Get a free boat tour of Long Beach Harbor when you buy lunch at one of four restaurants near the city's Shoreline Aquatic Park. It happens every Wednesday through the end of the month -- provided you like lunch at noon sharp.
The deal: Order takeout lunch prior to arriving at one of these Shoreline Village places -- Stefano's Pizza, Tugboat Pete's, Cafe Dia Bakery or Shenanigan's Irish Pub & Grill -- to reserve your spot on the boat. Then pick up your food by 11:45 a.m. and receive boarding passes for the Spirit Cruise that leaves at noon (Dock 9 near Parkers Lighthouse).
When: The deal is good for sailings at noon Wednesdays only through Aug. 28.
Details: You get to buy selected to-go options to get this deal. A slice of pizza at Stefano's costs $7.25 or a 6-inch Italian sub sandwich for $8.15. Hamburgers, hot dogs and cheeseburgers with chips and cookies will run you $6.25 at Tugboat Pete's, and a spinach walnut salad at Shenanigan's costs $4.50. The half-hour cruise heads out of the harbor past the Queen Mary and back.
