1. Leverage The Happy Hours
It pays to know which restaurants have good happy hour deals. Be picky about your après spots, if they don’t have food & drink specials, don’t bother! Get yourself a plate of wings and a jug of beer for $20 from 3-5pm daily (except Thursdays).
2. Late Night Is Key
Many restaurants have late night specials which kick off after 10 or 11. Going out later can save you time waiting for a table and a few bucks. Check out our 7-11 deal which gets you a shooter and a beer for $7.00 after 11:00pm.
3. Get Yourself A Local’s Card
Many restaurants offer local’s deals and may even have a card that you can flash to get cheap drinks or skip the cover. Both Three Below and Brickworks have local’s cards stashed behind the bar which will score you some deals. Just ask your server!
4. Weekdays Over Weekends
Restaurants in Whistler are usually busy on Friday and Saturday nights so their best specials will be on the weekdays. Go out during the week to save some coin. Three Below has a $15 dinner deal Monday-Thursday and an $18 curry and beer on Wednesdays.
5. When In Doubt – Ask It Out
When you’re trying to save a bit of cash, it never hurts to ask what the specials are and stick to the cheaper options.
