Sunday through Thursday night, the 5 Spot has a blue plate special that'll cost you the Dow, three decimals to the left. Entrees include meatloaf with mashed potatoes, beef stew, and brats (schedule and details HERE). The special runs while the food lasts, and when it's gone, so is the deal. Early birds, the Dow rate-a-plate starts at 5:00 p.m.
CHOW Foods, which owns the 5 Spot, also has a contest going to guess the Dow Jones average on the anniversary of Black Thursday, October 29. Details are HERE. (Pictures from last week's neighborhood pig roast outside of the 5 Spot, featuring a menu punctuated by the foods of Puerto Rico right now. You may not be able to get that pig, but those tostones alone are worth a trip.)
