Dinner For Two at a Price You Can Swallow
Every weekday this month, Straub's Fine Grocers in Webster Groves is preparing gourmet dinners for two for take-out and easy microwaving, which make an ideal meal for a movie night at home when the kids are at Grandma's house. This week, $16.99 can purchase a meal of grilled petite beef tenders with a side of Caesar salad and twice baked potatoes (Wednesday night); smoked pork tenderloin with ancho chili jam and sides of twice baked potatoes and cornbread muffins (Thursday); and teriyaki chicken breast with sides of fried rice, Asian vegetables and veggie egg rolls.
Free Kids' Movie Rentals
An ongoing deal for members of the Maplewood Family Video allows children to pick out a couple movies from a designated section for free. Although the offer is extended at multiple Family Video locations, the Maplewood branch offers 400-500 free movies, including Disney classics, newer animated films like The Incredibles and Ice Age and episodes of PBS shows like Arthur and Dora the Explorer.
"You can't get much better deals than that," District Manager Tanya Almerli said.
With two-for-one deals and low prices for new releases, there are many ways to save at Family Video.
"It's very affordable for families," Almerli said. "They can walk out with ten movies for under five bucks."
A Lifesaver for Families with Leaky Basements
Ace Hardware has a special offer on a one-gallon ShopVac for $19.99. Stop by Westlake Ace Hardware in Maplewood from now until Feb. 28 to take advantage of the savings. As weeks' worth of ice and snow finally melt, the ShopVac could come in handy in older homes that have water leakage problems.
Enjoy a Night of Family Fun and Games
Crestwood Elementary School is hosting Family Bingo Night in the cafeteria Friday night. The $2 cost of admission includes prizes and refreshments. For an even sweeter deal, bringing a canned good can save families a dollar on admission. Canned goods benefit Gateway Homeless Services. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and the event begins at 7 p.m.
