The O.C. Bargainista

June 11, 2010|Candice Baker

It's all about the dads this week. But never fear, ladies — there's also a deal just for you.

Freebie of the Week: Coco's and Carrows Restaurants are holding a "Ties for Pies" Father's Day Celebration through the end of the month.

Those who bring a gently used tie to any of the chains' California restaurants will receive a coupon for a slice of their fresh-baked pie.


The ties will be donated to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, which will help struggling vets dress well for job interviews.

Local options include the Coco's at 151 Newport Center Drive and 900 Bristol St. N. in Newport Beach; 3446 E. Coast Hwy., Corona del Mar; and 2750 Harbor Blvd., Costa Mesa. Information:
