Editor’s Note: We know COVID-19 is continuing to impact your travel plans. Should you travel now, be sure to familiarize yourself with the CDC’s latest guidance on domestic and international travel as well as local requirements, protocols, and restrictions for both your destination upon your arrival and your home city upon your return. Be safe out there. Experts have pointed out that the weeks after the holidays are a great time to fly if you’re looking for a deal. Prices drop significantly from one of the most expensive stretches of the year. This year, flights are low compared to where they were around the holidays, but they’re still a bit high for this time of year.

Fortunately, if you’re looking at going to Hawaii, alluring prices are available on flights right now. You can find round-trip fares for as little as $197 headed from the contiguous US to Hawaii. Of course, the lowest prices are for travellers travelling from the west coast, but there are impressive deals from all over the country, including east coast departures for as little as $301.

The low prices aren’t part of any particular sale. You will find low-cost tickets from multiple airlines including United, Hawaiian, Alaska, and American. Those prices can be found by digging around Google Flights for travel in January, February, and March, which is the time frame when most of the low-cost tickets are available.

Here are some of the round-trip flight prices Thrillist dug up on January 4.

Unlike a specific flight sale from a single airline–like this sale on flights to Iceland from Play–there isn’t a set timeline for these prices. The prices can change at any time. So, if the tickets look good to you, it’s worth moving quickly. Then you might be headed somewhere warm to enjoy some of the coldest months of the year.

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.
