Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 15, 2010 10:30 am

Today is April 15th, a.k.a Tax Day, a.k.a one of the most dreaded days of the year for many Americans.  Here at The Ski Channel, we think that an afternoon on your favorite mountain would help alleviate the stress of today.  Unfortunately, for some, that’s not a reality, so we have some other specials and discounts that could help perk up your day today:

Starbucks: Head over to your local Starbucks with any type of travel mug and you’ll receive a free cup of coffee.  This deal is part of the company’s initiative to get people to go green by switching from paper cups to plastic mugs.

Cinnabon: The cinnamon roll shop is rolling out something new: Cupcakes.  And today, mall-based locations of the store are going to be giving away bite-sized cupcakces between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

MaggieMoo’s: Who can resist free ice cream?  Well, 49 MaggieMoo’s shops are participating in a promotion today that is offering samples of its new ice cream pizza.  The samples will be given out between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

PF Chang’s: The high-end Chinese food chain is offering 15% off food purchases today to those who either dine-in or take-out.

BLT Restaurants: Alcohol can help take the sting out of Tax Day, so all cocktails, beer, and wine are 50% of at BLT restaurants today.
