Good morning,

Applebee’s is known for appetizer samplers and a family-friendly atmosphere, but it's also a bar. And in an effort to reinforce the company’s dual purpose, it is offering $1 margaritas during the month of October. A $1 glass of alcohol is enough to make anyone reconsider the notorious half-priced appetizer establishment as a perfect place to pregame their next night out. The deal applies only to regular, lime margaritas on the rocks, and there is an Applebee's located at 547 E State St. Please drink responsibly.
