Happy Friday!

Today's tip comes from Anne Raymond:

It's really expensive to eat out but we often go to a Hotel School. The students there learn to be chefs, waiters, butchers, pastry chefs, etc. We get the calender of activities when the school opens in September and take advantage of the dates when the cafeteria and/or the dining room is open. We pay only the cost of the food. Tips are not allowed. And we have delicious meals at bargain prices. Also it's fun to see the young people trying so hard to please their customers. Of course, the teachers are watching...

That's a great tip, thanks for sending it in Anne!
