Each year during the holiday season, grocery stores will offer free or reduced price turkeys (when you buy a certain dollar amount). Many specials are beginning to hit the weekly store circulars this week.This is always a welcome opportunity for anyone planning a dinner with family and friends. A Thanksgiving dinner with all the “fixins” can be a budget breaker, especially this year. Safeway and Nob Hill are offering turkey specials as well as the usual savings you would get at the local Costco. That will cover you if you are having a big dinner.
What if you are alone or just the two of you this year, however? Do you really want to cook an entire turkey dinner with leftover turkey on the menu for the next two weeks? If not, local Mountain View restaurant Ristorante Don Giovanni, is offering a free turkey dinner.
