One of our favorite restaurants has a special on gift cards. You spend fifty dollars and get two ten dollar bonus buck certificates. So, seventy dollars.
The problem is, the bonus bucks have short expiration dates. For a couple of people who go out to a sit down restaurant a couple of time a year, it's tough to do with a time limit.
And you can only use one of the bonus buck certificates per meal. Well, I got two fifty dollar gift cards and four ten dollar bonus buck certificates.
The bonus buck certificates run out today. We have two left. We went to lunch yesterday and used one, which left two. We're going to dinner tonight and will use another one. Which leaves one. We'll just give it to someone there.
The lunch was pretty good. Brian had his eyes set on a burger, but then saw the French dip offering. I got a chicken sandwich, with monterey jack cheese, bacon and avocado. We both got fries. He got the full sandwich. I went with the half sandwich, fries and a salad. We were both full when we left.
We were going to go last week, but Brian couldn't walk. So, that's tough. Last month I had that summer cold from hell. Who feels like eating at a nice place when your head hurts, your nose is constantly running, you cough so hard your ribs hurt and all you want to do is sleep?
This is the second time we've done this. At least this go round, we'll only have one cert left. And now that we know we like their lunch menu, next time, I bet we use every one of them.
