TravelCenters of America, operator of Petro Stopping Centers, has announced it will offer its chicken fried steak at all participating Petro Iron Skillet restaurants across the country for just $5 on Friday in honor of Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day. The day was proclaimed by the Texas Legislature in 2011 in honor of that exceptional dish that elevates the hearty flavor of beef to new heights by coating it in batter and breading and frying it until the ingredients are melded in a blissful union.
From 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. Friday, participating Petro Iron Skillet Restaurants will offer dine-in guests their choice of a chicken fried steak breakfast or dinner for $5. The breakfast chicken fried steak meal is served with two eggs, toast or biscuits and the choice of home fries, hash browns or grits. The dinner option comes with mashed potatoes and gravy.
The local Petro off I-81's Dupont exit is participating in the deal.
It's almost Halloween. On Thursday, round up the wee ones and take them to the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre or the Viewmont Mall in Dickson City for Malloween. All kids 12 and under can come in costume and visit stores that display a Halloween balloon to get candy and goodies. Personalities from Entercom radio stations will be on hand, too. The fun starts at 6 p.m. at both malls.
Congrats to Danielle Lambert, of Albrightsville, who was the winner of the Plum Organics prize offered in last week's column. She was the first to respond correctly that Apple Snapster, Choco Chipster, and Peanutty Pretzel are the varieties of the brand's Crunch'ola product.
Go watch the games at Smokey Bones today and use this coupon for $5 off a $15 purchase: tinyurl.com/9gj8tqa or if your order is a bit bigger, use this one for $10 off a $20 purchase: tinyurl.com/9ahseqd. I recommend the buff-a-que sauce for the wings.
There are coupons totaling $302.49 in today's Times Leader. The best two will get you totally free products with no additional purchase necessary. The first one is for a free individually wrapped El Monterey burrito or chimichanga. They're typically sold in the grocer's freezer for up to $1.29. The other is for a free Pedigree dog food tray up to 60 cents.
If you're the type who doesn't have a loyalty to your pharmacy but you get a regular prescription filled, consider heading to Rite Aid with the prescription and the coupon inside that store's circular that will get you $25 in +Up rewards. You must use your Wellness+ card. The $25 will print out as a coupon on your receipt and can be used for a future store purchase.
While at Rite Aid use the $1 off two Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick items since the brand's deodorants and antiperspirants are buy-one, get-one-free.
