This Week's Deals

Last Saturday I went through my online "deals" accounts, printed out the coupons I've purchased lately and put them all in a pile; it looks like a manuscript. That said, I'm ready to do it all again. Read on for today's deals: Houston Press VOICE Deal of the Day: 50 percent off at Rioja Spanish Tapas ($20 for $40)
