Two deals from Mimi's Cafe: Free muffins and half-off wine

The 146 restaurants in the Mimi's Cafe chain were made to resemble French country homes. Given that theme, it makes sense from a marketing standpoint that Mimi's is celebrating Bastille Day, a national holiday in France, with its "back by popular demand" Muffin Giveaway.

Here's the deal: Buy breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 14, and receive a free four-pack of muffins while the inventory lasts.

Here's the catch: You need a Facebook account to download the appropriate coupon. Go to The Muffin Giveaway can also be found at, which will link you to that Facebook site.

Here's another deal, with no catch: Mimi's is also sponsoring Wine Wednesday. Show up any time on any Wednesday, order a bottle (not a glass) of wine and pay half price for it. No Facebook. No coupon. No sweat.
