I've been impressed with the Blackboard Eats deals this week - a couple days ago there was free lasagna at I Sodi, and today there's a free carafe of wine and mini empanadas at A Casa Fox!

If you're unfamiliar with Blackboard Eats, they orchestrate deals with restaurants across the city and in LA. After joining, you have instant access to their deal for the day. They don't always have deals, and they aren't always free food or drinks - sometimes there's a 20-30% off code for dinner.

The nice difference between this and Groupon (and every Groupon imitator) is that you don't have to spend money upfront. It's an exclusive deals club - you have to make sure you claim your code by the end of the day and use it within 30 days.

When I get a deal I love, I automatically go over to Open Table and make a reservation if the restaurant accepts them. In today's case, A Casa Fox does not accept reservations for tables less than 8.
