April 15th — well, 18th this year — is one day it's not just Snoop Dogg that has his mind on his money and his money on his mind.

Whether you're anxiously awaiting a fat, juicy refund or you just cut a check to Uncle Sam, you can still feel free to treat yourself with the tax day deals around town.

For the third year, both Benjy's locations are offering a three-course prix fixe lunch for $10.99. (Dear IRS: Make tax forms three digits for even better deals.) The menu includes Benjy's classics like crunchy chicken, Canadian salmon and Mom's chocolate cake, so we recommend reservations.

You can also find tax form prices in the bar at all three Houston McCormick & Schmick's — Downtown, Uptown Park or Town & Country. Entrees and drink specials are $10.40 all day, plus bar patrons get a $10.40 gift certificate for their next trip.

If you need to celebrate getting your paperwork in at the deadline (or just numb the pain), RA Sushi is extending its normal happy hour from 3 p.m. until 11 p.m. That means 35 sushi rolls and appetizers as well as 30 beers, drinks and cocktails will be selling for between $2 and $7.

P.F. Chang's is also getting in on the deal, offering 15 percent off all dine in or takeout orders on Monday. Should it be 18 percent since that's the due date this year? Maybe, but we're not complaining.
