Just a heads up that the next 25 for $25 dine out promotion starts March 1st, so plan accordingly. It looks like details on the 25 participating restaurants and menus will be posted on the 18th at nwsource.com.

I’ve taken advantage of several of these promotions over the years and I’ve found that it’s really easy to go way over the advertised $25. They tempt you with cocktails, wine and other items from the main menu. If you stick to your guns and just get the three-course meal then it’s a great deal, but otherwise you can end up spending a bundle. The best meal I’ve had so far with this promotion was at Restaurant Zöe, so if they’re on the list this year, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

UPDATE: The next 25 for $25 promotion is gearing up to run from November 1-30, 2005. Details can be found here: http://www.nwsource.com
