Deal of the day . . .

It's one more day before the official weekend, but you need to unwind tonight. Head to Zocalo Restaurant & Tequila Bar (358 W. Ontario St., 312-302-9977), the fancy, yet traditional Mexican eatery in River North where creative Executive Chef Dudley Nieto is blending classic and contemporary preparations of the regional dishes of Mexico.

While you're at it, order their Thursday night special cocktails: the Citrus Cazuela has Milagro citrus tequilas, aguardiente and white wine with grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime juices and a splash of Fresca soda, while the Sangria Roja is a mix of red wine, Presidente brandy, triple sec, mango and guava juices. Both are $5.

Get on it.
