Now these are special events
Corks in South Baltimore gets my vote as the serious restaurant having more (and also more imaginative) special events than any other I know of.
I don't want to list them all, but here are the major ones: ...

* Every Sunday there's a three-course Farmers Market Menu for $30 created from ingredients bought that morning at, you guessed it, the farmers market.
* Tuesdays are half-price wine night, including bottles over $100, as long as you buy dinner.
* On Wednesdays starting in October, there will be an Omakase Menu a la chef Edward Kim. One ingredient, such as scallops or duck breast, will be the basis for four or five courses. The food will be paired with wine, the cost will be $75, and the limit will be 12 guests.
* The Visiting Chef series brings in another local chef who, with Corks chef Levi Briggs, creates a five-course tasting menu that includes both their styles. (Remind me not to eat at the other restaurant that night.) With wine, the cost is $145. The event is limited to 12 guests.
* The last Monday through Thursday of every month, Corks features a Restaurant Week-style menu of three courses for $30 or four for $40.
