Food Freebies & Deals: November 18-25, 2011
Albuquerque restaurant deals this week get us into the holiday mood with gift card deals at Slate Street Cafe, Bailey’s on the Beach, and IHOP. Plus a $99 two night mini-break for two with breakfast and dinner, and plenty of good deals at Starbucks, Denny’s, Subway, Plum Cafe, Coolwater Fusion, Boston Market, Mimi’s Cafe, Pizza Nine and more!
NMTWEETUP Chile Cook-Off This looks great fun for our Twitter friends, on Saturday November 19 from noon to 2 pm. It’s free for the chile cooks to enter the cook-off (and maybe win prizes including a $50 gift certificate to Vernon’s Steakhouse). For those who just want to eat and judge the chile (Mmmm!) they request a donation of at least 5 non-perishable food items for the Roadrunner Food Bank. Expect door prize drawings too and they’ll have a full cash bar. Register in advance and get all the deets for the NMTweetup Chile Cook-Off.
Jubilation Wines & Spirits Thanksgiving Extravaganza on November 19 from 2 -4 pm sounds pretty zippy, with a wine tasting, spirits demo and tasting, and turkey burgers on the grill.

La Veta Inn $99 = 2 night stay with breakfast and a dinner I think this is a great deal and I’ve already bought mine in case they run out! Get two nights for two adults and up to two kids at the artsy La Veta Inn (it’s just over the Colorado border and very beautiful country.) The deal includes continental breakfast, and one three course dinner for two people at their highly regarded Alys Restaurant, including two glass of wine. All that for $99? Kinda crazy. (9.9 % tax will be applied on site, but that’s on the $99 paid, not the full deal value of $316, so tax works out under $10.) The offer via Groupon Getaways is available now/while supplies last, and the stay can be taken through March 31, 2012.
