I am participating in a September Dining Days campaign for AARP Services, Inc. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with AARP Services Inc. and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.
Have you heard about the September Dining Days with AARP? I shared with you recently about my experience joining AARP. I'm already loving the benefits now that I've started using them.
September Dining Days offers discounts this month and all year long to AARP members at many of your favorite restaurants. Simply go to the Dining Days page on the AARP Member Advantages website and scroll through all the great choices.
Right after I became an AARP member, I started checking out all the ways to save. September Dining Days caught my eye as we love to eat out!
So many places on the list are already my go-to spots for lunch or dinner. Carrabba's Italian Grill has the best house salad and some of the best Italian cuisine around. Bonefish seafood is always delicious – I love their Bang Bang Shrimp!
The last time I dined at Bonefish was about a month ago with girlfriends, and I discovered the new Grilled Salmon Super Salad. SO good!
My husband also loves the Bang Bang Shrimp, so we decided to head there for dinner recently. When was the last time you went out to dinner with your family or had a date night? We really enjoyed it!
Bonefish Grill's casual upbeat atmosphere is a great fit for our family, and we always enjoy the wait staff. Most of all, as a foodie, I appreciate that the food is so fresh.
We were so full at the end of our meal, but somehow had room for that delicious Jen's Jamaican Coconut Pie! If you are a coconut fan, you've got to try it.
Looking for somewhere new to try? See below for the Dining Days decision tree to help find the right fit for your next dining experience.

And that's only a handful of the restaurants offering discounts to AARP members!
There's no better way to celebrate than eating out, and we always seem to find reasons to visit our favorite restaurants! My youngest daughter just turned 18, my husband just had a birthday and my oldest just turned 21. That was a fun couple of weeks of celebrations!
But it's not just really special occasions that lure us to making dinner plans at one of our local favorites. Sometimes we just don't feel like cooking after a busy day, and Happy Hour is the perfect solution for us.
We often order four or five appetizers and just enjoy each other's company, playing high/low where we share our best and not-so-great moments of the day. And as a bonus, we can head home and just relax with no dinner dishes to wash. That's a win all the way around!
Which of the restaurants offering an AARP Member discount are your favorites? I'd love to know as we're always looking for something new to try.
