Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, then you know that Carmageddon is coming.

Don’t have a clue what I’m talking about?

Starting the evening of Friday, July 15th, CalTrans will be closing the 405 freeway from the 10 to the 101 for an entire weekend!

We’re stockpiling supplies and filling up on gas for this man-made disaster (we may be secret hoarders) and now there’s a website with all the discounts and specials you can take advantage of during the shutdown.

The legend of Carmageddon has spread like wildfire on the internet.

There’s at least 2 Twitter accounts and 1 Facebook page devoted to the freeway fiasco.

To help combat the headache head on, some LA locals have built a website highlighting local retail and food/drink deals near the danger zone.

All you have to do is select the region of SoCal that you’ll be traveling in and it shows you all the specials in that area.

So what’s on tap?

$5 Irish Car Bombs and Cadillac Margaritas at Harvelle’s, 10% off all cat and dog services at Malibu Grooming Company, and free yoga and pilates classes at Body Wellness.

However, the most inventive deal we’ve seen has to be from Locanda del Lago.

They’re offering all the items on their Stuzzicchini “Finger Food” Menu for the very appropriate price of $4.05! All you have to do is mention Carmageddon and you’re set.
