I Can Haz $1 Cheezburger?

I'm sorry, I had to do it. These internet memes, they are taking over my writing. I promise that in person I can and do converse like an adult.

So I wrote about 2 new cheap eats aggregators this week: one's local, and one is national.

First, there was Hubeats, which rounds up meal deals around Boston. (Click to enlarge screen shot) There were a few on here that surprised even me. Five dollar boar chili specials at K.O. Prime, anyone?

I believe Hubeats is where my buddy Christine Liu found the deals we investigated for the second site, 3BuckBites.com, a new spinoff site for Citysearch, where she is the Boston editor.

Our research involved eating tiny grilled cheese sandwiches made with Velveeta at Great Bay, which was charming because Great Bay, a fine establishment famed for its fresh seafood, is not normally known for espousing low prices or artificial cheese products. Luckily, Christine knew the bartender, Jonathan (Christine knows every bartender, ever) so we received an extra plate of $1 tater tots for our trouble, AND a $5 plate of fish tacos. Viva la recession!
