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.Labor Day sales are everywhere. Though, most are offering the chance to add more stuff to your home rather than serving up a memorable experience. 

Play, a low-cost airline out of Iceland, has a Labor Day sale as well, but it’s a deal that could lead to an adventure you won’t forget. The budget airline is offering 25% off flights to Copenhagen, Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin, Dublin, and Iceland through September 7. 

Though, of course, there is some fine print of which you should take note. The airline that only recently began flying out of the US only flies out of a few US airports. It currently books trips out of Boston (BOS), New York (SWF), and Washington, DC/Baltimore (BWI). Discounted fares can be found on flights taking off this fall and winter. You’ll find the 25% off flights on trips from September through March 2023. 

As with any budget airline, do the math before booking your getaway. The fares pretty much include a seat on the plane and nothing else. Extras–which aren’t always extras on other airlines–carry a separate price tag. That includes luggage, selecting your seat, or getting a meal. 

Nonetheless, if you can fly without the frills, you might be on your way to an impressively cheap flight to somewhere special.Want more Thrillist? Follow us on InstagramTwitterPinterestYouTubeTikTok, and Snapchat.

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.
