UPDATED SINCE FIRST POSTING with a few more food offers…
Albuquerque restaurant deals are coming at you early this Thanksgiving weekend.  Because A) we’re taking time off here at Cheap Central for the holiday – a girl’s gotta find SOME time to clip her coupons, huh? Oh. I’m meant to be cooking? You don’t say! And B) You’re all living on left-overs after Turkey Day anyway.

If we hear of any terrific food deals to add we’ll update this post.  Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a humungous and heart-felt thank you to readers new and old for your support of ABQ on the Cheap!
