Celebrate the arrival of spring with a free cup of Italian Ice at Rita’s, the nation’s largest Italian Ice chain. From noon to 10 p.m., each Rita’s guest will receive one free, regular-sized, 10 oz. cup of Italian Ice in the available flavor of their choice!

Alright, so there aren't any stores in New York City, but there are more than a dozen in surrounding areas. Find the closest to you here.

Since this deal isn't easily accessible for everyone, I thought I'd tell you about the 3rd Cask Ale Festival at Chelsea Brewing Company which starts tonight and goes through Sunday. With no cover charge and cheap half/full pints, this is one of the most economical beer festivals you'll ever find. I've been to the first two and had an awesome time... and spent less than $20 while I drank the day away. Check out the details here.

Boys -- while you're filling out your March Madness brackets, we have a cool deal for the girls.

Get 20% Off At Five New York Restaurants

I was never a huge fan of coupons where you can save 5% or even 10% off your meal. It's great to spend $19 instead of $20, but it's not a discount that's going to have any real effect on my finances. Once you get up into the 20% discount range, we can start talking! Here are five NYC eating establishments offering such a discount.

20% off at Supermac (348 7th Avenue)
20% off at Broadway Joe Steakhouse
(315 W. 46th Street)

Rumor has it that Artichoke Basille (328 East 14th Street), my favorite pizza place in Manhattan, is offering $3.00 32-ounce beers on Tuesday. Pair it up with one of their delicious margarita slices and you should be good to go for the evening.

Not satisfied? Grub Street reports that Pizza Gruppo (186 Avenue B) is offering a whole pie and a pitcher of beer for $18 everyday from 5 PM - 7 PM. Do that math. That's two beers and four slices of pizza for $9 a person.

If you're still hungry you can always check out any of the bars that serve FREE pizza with a beer purchase. Alligator Lounge (600 Metropolitan Ave), Alligator Lounge II (113 Franklin Street), Crocodile Lounge (325 E. 14th Street), The Charleston (174 Bedford Avenue).

Pizza Pub (294 3rd Avenue) is also serving a pint and pizza for $5.00. Not too shabby.
