10 Free Food Events in November




I love the word Free. I have a family of four so going out for free puts a little pep in my step and makes my wallet smile. I also like the fact that everyone can invite a friend to keep them company without me having to break open the piggy bank. We cannot wait to check out some of these venues this month and so should you I believe you should make time to try new foods and since it is FREE...you have no excuse!
