Several local bars and restaurants are offering discounts for affected federal employees.
With the longest government shutdown in US history in effect, federal employees across the country have been without pay or furloughed.
As a result, several local bars and restaurants are offering discounts for affected federal employees.
Here’s the list; let us know if you find another location to add to the list.

We here at Hotel McCoy were talking about the shutdown, wishing there was something we could do for those going without, when we realized, we do have breakfast every morning & fresh coffee from Exo & local tea from Maya. . . . From 6am-10am, so long as our government is shutdown this round and we have oats, we will offer breakfast to furloughed federal employees and their immediate families. Just show us your federal ID. You'll probably get a hug too. You are appreciated and we are with you. . . . #breakfast #shutdown #shutdownstories #wegotyou #coffee #brunch #federalemployee #arizona #tucson #furlough #humanconnection #giveback #onelove #travelforall #tsa #epa #nationalparks #hotelmccoy

?: Indian Twist lunch buffet (they also have a regular menu). Too many things to name but one of them was butter chicken ? ?. The yellow side dish is mango pudding and the white one is a rice pudding. Really nice atmosphere and one of the best buffets we’ve tried to date. _______________ #foodie#tucson#food#arizona#tucsonarizona#localtucson#dining#breakfast#dinner#lunch#tucsonletseatindianfood#indianfood
