Get More Greens When You Eat Out

Tuesday night is our dining out night. While eating out does not have to be a weekly event for you, if you are going to pick a day, Tuesday should be the day. Fresh fish usually comes in on Tuesdays and Fridays, and a new batch of prepared food is typically made on Tuesdays (see Anthony Bourdain’s article in the New Yorker here).

Regardless of whether you are a foodie, you should always try to make your reservation through Sign up for free and for each reservation you make (and actually show up) OpenTable awards you 100 points. Once you accumulate 2000 points, you receive a $20 check from OpenTable, which you can use at any participating restaurant. That works out to getting $1 back each time you have dinner – not much, but wouldn’t it be great to get $20 off a meal every once in a while?

Note: Some restaurants offer 1000 points for tables booked at odd hours, which is like giving you $10 off your meal.
