Week 4 + Bonus Date

Eddie drew another date out of the jar this week, and it said “Let’s go get some ice cream!”

Because I had previously signed up for a lot of different restaurant email newsletters, and because my birthday is this week, my inbox has been flooding with freebies!  We happened to have freebies to both Marble Slab Creamery and Cold Stone Creamery, but ultimately we went with Marble Slab.  I had a coupon for BOGO any ice cream creation.  We both splurged and got larges and for just over $5, we both got a delicious treat! 

We also decided to have a bit of a bonus date on ice cream night & went out to dinner because I also had a free entree coupon for Flat Top Grill. 

Flat Top is a build your own stir-fry place, and not only do they offer generous coupons for your birthday, but throughout the year they mail you coupons for free desserts & entrees from time to time!  They also offer a student discount, which saves $5 off the meal!  We each ate a huge bowl of custom stir-fry for just over $12!  It was super good!

This week is my birthday, so I’m sure we’ll have a not-so-cheap date mid-week, then we’ve got a wedding this weekend, so not sure when this week’s date will take place… I’ll be sure to post though!

Cheap Date Tip of the Week: Don’t be afraid to ask about discounts!  Some places will give discounts for being students, military, etc.  You can’t get the discount if you don’t know about it, so just ask!  The worst they can say is that they don’t offer one!
