Nothing quite like going over your spending for the year to make you want to rein things in. Or maybe you’re looking down the barrel of a big, fat tax payment. Fortunately a few places around town have some offers this month to help you pinch a few pennies:

~KULETO’S~ in Union Square is celebrating 25 years in business, and to celebrate is offering lunch customers 25% off their total bill this spring. Swing by for some of chef Robert Helstrom’s salumi and handmade pastas from now until April 30th.

~LE P’TIT LAURENT~ in Glen Park is offering a special three-course prix-fixe dinner menu for $20.12, available Sunday through Thursday through April 15th. 699 Chenery St. at Diamond, 415-334-3235.

~AMERICANO~ at Hotel Vitale is offering dining guests half-off bottles of wine Monday through Friday during lunch (11:30am-2:30pm) and dinner (5:30pm-10pm). The offer is available through April 15th.

Don’t forget you can get half-off on all bottles of wine on Tuesday nights at ~CAFÉ DES AMIS~, and now ~LUELLA~ in Russian Hill is offering the same deal.

Also on Russian Hill, this Wednesday April 4th, ~WILLIAM CROSS WINE MERCHANTS~ is hosting a tasting from 6pm-9pm called Tax Relief Wines. The six wines that will be poured are under $25 and scored over 90 points from the Wine Advocate or Wine Spectator. Flight is $15.
