Newspaper's dining club offers free meals

Everyone likes a free meal - especially in these challenging economic times.

You can find 35 free meals by joining the Echo Press' Dining Club.

The spring/summer 2009 edition of the dining club cards is now available for $20 at the Echo Press office, 225 7th Avenue East in Alexandria.

The cards offer premium discounts of buy one, get one free food offers from 35 area restaurants.

Here are just a few examples: Buy one lunch or dinner at Bug-A-Boo Bay and receive a lunch or dinner of equal value for free; buy a Sunday brunch at the Depot and get one free; buy a burger basket at the Muddy Boot and get one free.

The coupons are good at each of the 35 locations one time. Some restrictions apply; details are printed with the cards.

You'll also have a long time to use the cards - they don't expire until April 30, 2010.
