Dining out can put demands on our wallets these days. A recent feature on My Edmonds News listed out various Happy Hour the offered at many Edmonds locations, a great way to stretch your dollars.
Acting on some advice overheard at a local restaurant; “Look for places frequented by folks of a certain age…” I started paying attention! Our Savvy Seniors know the best spots in Edmonds to save and savor some great meals. Here are some examples:
Arnies Edmonds location leads the way with Early Dinner Favorites, available Sunday through Friday from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm. Three course dinners includes your choice of a starter, entrée and dessert -$19.95. See the website for the entire menu.
Anthony’s HomePort Edmonds Early Bird meals only require that one be seated before 6 p.m. Enjoy an all-inclusive meal for $19.95 and a fantastic view as part of the bargain.
Chanterelle offers “Two Course Happy Hour” dinners ($11.99 each) and nice choice of wines by the glass from $2.99 to $4.99. Prices are available Monday through Saturday from 4-6 PM. Check out their site for entrée choices.
Scott’s Bar and Grille has a unique plan called “Eat. Drink. Earn.” Earn a point dollar spent for food and drink. See Scott’s website for all the details.
PCC Edmonds (and at all their locations) offer members fun classes offering fresh ideas. I just received the Fall 2014 schedule. Don’t snooze if you want to sign up these are popular and for good reason. In each class you receive “Generous” menu samples and a shopping coupon for any PCC location. What a deal!
One of the best-kept secrets for a lovely luncheon at a place with an amazing view is our Edmonds Senior Center. Located at 220 Railroad Ave., right on the Edmonds waterfront, they offer a healthy, hot meal every day from 11:25 a.m. – 12:25 p.m. Most entrees and accompaniments are cooked from scratch. Live entertainment is often provided during meals. Can a proud mom plug her son? Nick Baker volunteers by singing and playing amazing piano almost every Friday during luncheon hours!
One does not have to be a member or be over 60 in age to enjoy the activities at Edmonds Senior Center. Do be an “early bird” to sign up for events like a BBQ on the Beach or the Hawaiian Luau… seating goes quickly! On the first Friday of every month the Edmonds Senior Center hosts a community breakfast for $5. Come and meet your neighbors and enjoy eggs with ham, pancakes and biscuits and gravy!
Visit the website to download the lunch menu, learn of more opportunities to enjoy the facility and possibly to volunteer your time and skills.
The Taste of Edmonds starts today (Friday)! Here’s another opportunity to save on generous portions of the premium fare from our local restaurants’ tasty menus. Festival runs from Aug. 8-10 in Edmonds at the Civic Playfield. Hours: Friday and Saturday 11 a.m to 10 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. You’ll find additional information on entertainment, parking and shuttle service to the venue here.
So many opportunities; how can one resist? Perrinville’s rumored to have a new place, The Hook, a seafood and spirits restaurant opening soon. Close by is Eatery Works, which comes highly recommended… by my trainer at Harbor Square!
Hmmm… I see more cardio workouts or an extra spin class in my future!
Happily pumping away,
