It’s National Cheesecake Day and participating Cheesecake Factory locations are celebrating by selling all slices of its over 30 flavors of cheesecake for half off the regular price.
Not only that, but if you take a photo of yourself with your cheesecake slice and post it to The Cheesecake Factory‘s Facebook page or Instagram or tweet said photo to #SayCheesecakeContest, you could be eligible to win $4,000 in the Cheesecake restaurant’s Say Cheesecake Contest. In order to be eligible to win, you’ll have to pre-register by July 31st. The top 20 photos will be in a photo gallery where Cheesecake Factory fans will be able to vote on the top one August 4th through 10th. The winner gets the grand prize.
The Cheesecake Factory isn’t the only company celebrating Cheesecake Day by the way. Here are a few other deals worth mentioning:
Taco Bueno is offering a free Cheesecake Chimi (whatever that is) with purchase on July 30 only. You need to say “free Cheesecake Chimi” to get the deal.
McCormick & Schmick’s is offering a free slice of cheesecake when you order an entree priced $25.99 or more on July 30th. Coupon required.
And if you live somewhere in the kingdom of White Castle, you can get a free Cheesecake on a Stick with purchase of a combo (with coupon). As everyone knows, everything tastes better when it’s on a stick.
The Cheap Bastard loves, loves, loves The Bryant Corner Cafe and Bakery in North Seattle for the many specials it has every week. In fact, many of them are mentioned in “The Cheap Bastard’s Guide to Seattle” (currently available in most local bookstores and on Amazon.com) including the $2 lattes on Wednesdays, the half price cookies on Tuesdays, the half priced pastries on Thursdays and the half price homemade bread on Friday.
Now the cafe has notified me that it’s offering two burgers for the price of one tonight and every Thursday night.
Such a deal.
And on a rainy day like today, who really wants to be stuck inside the kitchen cooking anyway?
The Cafe is located at 3118 NE 65th and is open until 9 p.m. today.
Sure, it’s great to go to builds at the Lego Store at Bellevue Square or Alderwood Mall, but they tend to be crowd scenes and they require standing in line for a really long time. Not so here. My son waltzed in at 10 this morning and was done building within 15 minutes. The only other difference between a Lego Store build and Math ‘N’ Stuff is that it’s a do-it-yourself affair here. If you need help, the folks at the store can provide it. Just ask.
This is the second of three such events at the store this summer. The next is planned for August 27th.
I’m told if the store gets enough interest, it could become a regular event.
So, why not show this little independent business some Lego love today and stop on by? When I spoke to them on the phone at 11:30, there were still plenty of Lego Pirates waiting to be built. The pirates are there for the building until 6 p.m. or the supply runs out. (You may want to call before you go.)
Math ‘N’ Stuff is located at 8926 Roosevelt Way NE.
Did I mention this event is free?
Arby’s is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a small gift for its customers: a free jamocha shake, no purchase necessary.
While I’m not exactly sure what flavor jamocha is — is it java? is it mocha? Does she or doesn’t she? Only her beautician know….um er–it appears to be somewhat coffee-related.
Apparently, there’s also a limited supply. If only they’d stop strip-mining them, that wouldn’t be the case, but it is what it is. So, if you want one, you need to download a coupon and hurry on over.
It is Arby’s after all.
Deal good today (July 23) only at participating locations.
Here’s some good news for parents with kids stuck inside because of the rain: Admission to the Woodland Park Zoo is half off today.
The deal is good for half price admissions for up to four people and you’ll need a coupon.
Thanks to Thrifty NW Mom.
Even so, I wanted to let you know that participating locations of The Cheesecake Factory will be celebrating National Cheesecake Day on July 30th and 31st (wait a minute, that’s two days, isn’t it?) by selling cheesecakes for half off. There’s no word whether the sale extends to slices or if it’s just whole cheesecakes.
