Ra Sushi is extending its  happy hour next Tuesday to help folks get through the dreaded April 15 tax deadline. 


Tuesday is Tax Day, the deadline to get Uncle Sam what he’s owed.

We’re safely assuming that all of you owed a refund filed a long time ago. But that looming deadline can be a killer.

Here a few ideas to get through it with your sanity — and wallet — in tact.

• Bruegger's Bagels will launch its tax day special Saturday. For $10.40 — get it, 1040 as is the tax form — you can get the popular Big Bagel Bundle, a baker’s dozen fresh made bagels and two tubs of cream cheese. That’s a $3.50 “deduction” — their word, not our’s, but it does fit with the tax theme. The offer is good Saturday through Tuesday, but you have to download and print a coupon off Bruegger’s Bagels Facebook page or sign up for the company’s email club on by Thursday. The eClub is its own reward; Bruegger's will give you a free bagel with cream cheese and other offers throughout the year.

Tucson Bruegger's locations include 1 W. Congress St. downtown, 6165 E. Broadway, 88 W. River Road and 11165 N. La Cañada Drive.

Ra Sushi at La Encantada, 2905 E. Skyline Drive, is extending its happy hour Tuesday until closing. Normally they offer the discounted cocktails, sushi, appetizers and tapas (from $2.75 to $7.75) until 7 p.m.
