McDonald’s McRib is Back for a Limited Time!

July 2, 2021

The elusive McRib sandwich has returned to McDonald’s. It pops up occasionally in certain parts of the country, usually during the winter months or around Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years when diners are looking for an inexpensive warm meal. This year’s rumor is that McDonald’s is going to be offering the McRib nationwide for the first time in 15 years!

Walking by my local McDonald’s yesterday, I noticed the posters on the windows proclaiming this most blessed event! This pork patty sandwich with pickles and onions is actually very good and well worth the price which remains under $3 in most locations. In my town, a McRib sandwich only is $2.79 while the Extra Value Meal (sandwich, fries, and a drink) will set you back just $4.79. Again, we rate this to be a good value. If you want “something different” next time you’re at McDonald’s, get your hands on a McRib!

Davanni’s Pizza 35th Anniversary Specials

July 2, 2021

The following promotion was active in previous years but has NOT yet been verified for 2021. As soon as we receive further information, we will update this page. Be sure to check back often!

Anyone who has lived in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota is familiar with Davanni’s. Some of us even remember Pontillo’s, the early predecessor of Davanni’s. Pontillo’s opened their first restaurant back in 1975, at the corner of Cleveland and Grand in St. Paul. The word of Pontillo’s authentic New York style pizza quickly spread and more locations were added. As a teenager growing up in Apple Valley, I spent lots of time at the Bloomington Pontillo’s. It was located on Lyndale Avenue, just north of 98th Street.

The original Pontillo’s opened in Buffalo, New York, back in 1947. As Pontillo’s expanded in the Twin Cities, they needed a name that could be trademarked. Davanti’s means “leader” in Italian. A slight modification produced “Davanni’s”, and the name change became effective on August 15, 1983. Though I have since moved away from Minnesota, a trip home to see family and friends always means a visit to Davanni’s.

To commemorate 35 years of great pizza & hoagies, Davanni’s October Celebration is taking place from Monday, October 4-Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010. It may be their anniversary, but YOU get the deals:

•”35% OFF One Menu Item” coupons: Get a coupon for a 35% discount on one menu item that you can redeem throughout the month of October.

•Davanni’s Daily Trivia: Answer the “Davanni’s Question of the Day”, and get 35 cents off your bill.

•Davanni’s 35TH Anniversary Commemorative Calendars: Buy a beautiful 15-month calendar for only $3.50. Each calendar includes a coupon sheet of 15-monthly “Buy one, get one FREE” coupons.

•Classic Posters: See “vintage” posters, including a poster of the original 1975 Pontillo’s menu.

•Kiddy Placemats: Fill out a special commemorative two-sided kiddy placemat, one side for younger kids and one side for older kids.
