Use Facebook to your advantage. Follow your local restaurants on Facebook. The more followers they have, it goes to reason, they will be more inclined to do more on Facebook, especially special offers and free meal give aways. Here in Paducah, both of us have won free waffles from Gold Rush Cafe simply by entering the waffle contest they have on Fridays. Sara has won multiple free meals from Whaler's Catch. You may occasionally get a coupon by following one of the chain restaurants but you are far more likely to get something substantial following your local eateries. Supporting the locals are good also because it helps create more jobs and you are more likely to get something homemade which is always better than frozen.
