There’s a great voucher deal for Hot Rods 50s Diner today on FlutterToday. You can pay $6 for $12 in food and drink at this fantastic restaurant in Alcoa. I purchase multiple copies of this voucher every time it’s available, as my girls and I love Hot Rods! Go here to get your voucher.
The last time I took my mother-in-law to Hot Rods, she commented that she didn’t know how they stayed in business since they give you so much food for such small prices. I have no idea how they do that, but I know we never leave there hungry!
You can also sign up for Hot Rods e-club and you’ll receive a free gift, plus a great coupon on your birthday! Remember when you go that you can only use one voucher or coupon per table.

Here’s a FREE event for parents & kids at the Knoxville Zoo! I received this info directly via email from the Zoo, but the event is a church-sponsored one, and is not affiliated with the Zoo. See the disclaimer at the bottom of the post.
On Tuesday, June 9 at The Knoxville Zoo’s Lee Congleton Conference Center, Dr. Riley Bernard of UT’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology will be presenting an informational session on bats. The meeting takes place from 5:30 P.M. until 7:00. The meeting is FREE to attend and open to all ages!
Children are welcome to attend the Science Cafe meeting with their parents. For ages 5-12, they offer a Kid’s Cafe program in a nearby area with a science lesson and activities that help make learning science fun! Kids can participate with the permission of their parents while the parents enjoy the adult-level discussion. For proper planning purposes, it is important that the children’s director knows in advance how many kids will be attending and their ages.
There is no parking or admission fee for those attending only the Science Café and who will not be visiting the Zoo’s animal exhibits. Space is limited, so please RSVP by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit the Spirit & Truth Fellowship web site.
Disclaimer: The STFK Science Café is sponsored by a pro-science Evangelical Church called Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville. However, during Science Café meetings, discussion will be restricted to topics of science only. Religious viewpoints shall not be presented. Within the context of the Science Café, Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville does not advocate religion.

The Fairview UMC Children’s Consignment Sale will be July 18, and they’re now accepting consignors. Registration is online this year, and you can sign up here. More information is available in the image below, and you can also visit the church website here or RSVP to the Facebook event here. Remember, there will be a special pre-sale open only to consignors on Friday, July 17 at 7 p.m. Two tickets will be issued per consignor. (If you’d like to have additional friends join you, pre-sale tickets may be purchased for $10 the night of the event to enter at 7:30 p.m.)
This sale is one of my favorites, because you can consign items from any season, and because they mail your consignment check straight to your house! I always consign in this sale, and can definitely recommend it! I will have a giveaway for pre-sale passes in a few weeks, so stay posted!
