When April rolls around, says Bill Freeman, CEO of McCormick & Schmick's, "we recognize that American taxpayers need a break -- and this year is no exception." To that end, the seafood chain, which has two stores in Denver -- McCormick's Fish House & Bar at 1659 Wazee Street and McCormick & Schmick's at 8100 East Union Avenue -- has extended its yearly tax relief program by a day to give the guys who actually have to prepare your mess of numbers a well-deserved break.
Here's the deal: If you're a professional tax preparer (as opposed to a fraud), you'll be rewarded with a complimentary dessert with any entree purchase, but you'll need to lift your butt out of your office chair and drag it to either McCormick's location in order to take advantage of the deal. In addition, you'll walk out with a $10.40 (get it?) dining certificate in exchange for your business card. "These tax relief events are all about great food, great drinks and a great reason to celebrate the end of what we know is a stressful time of year for many of our guests," says Freeman.
Ain't that the truth.
