Celebrate mom with FREE gifts and great food

This is a two topic day for me. First, let's talk about some deals you can score on Mother's Day, which is on Sunday, May 12.

At Big Surf Waterpark , moms can get in for free if you bring five non-perishable food items to donate. If you are not a mom, no worries! On May 12, May 18 and May 19, you can bring in five non-perishable food items and get 50% off general admissions.

How about giving mom a personalized, free mug for mother's Day? Yorkphoto.com is offering an 11-ounce mug through June 15. Just head to their website at Yorkphoto.com, place your personalized order and type in the promo code "My Mug" when checking out. You will have to pay for shipping, though, and your mug most likely won't get here by Sunday. So you might want to send mom an "IOU" or give it to dad for Father's Day.

Now for topic number two. Food deals! Today I went to Two Hippie's Beach House on the southeast corner of Fifth Street and Camelback. They have some great deals on food, and it tastes good too! 

They mainly serve Mexican food. A lot of their meats are organic with fresh ingredients, but the best part is some great prices on that food. For example, their buffalo chicken bowl is just $3.99! It's served with organic chicken, cabbage and tomatoes served over beans and rice plus cheese. You can also get a huge burro--about two pounds--for $6. That comes with your choice of meat, and you can choose from beef chili (red or green), chicken, fish or pork.

If you prefer tacos, you can buy three good sized tacos for $6, and with the same meat choices as the burros.  I think it is a good deal for the quality of food and the amount, plus it is a pretty laid back place with a lot of fun interesting things to look at.
