Dad's Day Food Deals

Hooters is featuring a Buy 10 Wings Get 10 Wings Free promotion Sunday. The idea is to share  the wings with the whole family, not to expect dad to be a glutton.

TCBY locations will have a free cup of frozen yogurt for dad on Sunday. 

First Watch will offer dads a free bag of coffee beans if they come in for breakfast on Sunday.

Penn Station Subs will have a Buy One Sub Get a Second Free promotion Sunday, but you must bring the printable coupon from its website.

Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, and Carrabba's Italian Grill are having a gift card bonus, where if you buy dad a $50 gift card, you get an extra $10. 

One caution: the bonus gift card is for your NEXT visit, not your Father's Day visit. 

Ruby Tuesday ups the ante over those restaurants with a $15 bonus if you buy dad a $50 gift card.

PF Chang's participating restaurants will have a free mug of beer for dad with the purchase of a large draft beer.  

Great Father's Day Sales

This is a great weekend to buy dad something many guys love: new tools, especially power tools.

You will find big sales and special endcap promotions all weekend at Home Depot, Lowe's and Sears.

Free day at the Zoo

Many zoos across the country, including the Cincinnati Zoo, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo and Milwaukee County Zoo, will have free admission for dads on Sunday.

So enjoy your Father's Day, don't buy him an ugly tie, and don't waste your money.

Free admission at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium

Dad's get in free at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium this Father's Day during regular admission hours, which are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the last admission at 4 p.m.
