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 Facebook.com/MimisCafe. The Muffin Giveaway can also be found at www.mimiscafe.com, 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.
