Free movies, food and free goodies for military

HOUSTON This is great time to grab a couple of blankets and enjoy the cooler weather. But first, if you love dining out for lunch or dinner, it pays you to join your favorite restaurant's e-club. You will have to sign up online, but that translates into free food!

Pizza Fino is a new chain of pizza and pasta shops that have just opened in our area. Head to and sign up for their e-club. Within 24 hours, you will receive a coupon for a free small pizza or a dozen free bread sticks sent directly to your in box. You can redeem the coupon for either item, but you must print the email and use your coupon within a week. It's dine-in or take-out only. There are seven Pizza Fino locations, so pick one closest to you and be sure to check your email for other special offers.

If you are a fan of Corner Bakery, then it's worth it to sign up for their e-cafe newsletter. When you sign up you will get coupons for free food from free soups and salads to dessert. When you sign up, within 20 minutes you should get a free coupon for a free cookie.

If you are looking for a fun family activity, head to Discovery Green Saturday for IKEA Houston Screen on the Green. The movie "Toy Story 3" will be on the big screen starting at 7:30pm. Blankets, lawn chairs and picnics are welcome but outside alcohol and glass containers are not allowed.

For those who love to sing out loud, then Saturday night is your night because the movie "Grease" with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John will be shown at the Miller Outdoor Theater. The crowd is encouraged to sing along and dance! The movie starts at 7:30pm.

Save the date for next Friday, November 11. That marks the national holiday recognizing veterans! First up at the Outback Steakhouse, from November 7 - 11, veterans and active duty military are being honored with a free Bloomin' Onion and a soda!

If you are a veteran or service personnel, get your car washed for free next Friday, November 11 at any of the participating car wash businesses in Houston. Blue Waves Express Car Wash, Mister Car Wash and Bubbles Car Wash are just some of the participating businesses. To get your free car wash, all veterans have to do is let the attendant know you are a veteran or in the armed forces.
