By Cooking Panda

Valentine’s Day might be a polarizing holiday, but there’s one thing that we can agree brings everyone together: food. Whether you love V-Day or hate it, you can totally score some sweet deals on Feb. 14 that absolutely won’t break the bank.

So save a little dough and take your BF, GF, BFF, S/O, BGF, GH, DW, another chosen acronym or just yourself out to chow down on the big day of romance. Lucky for you, we’ve scoured the web for the best deals at restaurant chains, courtesy of People Food and Delish.

Auntie Anne’s — Download the My Pretzel Perks app on your mobile device and get a BOGO free heart-shaped pretzel in either original or cinnamon sugar flavors.

California Pizza Kitchen — Craving pizza? On V-Day, you and bae can enjoy an appetizer, two entrees and dessert for just $35. Plus, enter a sweepstakes for a $100 gift card to sweeten the deal even more.

Fogo de Chao — Enjoy a meal for two at the Brazilian eatery and receive a voucher for a complimentary meal of up to $62.95, good through April.

Hooters — You can get a free order of wings! All you need to do is bring in a photo of your ex and destroy said photo on the premises, which is funny because we were planning on doing this anyway.

Macaroni Grill — $24 per person gets you both an appetizer, entree and dessert each. Not bad!

Qdoba — You can get a free entree at this fast-casual food joint — all you need to do is give somebody (anybody, including yourself for some weird reason) a smooch at the cash register.

Shoney’s — Buy anything from their freshly prepared food bar and score a free hot fudge cake.

Schlotzsky’s — Show up to one of their locations nationwide and receive a free 3-ounce bottle of their special hot sauce. No purchase required.

TGI Fridays — Enjoy their half-priced bottles of wine as well as their two-for-$30 deal that gets you two premium entrees and a dessert.

Waffle House — This breakfast chain is turning into a romantic sit-down restaurant for the night, complete with fancy tablecloths and ambient candles. While they aren’t offering any discounts we know of, a date at Waffle House over a fancier place is sure to save you a ton of cash. Make reservations now!

White Castle — The burger joint is doing something similar to Waffle House by offering a sit-down dinner with table service and a special Valentine’s menu. You can also make a reservation to this one, so get moving!

10 Ways To Sweeten Your Tax Day


By Cooking Panda

Tax Day is April 18!

While most people probably wouldn’t punctuate that sentence with an exclamation point, we have a feeling that this year your tax day celebration is going to be a little bit sweeter than usual.

We’ve rounded-up a list of 10 restaurants offering tax-day discounts so you can earn back a little of the hard-earned money you handed over to Uncle Sam in 2016. Just remember to mail your return before you cash in on any of these sweet deals!

  1. Arby’s
    Celebrate tax day by drowning your sorrows in roast beef, no coupon required. This year, Arby’s is offering two Gyros for $6 until April 30, so take your time cashing in on this deal!
  2. Boston Market
    Boston Market is getting punny by offering an individual half-chicken meal with cornbread, two sides, a cookie and a drink for $10.40 (get it?).  The deal is only available April 18, so plan accordingly.
  3. Buca di Beppo
    There’s nothing more comforting than steaming plates of spaghetti, sized to share. Download Buca di Beppo’s Tax-Day coupon and head to your closest restaurant for 18 percent off your entire meal on April 18.
  4. Chili’s
    Nothing screams tax-day relief like an icy mix of tequila and lime.  Head to Chili’s for a $5 Presidente Margarita on April 18.
  5. Great American Cookies
    Satisfy that post-tax sugar craving with a free chocolate chip cookie at all Great American Cookie locations on April 18 — no coupons or promo codes required!
  6. Noodles & Company
    Noodles & Company is offering not one, but two tax-day deals! Order online between April 11 and April 18 and enter the code “TAXDAY” to claim $4 off your order of $10 or more, or come into the restaurant itself to get a free kids meal on April 18 with the purchase of any regular entree (because while your kids may not have to file their own taxes yet, they deserve a “thank you” for all the deductibles they’ve earned you in 2016).
  7. Outback Steakhouse
    Download a coupon from Outback’s website and celebrate tax day in the most American way possible — with a big, juicy steak.  Present the coupon at lunch or dinner on April 18 and receive 15 percent off your check (excluding alcohol, tax and tip).
  8. Red Robin
    Indulge your adventurous side by heading to Red Robin the day after tax day.  On April 19, all customers who order the new Ramen burger will receive a $2.22 discount, and the first 22 college students who enter the restaurant with a valid student ID will have the opportunity to get a Ramen burger and bottomless fries for only $0.22.
  9. Schlotzsky’s
    Sourdough is almost as American as steak, so head to Schlotzsky’s on April 18 for a free Original Sandwich with the purchase of a 32-ounce beverage and a bag of chips.
  10. Sonic
    Last, but not least, Sonic is offering half-price cheeseburgers on April 18. We suggest you celebrate by ordering a large milkshake while you’re at it!
