Our Staycation Summer Has Rolled to an Abrupt End.
Today. 8AM. School.
In an Attempt to Make this Summer Special, We Made Dining Out an Event.
Little Mini-Adventures Close to Home.
To Stay Close to the Hospital and Doctors and All-Things Medical.
And On That Front We’re Moving Forward to Getting Well. Yes. Thank You. Sigh.
But, Of Course, Dining Out can get Pricey.
Cooking and Eating At Home is Usually the Cheaper Route to Take.
Ahh, Don’t You Just Love a Good BUT…
What if there was a Way to Dine Out that Costs the Same as Eating at Home?
There Is. You Just Need to Know the Secrets.
Dining Out. Saving Money. Having Fun. In This Order.
And These Secrets Will Work Close to Home or On A Vacation Far Away.
Let’s See How It’s Done.
8 Secrets to Dining Out and Saving Money.
Secret #1. Order Water to Drink. Enough Said.
Secret #2. Kids Order from the Kid’s Menu. Usually a Drink and Dessert are Included.
Secret #3. Share a Plate. Check first to be sure sharing is free and there’s no plate charge.
Secret #4. Order an Appetizer as an Entrée. Or just order appetizers and share.
Secret #5. Meal Price Points Need to be at the Low to Mid-Range off the Menu.
Secret #6. If Anyone in Your Group is Having a Birthday…or is Close to Having a Birthday…Tell the Wait Staff. You Can Usually Get Jubilant Singing and Dancing and a Special Dessert for Free. Everyone Gets to Share.
Secret #7. Dressing Up Puts a Festive Spin on the Meal and Doesn’t Cost Anything.
Secret #8. Discretely Photograph the Food and Give the World Your Unbiased Review.
OK. Secret #8 won’t save any $$$…But it certainly gets the Fun Started at Your Table. 🙂
Remember the Goal is To Share a Meal and Have Fun.
Make It an Adventure.
Without Cooking, Dish Washing, Or Busting Budgets.
Taking Time to Enjoy Being Together.
Being Thankful for These Moments.
And Throwing In Some Magic…No Charge for the Magic.
