-just got a coupon for 3 on Fourth in in a promotional mailer ($10 off for lunch, $25 for dinner)

    The radio station KLOS is offering restaurant certificates for 1/2 off. It costs $25.00 to get a $50.00 restaurant certificate. They call it "EAT THIS." Every week a different restaurant certificate goes on sale.

      Don't forget about Rubio's $1 fish tacos on Tuesdays (after 2:30pm) - that's a good deal!

        Empress Harbor (Monterey Park): If you get your check before 12 noon, they give you a 20% discount.

        Capital Seafood (Monterey Park): My mom told me that you get your check before 1130 AM, they give you a 20% discount. But I haven't personally verified this, yet.

          HotCoupons.com has some dining offers based on zip code, there's currently one for Buy One Get One breakfast at Marmalade Farmers Market.

          Those mailer coupons can be printed out if you can't find them...at valpak.com

            A bunch of restaurants are offering discounts in celebration of L.A's 225th birthday. It's a little unclear how one goes about getting the discount, I assume you just mention it when ordering. Here's a link:

              Print it out and present it to the restaurant to cash in on the coupon.

                    I just enjoyed Morton's dinner using this coupon, and it was fabulous. So much food... between the two of us, we had 2 salads, a petite filet each with a side of their colossal shrimp for me, crabcakes for him. We also had two sides to share, baked potato with all the fixings and sauteed wild mushroom. You also get two desserts, their chocolate cake which was awesome with all that gooey goodness oozing out, and the key lime pie, which was ok.

                    We had a bottle of wine, and the whole bill came out to 149 with tax (39 bucks was for the wine).

                    It expires late sept, so enjoy the good deal!

                      So happy that it worked out for you. Now, I'm going to have to take advantage of this great deal.

                It's ALL ABOUT getting a KCRW Fringe Benefits Card...really great places, really great deals....you get a guide book too with all the info...just go to KCRW.COM and click on FRINGE BENEFITS and you'l see all the great places that offer deals...the best part is, you wont feel like a "tool" using it since people who enjoy good food, good music, and are members are encouraged to frequent the places that choose to be merchants...you can also get great Yoga, Pilates, Grateful Palate discounts too...the list goes on.
                Last pledge drive, I pledged $75 and got a $50 gift certificate to Silverlake Wine...well worth it!
                Have fun eating your way through the Merchants catalog...I did that last year>

                      i tried to do a search online but couldnt find a page for them. is there anywhere you can see the participating restaurants? is it like the cozmodeck, featuring trendy-ish but not necessarily that great restaurants?

                          I've seen them at the Arclight Theaters and little shops around town, like Illiturature. The list of restaurants is at HungryDeck.com. They also have a new drinking set called Thirsty.

                          The Entertainment book is $20 or less right now (coupons good through November) and has a lot of two for one deals. They have a website. Books for different areas in the county.

                            The"Entertainment Book" is currently on sale for $9.99, because the offers are only valid through Nov. 1, 2007. For that price, it still leaves plenty of time to enjoy the discounts.
