Restaurant deals are everywhere, but we think the carefully curated (to use one of 2012’s favorite words) nature of the A La Card deck sets it apart. One, because the 52 restaurants in it are well chosen to represent the chef-driven places that savvy eaters are already talking about, from high end to barbecue and pizza— no chains, no places you wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot fork. Two, because the deal treats the restaurant fairly— it’s $10 off, which is enough to motivate you to check somewhere new out, not so much that they’ll go broke at it. And $1 from each deck goes to Common Threads. 2013’s deck is in the works, but you can get a deal if you pre-order— either free shipping with your 2013 deck when it ships in November, or a 2012 deck (still valid for 4-1/2 months, after all) free now. And you can get even more of a deal today and tomorrow if you use the code 2013PRE online— 20% off the $30 price. Go here to place your order.
