (don’t @ us) left lurking in the office bickie jar.

The day gets a bad wrap, but one thing Monday does have going for it is sweet dining deals. So if the prospect of a tasty treat to look forward to is all it takes to summon a modicum of enthusiasm for the day (and week) ahead, ‘tis but a small price to pay, if you ask us (literally, these deals are cheap as chips y’all).

NORTH GC

  • The Club at Parkwood: Serving up an absolute, finger lickin’ steal of a dining deal, scrape together some shrapnel and scoot over to The Club at Parkwood to start your week. Every Monday from 5:30pm, smash half price ribs and 69c wings – which are available in four different flavours to rotate between. Do we smell a new weekly ritual? At 76-122 Napper Rd, Parkwood
  • Crafty’s: Noshers that pull off genuine fun for all ages can be hard to come by, and Crafty’s Sports Bar #NailIt every time. And it gets better, because on Monday’s, the ‘nugs and cheese pizzas are on the house! From 11am till late, get any kids meal free when you order a full priced adult meal. So if the fam is in a funk and the week has barely started – get it back on track with six simple words: ‘Kids! We’re going out for dinner!’ Dining kid-free? Score big every Monday with Crafty’s NEW sizzling $20 steak night! Wash it down with their MVP Lager or house wine for $6 (exclusively with the steak offer). At Harbour Town Shopping Centre, 147 Brisbane Road, Biggera Waters

  • Cavill Hotel: Tell Monday to pound sand and get yourself down to Cavill Hotel for a mega parmi, pronto. This Surfers fave has nosh specials going down nightly, and starting your week off with a bang – aka, a heaping, plate-sized portion of Parmi and requisite sides, will only run you $20 bucks (and perhaps your pride, if you can’t finish it).

  • The Island: Goldies offer a different penny-pinching deal for every day of the week – and Mondays are all about getting your pub grub fix on the cheap.
