If the meal includes a deal....

....accept I may. - "Always True to You (In My Fashion)" from Kiss Me, Kate

So I wanted to pass along some deals that I have found online.

  1. Groupon.com - Each day, Groupon features an unbeatable deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in your city. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, they get discounts you won't find anywhere else. They call it "collective buying power!" Just click "BUY" before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people sign up, they'll charge your card and send you a link to print your Groupon. Once you're charged, you'll receive an email with a link to sign in and print your Groupon. If not enough people join, no one gets it, AND you won't be charged! If interested, shoot me an email (chriscrowthers@gmail.com), and I'll send you a referral. If you subscribe within 72 hours, I get a $10 credit.
  2. Blackboardeats.com - BlackboardEats is a free e-mail and website delivering exclusive deals on restaurants handpicked by seasoned food editors. They also highlight the best food-related specials LA and NY have to offer, including prix fixe discounts, tasting events, weekly dinner bargains and more. I just had 30% off at Marc Forgione (rave review to follow) and a free charcuterie plate from The Vanderbilt in Brooklyn.
  3. Restaurant.com - Restaurant.com is about celebrating the dining experience more affordably. They provide certificates for literally thousands of great restaurants that bring you the fun and pleasure of eating out while spending less. It’s so easy. Just use the search feature to find a restaurant. Many of their participating restaurants have different offers. They provide handy descriptions and even menus to help you decide. Follow the instructions for purchasing a gift certificate and print it out. It's usually $10 for a $25 gift certificate, plus they will email you a promo code for 80% off. So I just paid $2 each for several $25 gift certificates.
If you have any other deals you know about, let me know and I can post. Happy eating!
