To travelers, flight deals are always the heat of the moment, but if you’ve been around quite a bit, you also know a good train deal when you see one.

This is the case for Amtrak‘s latest flash sale, which is offering its popular USA Rail Pass valid for 10 rides at a discounted price. Now until Thursday, January 25, you can purchase the pass for $449, which means that every ride will cost you a little short of $45-and there are no blackout dates!

And with the pass, you can pretty much go anywhere, since more than 500 destinations are included. You must, however, use your pass within 120 days of purchase, and within 30 days after travel of the first ride.

Make sure you purchase Amtrak’s USA Rail Pass in the time window selected and visit Amtrak’s website for more information.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
