(Monday-Thursday during the spring season)[/caption] The spring season ("mud season," as locals call it) in Steamboat  you could say is pretty quiet. Quiet, anyways, as compared to the winter or summer seasons which bring spikes in tourism and second-home owners enjoying their Steamboat properties.  Yes, spring in Steamboat offers a much-needed "breather" to locals, and some great dining deals to boot! Spring in Steamboat is pretty fabulous, actually.  Steamboat's hiking and biking trails may, indeed, be a bit muddy, but they are ripe for the taking, with barely a soul in sight and an influx of wildlife waking up after their winter slumbers.  And with the melting snow, everything is so green, and the rivers are raging - quite a sight!  Combined with the fabulous dining deals at many Steamboat restaurants (a sort of a "thank you" to the locals, and to any tourists who decide to pay Steamboat a visit at this time), you can't beat spring in the 'Boat! Curious what deals are out there?  We've put all we could find in one place for you: Cafe Diva: Date Night Sundays featuring a 3-course menu for $28.95 per person. bistro c.v.: $25 3-course dinner on Sundays and Mondays. Old Town Pub: Thursday is Burger Night - $4.99 burgers!  We can probably safely say this is a true locals' favorite. The Laundry: 10% off food for one, 20% off food for two, 30% off food for three, 40% off food for four, and 50% off food for a party of five or more! Cantina: $1 Taco Night on Tuesdays - enough said! Winona's: Monday's, 1/2-price Bloody Marys and Mimosas; Tuesdays, 2-for-1 breakfasts; Wednesdays, $2.99 waffles. Tap House: Tuesday Wing Night ($33 cent wings) and new 2-4-6-8 menu! Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant: Enjoy great views with rooftop seating and 2-for-1 entrees, Monday - Thursday!
