Albuquerque restaurant deals for the week ahead include a Burger King weekend special offer, half price Starbucks Frappuccinos, and half off Sonic shakes. We’ve got a shorter than usual Food Freebies & Deals post today as I’m just off to teach a weekend writing seminar.  It’s shorter, but just as sweet!
