Give Thanks for Wine: On Saturday, November 21, join Jubilation on Lomas and Carlisle for a Thanksgiving wine tasting from 2:00 – 4:00pm. The tasting will be started with Schramsburg Sparkling Rose and end with Antigua dessert wine. Mark your calendar!

Why bake?: Skip a step this Thanksgiving, order a Coldstone Signature Pie instead! For a limited time, get your favorite ice cream pie for only $12.99. Find your nearest Coldstone in the Q!

Bowls, Hair-cut and Food Statement: Now at Jack in the Box, try their new Southwest Chicken Bowl. It’s made with fajita seasoned chicken, veggies and rice, and topped with cheese and a cilantro lime sauce. It’s like a party, in a bowl. Buy the bowl, use the coupon, and get an order of 3 jalapeno poppers for FREE!

Leave the Cookin’ to the Caterers: Instead of cooking all day for that holiday party, get it catered by Boston Market for only $9.99 a person! Just give a 3-hour notice  for delivery, or just 2 hours for pickup! Use this coupon for 15% off if your order is $100 or more!

I Scream for Ice Cream: Thanks to Editor-at-large Ron, here is a sweet (pun intended) coupon for $1.00 off Blue Bunny, Sweet Freedom ice cream.

$5.00 Footlong- Everyone knows about the Subway $5 Footlong deal, but we thought these new footlongs ones were worth a mention! Subway introduced a new chicken cordon bleu melt and chicken marinara melt. Melty ooey-gooeyness, it’s worth $5!

How bout some EVOO?: Nothing screams Rachael Ray like some EVOO! It is always so important in cooking though! Right now at World Market, buy one get one free on select olive oils! Just in time for Thanksgiving, and also, just for general kitchen uses too!

FREE delivery! Just Dine In recently added two new restaurants to its roster, and you’re the one who benefits! Through 11/30/10, use this coupon for free food delivery from Southwest Gift Baskets & Café or Napa Valley Café. That’s a savings of $5! Minimum $20 order. Hot, fresh food to your door. Need we say more?
