This week's Good deal

Name barHere's a few deals -- and others who know about them, for this week.

A few weeks ago, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Perricone's Marketplace & Cafe near Mary Brickell Village in Miami offers all of its pasta dishes for $10 on Thursday night. I was there with friends and ordered the vegetable lasagna, which is usually $15.95. The leftovers turned into my lunch the next day. Two $5 meals? Good deal for sure, especially when accompanied by their fresh bread and a delicious tomato-and olive-oil spread.

At Jungle Island, Florida residents can get a free barbecue lunch with their admission price ($33.12 for adults, including tax) through Aug. 22.

And if you're not a coupon clipper, but do like to shop, I just learned about some sites that do some of the work for you, no scissors required. Courtesy of Gregory Karp at the Allentown Morning Call, I found CouponCabin.com, for thousands of coupon codes for stores you actually go to. GetInvisibleHand.com really is invisible, until you're shopping online and it finds a better deal on something you're thinking of buying.

Happy deal hunting!
