If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know what a huge fan I am of Local Dines. You get 50% off at over 90 of the best restaurants in the valley without any restrictions. You can use them for alcohol, you don't have to spend over the face value, etc. They offer "dines dollars" which can be purchased in increments of $10, $25, and $50. So $10 of dines dollars would get your friend $20 at his or her favorite restaurant. If you spend $100 in dines dollars, you get $20 in dines dollars for free. Just so you get how great this is, that's $240 in restaurant money for $100! The restaurants listed are great and include Donovans, Macayos, La Bocca, Jaspers Peak, Lush Burger, Eddie's House, Iruna, The Vig, and many, many more.
