    Shopping with kids can be a tricky task but easily rewarded on Tuesday afternoons when kids eat free after 5 pm. Demos and tasting stations are great too!

    Try the meals for two. Under $20 for a pre - prepared meal that just needs your oven, doctor it up just the way you like and serve it up at home.

    Don't even think about putting your tortilla soup toppings (chip strips and cheese) in another container to go home with you. They'll weigh it and charge you the salad bar weight price. Annoying!

    When you're eating on the patio, and care to indulge on a glass of wine, it's way cheaper to buy a bottle from inside and split among friends rather than a glass from the cafe.
