Dig Inn Has A $5 Friday Special

I wasn’t a huge fan of Dig Inn on Pine (at Pearl) when I ate lunch there after they morphed from The Pump, but I’m sure a fair amount of you eat there when you’re sick of street meat.

They have a new menu designed by “a guy who beat Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America” as their Web site will remind you every chance they get. It also looks sort of bland and unmemorable, but if any of you think I should actually go check it out, let me know in the comments.
