You love Dine Out Boston, the meal deal event that used to be known as Restaurant Week. DOB gives you the opportunity to be adventurous and try new-to-you eateries and new cuisines. It also gives you hundreds of multi-course, prix fixe options prepared by creative chefs especially for the event. But mostly you love DOB because of the value it offers.

I'm not saying you're cheap. (Then again, I'm not not saying you're cheap.) I'm saying you're not averse to saving some money and you appreciate a good deal. DOB is brimming with great deals. But you know that, because you love DOB.

What you may not know is that vendors other than restaurants also have great offers in conjunction with the food event. For example, if you are planning to drive your car to a restaurant for DOB, you are going to need a place to park it, right? The parking app, SpotHero, which already offers discounted rates at garages, lots, and valet stands, is offering an additional $5 off to DOB patrons.

Want to combine a hotel stay with your specially priced meals? Plan a late summer foodie getaway. Both the Liberty Hotel Boston and the Inn at Hastings Park are offering DOB packages.

Extend your day in the city by taking a Boston Duck Tour and capping it off with a DOB meal. The land and water tour company is offering $5 off to DOB guests. Then cap off your meal with a drink at the Frost Ice Bar. Chill out and get 50% off admission by flashing a DOB restaurant receipt.

The summer 2014 version of Dine Out Boston continues from Sunday, August 24 through Friday, August 29. Make your reservations and take advantage of these special offers before it's too late, you cheapskate. I mean, you connoisseur of fine deals.
