Food Freebies & Deals: May 10 – 17, 2013
Albuquerque restaurant and foodie deals for the week ahead…
50% Off Beer, Wine & Chocolate Sensation tickets at the link, for the May 18 event. That brings admission down to $20 for eight chocolate tastings with wine and craft beer pairings. (Maybe don’t plan any strenuous activities straight afterwards!) They’ll have live music too in the fundraiser for The American Lung Association in New Mexico. Regular advance tickets are $40 per person, or $45 on the door, if you don’t snap up the Living Social half price tickets.
Pasión Latin Fusion 50% Off Either pay $8 for $16 worth of food and drink for two people at lunch, or $15 for $30 worth for four at lunch, in a limited time deal from Groupon. Then use the certificates at the Downtown restaurant by September 11.
$8 Off at Outback Steakhouse using the coupon at the link until May 11. You get $8 off when you order two entrees or $4 off the purchase of one entree. The offer is valid for dine-in and curbside take-away at participating Outback locations.
You can also get a free $10 Bonus Card with every $50 purchase of Outback Steakhouse gift cards until June 16, 2013.
Nurses and Teachers Free Entree at Buca di Beppo until May 11. When you show your nurse/teacher ID, you get a free portion of ravioli or baked ziti using the coupon at the link, with no purchase required.
Moms Eat Free at Hooters on Mother’s Day, May 12, although she must be accompanied by one of her “offspring”. I guess that’s a nice way to say kids, especially if you happen to be a kid aged 42. The offer requires a drink purchase, and the freebie is up to a $10 maximum.
Free Glass of Cava for Moms at Los Equipales Restaurant through May 12 with a dinner purchase, no coupon required. They’re located at 4500 Silver Avenue SE.

Use this California Pizza Kitchen coupon for a free Spinach Artichoke Dip until May 14. To get the freebie you need to make a $10 purchase, and the offer is good for one coupon per table.
California Pizza Kitchen is also giving out a Thank You Card Envelope when you pay a visit through June 30. Make sure you get it signed by someone at the restaurant when you collect it, but don’t open the envelope! Take it on your next visit (by July 14), and the server opens it to see what you’ve won. Apparently all envelopes win a prize, ranging from a 10%-50% discount on your meal, to free frozen pizza for a year, to a free trip for two to the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel, California, to a grand prize of $100,000. They’re in ABQ Uptown, 2241 Q Street NE.
Get Half Off Sonic Shakes after 8 pm every day. The deal on the real ice cream shakes at Sonic Drive-Ins runs through summer.
StreetFood Asia 50% Off with the choice to pay either $10 for $20 worth of food and drinks, or (for parties of 4 people or more) pay $18 for $40 worth. Grab the Groupon certificate, and then use it at the Nob Hill restaurant by October 2.
Get a Free Auntie Anne’s Signature Pretzel when you buy any Nuggets or Stix by requesting the coupon at this link. You have to give your email so they can send you the coupon, but they promise it’s for one-time use only and you won’t be added to any mailing list (unless you check the box to opt-in to their Pretzel Perks program).
Half Off Lin’s Grand Buffet in this limited quantity deal to pay $20 for a $40 gift card. The card can be used on multiple visits to the Pan Asian buffet restaurant on Montgomery. Get the deal for a limited time via Albuquerque Groupon – you can buy four per person and four as gifts.
Get a free cup of coffee at Village Inn using this coupon until May 17. At a quick glance, it looks like all Albuquerque Village Inn restaurants are participating in the freebie, but there’s a list at the link. The free coffee coupon can’t be combined with Pie Rush Wednesday or Burger, Fries & Pie promos.
Village Inn Free $5 Bonus Card when you buy a $25 VI gift card for moms, graduates, or whomever the heck you please.
