Eat, drink and be scary: five Halloween steals around ASU

Trick or treat yourself to free and discounted food and drink this Halloween

With Halloween creeping up around the corner, there is no better way to get the most out of your costume than using it to score free and discounted treats. 

Some specials have risen from the grave from past years to save students a few dollars, so beware of these five deals at store locations around ASU's Tempe campus.

1) Applebee’s 

The Neighborhood Drink of the Month for October at Applebee’s is called The Dollar Zombie, according to their website. This blue concoction is made of rum, passionfruit and pineapple and garnished with a gummy brain, and is a steal at only $1, but it is not the only themed drink Applebee’s is serving up this Halloween season. 

The Boo Lagoon and Dracula’s Juice are this year’s “Spooky Sips” offered for $6.99 at Applebee’s. Bartenders are mixing these potions for the rest of October, according to the manager of the Applebee's on Elliot Road and Priest Drive, just seven miles away from ASU's Tempe campus. 

2) Chipotle Mexican Grill 

Show off your Halloween costume and score a $4 “boorito” at the Chipotle on Mill Avenue from 4 p.m. to close on Oct. 31, said the location’s manager. This deal does not limit you to a burrito, according to the Chipotle website, you can also get a bowl, salad or order of tacos. 

The “boorito” deal can also be redeemed through the Chipotle app or online using the code “BOORITO.” Take a selfie in your costume at the Chipotle where you score your $4 burrito and post it on your Instagram or Instagram story to be entered into the Chipotle Boorito Contest on Oct. 31.

Don’t forget to tag @chipotle for a chance to win a year of free burritos.
