1)  Use those coupons or gift certificate you have laying around.

2)  Restaurant.com offers up to 90% off gift certificates.

3)  With a date? Order an entree and one appetizer and split the meal. Portions feed 2 easy.

6)  Start the night during Happy Hour!

7)  Complete the birthday card so you receive a free meal on your birthday.

      PF Chang's offers 1/2 price appetizers from 3-6 each weekday evening. The tempura string beans and lettuce wraps can be easily shared. With tax and tip, the bill should be about $13.00 for two. Be sure to tip on the entire price of the appetizers, because the service is never half!
