Now that you have options to find dining discounts, here are some new things to try in the restaurant and food worlds. To help, you can find most of these on one of your new discount sites, so you can save money and dip a toe into new experiences without breaking the bank.
On the Living Social/Groupon sites, try these out:
- The Greek Festival in Boca Raton: From Jan. 23-26, there will be traditional Greek dancing, an international marketplace and lots of Greek food to enjoy at Saint Mark Greek Orthodox Church. This is the fest’s 28th year, and discount tickets – a four-day admission for two – are just $10.
- The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery: Held on Saturdays at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport in West Palm Beach, this entertainment/dinner combo features actors and “food-accompanied mystery and paranoia.” That means it’s an interactive evening that includes a four-course meal, with a prize to whoever comes closest to solving the mystery. The dinner shows are through Feb. 29 only. Discount tickets are $110, which gives two tickets to a show and includes “commemorative merchandise.”
