Yup yup.  Just stop by from 3-7, Monday to Friday, and get a $1 off of all beer, liquor, and wine.  Plus, have your pick of some of their best apps for just $5:  chili on the half-shell, our favorite Dino Poutine, or two pork, beef, or burger sliders.  Did you know that people went seriously crazy for the Dino Poutine after our review of Dinosaur Bar-b-que?  We’re not talking just people in Fairfield County…we’re talking in the entire Northeast.  Specifically, when Dinosaur Bar-b-que shared that they would be adding Dino Poutine to all Dinosaur menus after people begged and signed away their first born, they shared our article and a picture of the heavenly dish.  Would you believe that one picture got thousands of views, 173 likes on FB, and tons of comments?  Seriously, how could anyone deny the power of the poutine?  In addition, Dino Stamford will be providing a smaller stash of wings for just $3.95.

Not like you really need another reason, but we just gave you another reason to justify your BBQ addiction.  Yes, you’re welcome. ;)
