While you’re having a great, long Labor Day weekend, restaurant folks are working hard to help you enjoy yourself. Here are some special offerings:
- TooJay’s: Now through Sept. 4, if you print the coupon here you can take $5 off any $20 purchase, whether you eat there or take it home. It’s limited to one coupon per person, so treat yourself. All locations

Some restaurant closings
Brewzzi at 2222 Glades Road has closed. Its Facebook page mentions “a new restaurant concept” opening there this fall, but no details.
Speaking of Brewzzi, after the CityPlace Brewzzi location closed and the space stood vacant for two years, City Tap opened in August 2016. And City Tap just closed last week.
