Drink away your sorrows
Cole Durbin, owner of Padre's Modern Mexican in Phoenix, has a twist to his Recession Happy Hour. Anyone who arrives at Padre's with a foreclosure notice can have any drink on the menu.

"I have no problem giving them anything they want," says Durbin, 27. Nobody had taken him up on his offer through its first six weeks. But Arizona ranks third on RealtyTrac's list of leading foreclosure states, so worry abounds.

Padre's plans to roll out new promotions throughout the summer. Up next: free rides to and from the restaurant on Saturday nights for those who might be deterred by $4 gasoline.
