Restaurant Week

I just heard about this on the news last night.  If you live anywhere in the L.A. (California) area, "Restaurant Week" is a two week period where selected restaurants are offering deep discounts.   This takes place January 25-30, and February 1-6. Meals are at a fixed price and you can go either at lunch or dinner.  There are MANY restaurants to choose from - see this list.  Some of the restaurants included are The Chart House, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Roy's Hawaiian Fusion, Wolfgang Puck's and more.  Sort by dining area and find restaurants in your city!

Free Makeup!

Due to a class action settlement, you may qualify for a free makeup item from certain major department stores (see below) from January 20-January 27, 2009. Taken from the class actions' website, here are the details along with what you can get for free:

"A class member will be eligible to receive, while supplies last, a maximum of ONE free cosmetics product from one of the Manufacturer Defendants from which he or she purchased Department Store Cosmetics during the class period, May 29, 1994 through July 16, 2003, from the list of products below. If a class member has only purchased products, during the class period, from one of the Manufacturer Defendants listed below, then that class member is only entitled to receive a free product from that Manufacturer Defendant. If a class member has purchased products, during the class period, from multiple Manufacturer Defendants, then that class member must choose the ONE free product he or she wishes to claim from one of those Manufacturer Defendants. Again, these products are only available while supplies last, and no rainchecks will be issued. If your store has run out of settlement products from the Manufacturer Defendant(s) from which you have previously purchased Department Store Cosmetics during the class period, then you may claim a product (again, while supplies last) from another Manufacturer Defendant.

The following is a list of the Manufacturer Defendants and their products that will be distributed, while supplies last, through the stores listed above:

Boucheron (USA) Ltd.:
Femme Eau de Toilette (1 ounce/30 ml)

Chanel, Inc.:
Coco Mademoiselle body lotion (3.4 fluid oz)

Disneyland Free Admission on Your Birthday!

Yes, it's true! Disneyland (and all Disney Theme Parks) are now offering free admission on your birthday. However, you DO need to sign up ahead of time online. Here is the link!  You will receive an email 2 weeks ahead of time that you take as your "pass" on your birthday, which you must show at the entrance along with your identification.

If you already have a Disneyland Pass, you are eligible for one of these gifts instead:

A birthday fun card in an amount equal to the price of a 1-Day/1-Park ticket* for you to use on your birthday for select merchandise, recreation, or tour experiences or for Disney's PhotoPass® on-site services at participating locations at Disneyland® Resort; 
A special birthday FASTPASS® ticket+ for certain attractions at the Theme Park you visit on your birthday; 
A 1-Day/1-Park ticket for you to use any time until your next birthday.

*Ticket price at Main Entrance ticket booth. Adults receive card in the amount of an adult ticket; children (ages 3-9) receive card in the amount of a child ticket.  (See their website for all of the fine print)

A single-day theme park ticket is $69 for an adult, so this is a great deal!
