Reminder: Free Family Film Festival at Rave Cinemas + $1.00 Movie Meals

UPDATE: Hey guys; I would like to clarify that the movie meal is $1 off instead of only $1 total. Sorry for the confusion.

You may have seen me talk about the Rave Cinemas FREE Family Film Festival every Monday and Thursday at 10am, but did you know that during these movies you can buy a movie meal for $1 off as well? That's a deal in my book - especially for air conditioned entertainment!

I'm quoting this statement straight from the assistant manager at in Baton Rouge: "Their movie meals are a $1.00 off during the festival ($4.50). We do not mind if guests bring their own snacks, and you can always get a large popcorn with unlimited refills."

Rave Cinemas FREE Family Film Festival - find the schedule HERE
Every Monday and Thursday beginning at 10am

My Baton Rouge Mommy is #3 in 225 Magazine's Best Of - And I Couldn't Be Happier!!!

Three years ago (almost to the current date) I started My Baton Rouge Mommy with the mission to help others save as much money as possible for themselves and their families. In these 3 years, I have gotten to know many of you and I'm extremely humble that you choose to read my blog daily, weekly, every once in a while or whenever.

It's truly rewarding to know that many of you value advice from a mom sitting in her living room (sometimes in her PJ's) looking for deals on her laptop.

A few months ago I learned that I had been nominated for 225 Magazine's prestigious Best Of Issue for best Baton Rouge Blogger/Social Media Personality. I can't even describe to you how excited I was just to hear that I was nominated. I was up against some stiff competition with others like JR Ball with Baton Rouge Business Report, Jay Ducote with Bite and Booze and Brandon Williams with Claim Your Journey.


I headed to the launch party for the Best Of Issue last night and found…

What's For Dinner? "Homemade Chicken Shawarma"

Hummus, Baba Ganoush, Falafel and of course Chicken Shawarma; these are all things we crave when we think of Mediterranean food. What if I told you that you can make grilled Mediterranean Chicken that measures up to your favorite Chicken Shawarma take out?
