Delicatessens, hotels, beauty parlors, and even gas stations are offering mid-century discounts on August 15 in honor of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

Amazon Prime Video’s Emmy-winning comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel hasn’t come back for its third season just yet (that's not until later this winter), but the buzz is already building. The comedy follows Midge Maisel, the sharp-witted stand-up comedian busting up audiences while breaking the glass ceiling in the late 1950s club scene. For its previous two seasons, the series has been publicized with multiple stunts nodding to both the show’s New York City roots and its mid-century time period. Building upon moments like the brief return of Carnegie Deli, the city of Los Angeles will get its own shot of nostalgia on Thursday, August 15 via “Maisel Day,” a celebration featuring deals at discounts at 1959 prices from delis, diners, hot dog stands, and ice cream parlors alike.

Aside from the food (see below) even hotels like The Roosevelt and Sportsmen’s Lodge are getting in on the festivities with $40/night rooms. To score those you need to show up to the hotels in person to make a reservation for the one-night-only deal. Additionally, beauty shops like Drybar and are offering $2 blowouts and manicures, admission to comedy shows at the Melrose Improv drops to a dollar, and even a Chevron station in Santa Monica will be selling 30-cent gas. (Check out the full list at MaiselDay.com.)
