Simple Interest: It’s tax time, and the folks at Prosperity Social Club feel your pain


Today, you pay your taxes. Tonight, you weep into your Natty Light. But tomorrow … ah, tomorrow you can head over to Prosperity Social Club (1109 Starkweather, 216-937-1938), Bonnie Flinnner’s cozy Tremont tavern, for the first of a series of Recession Relief Wednesdays, featuring barrel-bottom prices on a wealth of comforting meals. ... The deal is simple: All entrees regularly priced at $12.50 will be discounted to $9.50, every Wednesday night through the end of summer. Currently, that includes the tavern’s beer-battered fish fry (three beer-battered cod filets, hand cut sweet potato fires and coleslaw); baked Parmesan-crusted catfish, with black beans and rice and garlic-roasted tomatoes; grilled salmon filet with sundried tomato-and-mushroom risotto; rosemary roasted chicken, with mac & cheese and veggies; bangers and mash (three banger sausages, sauteed cabbage and mashed potatoes), and pesto-baked ziti, with portabella mushrooms, sundried tomato, and toasted pine nuts, served with a mesclun greens salad. And should you be crafty enough to stop in during Happy Hour, from 4 to 7 p.m., you can wash it down with $3.50 micro brews on tap, $2 domestic bottles, $4.50 house wines, and select cocktails marked down by $2. Prosperity Social Club opens at 4 p. m., Monday through Saturday. Kitchen service runs from 5 p.m. to midnight, Monday and Tuesday, and from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
