It’s not just the weekend, it’s Memorial Day weekend! Please take a moment to remember the veterans.

We know, as journalists, we’re supposed to be unbiased. At least in our reportage. But we have opinions, too — especially when it comes to food. So, forgive our enthusiasm for some of these fabulous food freebies and deals this week.

  • Free warm cookie: Which Wich is offering a coupon good for a free cookie on their Facebook page. Simply purchase any Wich, present the coupon, and voila! Warm, gooey cookie in your hot little hands. Which Wich is relatively new in Albuquerque; located near UNM at 2300 Central SE (Central and Harvard area).
  • Two course lunch for $8.99: OK, we admit it: we love Mimi’s. And now they’re tempting us with this fantastic deal for a two-course lunch for just $8.99. Get your choice of appetizer OR dessert, plus a “Just Enough” entrée. Monday through Friday only; expires 5/27/09.
  • $2 off food delivery: Just Dine In has issued their latest coupon, good for $2 off through 5/31/09. Pamper yourself with food delivery from some great local restaurants like Zea Rotisserie.
  • Half price Marble Brewery beers: Old Town Pizza Parlor lets you get  your pizza and beer fix every Monday on the cheap, when all Marble Brewery beers are offered at $1.90 per pint. Not sure if this deal will be good on Memorial Day, but if so, what could be more patriotic?? Old Town Pizza Parlor is located at 108 Rio Grande Blvd NW, just north of the intersection of Rio Grande and Central. More info: 999-1949.
  • Dollar tapas: Every Thursday and Friday throughout the summer, the Albuquerque Hilton is offering dollar bites in the bar. Your choice of chili cheese fries, two tacos, red chili popcorn, three chicken wings, chips and salsa, or a pair of chicken sliders. A person could fill up fast on just a few bucks!
  • 15% off entire bill: Artichoke Café will spot you 15% off your entire check when you present your ticket stub for a live theatre performance the same night. So, f’rinstance, if you take advantage of the 50% off Cirque le Masque tickets offer, you can use those tix to get 15% off your dinner at Artichoke Café the same night. It makes the whole “dinner and a show” concept so much more affordable!
  • 15% off dinner or lunch: Yummi House Chinese Cuisine has a couple of coupons running. Take 15% off your dinner or lunch check. Simple.
  • Free root beer float: Sunflower Farmers Market on Corrales Rd is offering FREE root beer floats on Saturday, 5/23, from 2:00 – 5:00pm.
  • Free sushi samples: Meanwhile, the other Sunflower Farmers Market (on Lomas) is holding a Super Sushi Sampling today only (Friday, 5/22) from 2:30 – 4:30pm. Mmm. Sushi.

And that’s all the food deals we can stuff into this issue. Enjoy your weekend!
