It’s the last day (8/29) to head over here and score an extra 25% off Groupons with code FF25. This is EXCELLENT savings on top of savings!

Here are some of my top picks:

 

Head over here to pick up a BBQ Picnic Package from Can’t Stop Smokin BBQ for $22.50 with code FF25 (a $55.94 value). Note: You must buy the voucher (here’s a link straight to it) then bring it to the restaurant (good at the 2650 East University Drive, Mesa, AZ 85213 location or the 7250 W Chandler Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85226 location).

 Check out what’s included:

 

  • “One pound of beef brisket, tri-tip, pork ribs, or beef ribs
  • One pound of any other meat
  • Two medium sides or three salads of any size
  • One medium cobbler

The restaurant gets great reviews! This sounds much easier than cooking for a Labor Day get together to me (call stores for hours).

 

You could head over here and get a new Senita Club family membership to the Desert Botanical Garden for $55.12 with code FF25 (usually $109)!

Love tacos? Head over here to score a ticket to the Arizona Taco Festival for $6 with code FF25 (code good through  8/29, tickets usually $13.83)! NOTE: I would buy each ticket individually so you get the $2 off every single one (you can use code FF25 up to three times per account).

The festival is happening 10/14 at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

“The Arizona Taco Festival celebrates the Mexican food favorite with a weekend of taco tastings, live entertainment, and interactive events. Each day, more than 50 teams prepare samples of their unique recipes for chicken, beef, pork, or seafood tacos, all competing for cash prizes.

Meanwhile, a special expo on Saturday features more than 100 types of boutique tequila, and live entertainment ranges from lucha libre wrestling to a chihuahua beauty pageant. Other events include chili-pepper-eating contests and live bands playing festive reggae and mariachi sets.”

Enjoy!
