    Default 14 Ways to save on Dinning Out

    1.Slash your everyday expenses. Think one less specialty coffee, soft

    drink and candy bar a week.

    2.Keep your eyes open for new restaurants in town. They typically

    offer grand opening specials.

    3.Check your local newspapers for advertisements of lunch and dinner

    specials, early bird specials; look for coupons, too.

    4.Take advantage of the chambers of commerce and visitors centers --

    even in your own town. You'll find great restaurant discount coupons.

    5.Limit eating lunch out, and try brown bag lunches.

    6.Do lunch instead of dinner. Lunch menus usually offer the same

    entrees as dinner, just smaller portions and a smaller check.

    7.Dine out during the week rather than on the weekends. Often the menu

    prices climb over the weekend.

    perfect for making a show on time or for parents who need to make an

    early night of it.

    11.Share an entrée or stick with the appetizer menu. Many restaurants

    serve portions that are too large for one person to finish.

    12.The markup on alcoholic beverages in restaurants is high. Instead

    of having a drink with dinner, have a glass of wine or some brandy

    after you get home.

    13.Have a candlelight dinner at home, and then go out for coffee and


    14.Instead of eating in a restaurant, order out! It's customary to tip

    a few dollars to the delivery person, but not as much as at a

    restaurant, where the usual tip is 15 to 20 percent.

    Also, go to if you really have to go
