Albuquerque restaurant deals prove that Friday the 13th is lucky for some! There are several food freebies today, and more deals for the week ahead, including Krispy Kreme, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s, Giovanni’s pizza, Relish, Denny’s, and more….

Free Starbucks Refreshers Beverage today, Friday July 13, 2012, from noon to 3 pm at participating locations. No purchase is required for a free tall Starbucks Refreshers beverage, maximum one freebie per person. The drink comes in Very Berry Hibiscus flavor with blackberries, and Cool Lime flavor, and both feature green coffee extract for energy.

Free Chick-fil-A meal for Cow Appreciation Day at all locations on Friday July 13, 2012,  if you show up fully dressed as a cow! Or if you go partially dressed as a cow, such as a cow spotted hat or bandana, you’ll get some kind of free entree item. If you missed my post on this earlier in the week you might be cutting it a bit fine now to make the head to hoof cow outfit, but Chick-fil-A gives you a starter kit for the full Cow Appreciation Day costume.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Deal on Friday July 13 only. To celebrate their 75th anniversary, when you buy one dozen doughnuts you can get another dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for 75 cents. Thanks to reader Amy for sending us the tip!

Whole Foods Cherry Fest on Friday July 13 has cherries on sale at $1.99 per pound for one-day only.  I’ve been eating so many delicious cherries lately, I’ll start looking like one soon. If you want something new to do with cherries, here are some free recipes for cherries including rice salad with cherries and chicken, a cherry crisp, and a crumble-top pie.

50% Off Relish Gourmet Sandwiches, salads and drinks in a limited quantity deal. Pay $8 for $16 worth of Relish food and drinks at either the Menaul Blvd. location or the Rio Rancho location.

Purchase today, and redeem the certificates by October 3, 2012. You can buy one for yourself, and one as a gift.

It’s good timing for Giovanni’s Pizzeria coupons as I saw in New Mexico Business Weekly that USA Today picked Giovanni’s Pizzeria as a best pizza place in New Mexico!
