While plenty of Twin Cities restaurants staying closed through the cold spell, others are spending today offering deals to lure diners out into the sub-zero weather. Here's a list.

The Sample Room (pictured, above) is watching its thermometer closely, offering a percent-off deal that matches below-zero temps. For example: -21 degrees means 21 percent off the tab.

France 44 (and it's 651 affiliate, the St. Paul Cheese Shop) are pricing all sandwiches at $5.99.

All cupcakes at Nadia Cakes are $2.

Punch Pizza is knocking 25 percent off the price of all pizzas: Dine-in, takeout and par-baked.

Sebastian Joe's is offering 25 percent off all ice cream, whether it's scoops, pints, quarts or sandwiches.

It's a 20-percent-off-everything day at Chez Arnaud. You'll need to say the pass code: "Beat the cold."

D'Amico & Sons is noting the statewide school closings by extending a kids-eat-free deal (for children 10 and under) all day, when an adult buys an entree.

Rye Deli & Bar is offering 20 percent off after 5 p.m.

Common Roots Cafe is continuing this past weekend's 20-percent-off deal through the end of the day today. Go here to claim the offer.
