TUESDAYS ARE A GOOD BOOZE DAYS >>>

Midweek tends to be dangerous territory for restaurants. Empty tables lead to idle wait staff, and as our mother always told us, the devil will find work for idle hands. Frankly, we never saw a problem with the devil finding work for slothful folks. It sounds like a good way to keep unemployment under control. However, listing Satan on your resume as a reference could probably be seen as detrimental in some circles. But restaurant owners don't want waitrons standing around looking for work from Beelzebub, so they tempt folks to stop by with clever promotions.

Toscanos Café and Wine Bar is on it. Each March, the Puyallup valley restaurant gives away thousands of hand-painted martini glasses - with a new glass launched every Tuesday. All diners have to do is order the week's special martini concoction, which happen to be five this week under the title "Peacock Week."

According to hype, "All week long purchase one of our featured cocktails and take home a hand-painted Toscanos Wild Animal martini glass. Each week in March features a new  glass design. Collect the whole set, while supplies last."

Here are the five martini options this week:

Raspberry Attraction $10.95
(Drink 3 of these & the Peacock at the end of the bar
suddenly looks handsome)

Grape Cosmo $9.95
(Favorite cocktail of New York City Peahens)

Peacock Lemon Drop $9.95
(Don't let the color fool you)

Pretty as a Peahen $10.95
(OK, Peahens aren't pretty, but it's a great cocktail)

The Madness Martini $9.95
(Beautiful in it's simplicity. A classic martini made with
Absolut Vodka or Bombay Gin)

Toscanos' goal is to give away 2,500 martini glasses by the end of March. Start drinking!

[Toscanos Café and Wine Bar, lunch, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., 3:30-9:30 p.m. dinner, 437 29th St. NE, Puyallup, 253.864.8600]
