Celebration Time!

Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or exciting life event, there will always be a need for Celebration from time to time.  As I am learning more each day, the key to saving money in any of these events is planning.  This coming Saturday night, my husband and I will be going out to celebrate the fact that I just earned myself a column in the local newspaper, The Bluffton Today.  While this may not seem like an enormous achievement, you would have to know that I began my schooling long ago as a Communication major at East Carolina University.  I have never pursued this avenue before but it has always been a life long dream for me.  So as any good husband would, mine is taking me out for a night on the town to tie one on. 

In keeping with my money saving theme, planning is the key to saving money while dining out and enjoying a good time.  This lovely area of Bluffton and Hilton Head is famous for its' Early Bird Specials, while you need to attend dinner at a particular time of the evening, these are specials not to be missed.  One of my favorite restaurants in the area is Wise Guys, located on Hilton Head Island on Main Street next to Frankie Bones, another yummy restaurant.  Wise Guys offers an Early Bird special that is amazing, which consists of a 3 course dinner for $15 between 4:30pm and 5:30pm daily.  It just so happens that I follow the Wise Guys Facebook page regularly and they are offering a coupon for a Buy One Get One free during the early bird time.  So, for $7.50 each, you and a friend, spouse, or stranger (who am I to judge?) . . . enjoy a 3 course meal served by a wonderfully talented chef.  In addition to this great special, they have happy hour from 5pm to 7pm where bottles of wine are $10 off, and drinks are $1 off.  Chateau St. Michelle Pinot Grigio is a favorite of mine which Wise Guys offers at $26.00 per bottle.  At happy hour, this bottle is only $16.00, since a bottle holds approximately 4 glasses of wine, my husband and I can enjoy a 3 course meal and 2 glasses of wine for $31.00 plus tax.  What a wonderful celebration it is!

Below is the link for Wise Guys and the coupon located on their Facebook page, stop by and get a great meal for a great price:


  1. Great coupon, Danielle. Thanks so much! One question: the coupon says "No copies accepted". If we print from the WG site, including the phrase "Print this page", it should be OK, right?

  2. Yes, absolutely! Hope you have a wonderful dinner!
