We've got plenty of stuff on our Free Stuff Friday list! [SUPER SAVER: More free stuff from Super Saver Erin Libranda!]

This weekend, it's free admission to museums, a free beauty service treatment and, of course, free food. And if your name is Ike, there's a big freebie in it for you.

If you love the arts, this is a great weekend for you. Tonight only at the art museum of the University of Houston, the Blaffer Gallery is hosting a free opening reception for its fall exhibitions from 6pm to 8pm. Complimentary drinks will be provided.

On Saturday, it's Houston Museum District day. General admission fees will be waived at 17 participating museums. The museums are open from 10am to 5pm and there will be free buses to shuttle you between the museums.

If you're in the mood for a hearty meal, Spaghetti Warehouse in downtown Houston has a buy-one-get-one free promotion good through Saturday. Buy one entree and one beverage and get another free entrée, but you must have a coupon. Here's a link to that coupon.

Speaking of food, check out Restaurant.com. Right now, gift certificates are 90 percent off. That means a $25 gift certificate is just $1. Not all restaurants participate, but there is a good selection. Be careful to read the fine print as many restaurants exclude alcoholic beverages, weekends and request a minimum purchase.

If you are in the need of a wax at the beauty salon, check out Houston's European Wax Centers. For women, the business is offering a free bikini line, eyebrow, or underarm wax and for the men, eyebrow, ear, or nose wax. No purchase necessary, but you must be a Texas resident.

If your name is Ike, the Sheraton Houston Brookhollow Hotel is giving away free one-night stays during the week of September 13-19. You must show a driver's license or other government-issued ID that says Ike is your first, middle name or last name. The hotel is also offering free hurricanes Saturday night to its guests.

The Sheraton is offering free hurricanes, too. Of course, you must be of legal drinking age to enjoy.
