Comments Off on Village Inn Free Kids Meal

Kids eat free at Village Inn in September 2012, during Village Inn-credible Kids’ Month. I thought my wordplay was bad sometimes… they’re really stretching it!

The Village Inn Kids Eat Free promotion runs on Monday to Friday through September 2012. Kids get to choose a free meal from the kids menu with the purchase of an adult entree. I mentioned this offer in the Food Freebies and Deals post for this week, but in case you missed it, Village Inn fans can consider it a reminder as it’s a great way to save on eating out with the family during the week.

The offer runs through the month of September 2012 at participating Village Inn locations. There are eight Albuquerque Village Inn locations including Rio Rancho, and one in Los Lunas, so call ahead if you want to be sure.  

And don’t forget Village Inn’s ongoing Pie Rush Wednesday today and every Wednesday (at least until we hear otherwise). Get a free slice of pie with a dine-in Village Inn purchase from 10 am to 10 pm on Wednesdays. (The qualifying purchase doesn’t include Early Dinner Deals, or Pick Three Village Inn Special.)

No coupon is needed for either the Kids Eat Free deal or for Pie Rush Wednesday, just the minimum purchase.

Cowboy Barbecue Cookouts

Comments Off on Cowboy Barbecue Cookouts

Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa’s cowboy cookouts in Santa Fe look like a wild west way to spend holiday Sundays this summer 2012.  These are real YeeeeeeeHa! cowboy cookouts on a Santa Fe mesa top with live music and dancing, barbecue and all the fixin’s, and kids eat half price or free depending on age…

I’ve visited this resort property, including a ride up to the mesa top where they hold the cowboy cookout, and it’s a sweet spot with mighty purty views – should be a good vantage point to admire the sunset while kicking up your heels.

The Bishop’s Lodge cowboy cookout includes a full gourmet barbeque catered by the resort’s Las Fuentes Restaurant & Bar, with steaks, ribs, burgers, and brats, plus live country western music and dancing.  The first one is on May 27, 2012.

The price isn’t bad for dinner and entertainment: $39.95 per person, with discounts for seniors ($34.95), under 18’s ($19.95) and it’s free for kids under 5.

These are the summer 2012 dates – book in advance as they can fill fast.  All cookouts start at 6 pm.

  • May 27 at 6 pm for Memorial Day weekend
  • June 17 at 6 pm for Father’s Day weekend
  • July 1 at 6 pm for Independence Day weekend

Where: Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa in Santa Fe

Price:  $39.95 for adults
               $34.95 for seniors
               $19.95 for under 18’s
               Kids under 5 eat free

Spaces are limited and you need to reserve for the Bishop’s Lodge barbecue cookout in advance on (505) 819-4035. Trail rides will also be available as an add-on.

Although Bishop’s Lodge is set is a quiet spot in the Tesuque Valley surrounded by Santa Fe National Forest, it’s only about a 5 minute drive from Santa Fe Plaza. (I’ve timed it!). Here’s the map and directions to Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa.

TGI Friday’s Halloween free appetizer when you go in Halloween costume this weekend through October 31. The free appetizer choice is fried mozzarrella, pot stickers, or crispy green bean fries, at participating locations. Haven’t had chance to call the ABQ TGI Friday’s to see if it’s on board, but they did participate last year.

TGI Friday’s BOGO Free Coupon to get a free entree when you buy one entree and two beverages for dine-in through November 1. It’s one coupon per table, per visit, at participating locations, and check the fine print for some exclusions on promo menus.

You *might* get a freebie at Old Town Pizza Parlor, if you eat fast! For their Halloween Ghost Chile Challenge, customers who order a sausage, cheese, and chile-smothered 10″ pizza (read hot) and eat it ALL up in 20 minutes, get the pizza free! Plus a $20 gift card. Personally I’d rather take my time to enjoy it and just pay for the pizza, but if you’re a fast eater anyway…. the Old Town Pizza Parlor offer runs through November 6.

PF Chang’s 20% Off Online Orders using the promo code: TREAT from tomorrow, October 29 to October 31. They announced the Halloweed deal on their Facebook page, but you don’t need to be a Facebook member to use the PF Chang’s promo code!

Mimi’s Cafe 20% Off Your Check using the coupon on a purchase of minimum $20 dollars. The offer doesn’t apply to alcohol, nor tax and tip, and you can’t use it for gift cards and some promo menu items, otherwise it’s good till November 3.

PF Chang’s Wine Deal Get a third off a bottle of wine all day on Mondays and Tuesdays through the month of November 2011. That’s a third off any bottle of wine! As the cost of vino is always a large part of the check when I dine out with Mr Cheap (because Darling, I hardly eat a thing) I think I’ll be timing a trip there for the wine offer nights!

These Heritage Hotel coupons for their restaurants are all valid to December 30, 2011, so we have plenty of time to take advantage of them, including:

Waffle House Free Waffle using the coupon for dine-in only, until November 11, 2011.

  • $50 certificate (usually $20) now costs $4
  • $100 certificate (usually $40) now costs $8

Bailey’s on the Beach Yoga Deal It’s the last few days to spend $20 at Bailey’s on the Beach and get a voucher for a free yoga session at Hot Yoga Downtown. Eat first, work it off later. I like that! Offer good to the end of October.

Cheap Chicken: How does 5 pieces of chicken, 2 sides, and 2 biscuits sound? How about for only $6.99? Use the Popeyes Chicken Coupon for the San Mateo location, or the Popeyes Coupon for the Coors location. Both are good to December 31, 2011. Or find Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen coupons for another location. It does bother me that they don’t put an apostrophe in *Popeye’s* but it’s a good deal so I’ll forgive them.

Taco Bell Free Chicken Flatbread Sandwich Combo when you buy a $20 gift card.  Plan ahead for holiday gifts and get a freebie!

Landry’s Seafood Free Appetizer with the purchase of two entrees, using the coupon through December 31, 2011. The coupon (scroll down at the link) is good for a free app up to $9.99 and is ONLY valid at the Albuquerque Landry’s Seafood, 5001 Jefferson NE.

IHOP Free Scary Face Pancake for Kids

Comments Off on IHOP Free Scary Face Pancake for Kids

Free IHOP Scary Face PancakeA Halloween treat that’s sweet and scary at the same time, and even better – it’s FREE!

If you missed our mention of this deal before, don’t forget that kids aged 12 and under get a free Scary Face Pancake at IHOP restaurants this Friday October 28, from 7 am to 10 pm.

According to an IHOP media release, it’s part of the No Tricks – Just Treats program to celebrate the Halloween tradition in a “tasty and playful way.”  (Have they SEEN me eating pancakes? There’s nothing playful about it, and it’s pretty scary all on its own. Watch out for the flying syrup! Oh, I forgot. I’m not a child, so I don’t get the freebie, natch!)

Kids design their own Scary Face Pancake, which comes complete with whipped topping and a strawberry nose, plus two mini Oreo cookies and candy corn on the side, so they can do exactly what their parents always told them not to. (ie: Play with their food.)

The deal is for one free IHOP Scary Face Pancake per child aged 12 and under, on dine in only, at participating locations on Friday October 28, 2011, from 7 am to 10 pm.  No purchase is required.

Note: Although this is a nationwide promotion, not all locations may be participating. Call ahead if you want to be sure. Find an Albuquerque IHOP restaurant near you.
