Happy hour runs from 4 to 7:30 pm on the weekdays at Blue Mesa. From 4 to 6:30 pm, you’ll get to eat from the free quesadilla bar. If you come on the weekend you’ll miss out on the free food, but appetizer plates are 50% off in the bar area from noon to 7:30 pm.

Ferre is an Italian-Tuscan restaurant, located in downtown Fort Worth next to Sundane Square. Join them every Tuesday for their Ferre Pizza Festival, where you can get one free pizza with the purchase of a bottle of wine. If you’re still hungry for more pizza, or don’t feel like buying a bottle of wine, all the pizza is half off.

It’s worth mentioning that these pizzas are your typical pizzeria pies. You won’t find any Meat Lovers specials, but there are margherita, lox and olive pizzas on the menu currently.
