On February 1, 2017, Ruby Tuesday is launching its “Sweet Sweeps,” with

From February 1 through February 19, to enhance Valentine’s Day dining
experiences, Ruby Tuesday is also offering special prices on entrée
additions, with savings available on both dine-in and TueGo

. Guests can add lobster tail for only $5.99 or grilled shrimp

To further complement Valentine’s Day celebrations, Ruby Tuesday is
featuring bottles of award-winning Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc and Meiomi

is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that delivers juicy and expressive
flavors like green apple, melon and lemon meringue. Meiomi Pinot Noir,
which won a Gold Medal in the 2016 Sommelier Challenge at the
International Wine and Spirits Competition, features flavors of jammy
fruit mingled with vanilla, mocha and toasty oak notes.

Finally, February 1 through 19, Ruby Tuesday will be offering a free $15
bonus card for every $50 in Ruby Tuesday gift cards purchased in-store
(terms and restrictions apply). Guests can also purchase
gift cards online
from February 10 through 19 to receive the bonus
cards, which are redeemable March 1 through April 11.

Ruby Tuesday looks for ways to make those dining occasions memorable,”

excited to host couples and families and look forward to serving special
dishes, great tasting wines and the new elevated Garden Bar we
introduced in all of our restaurants just a few weeks ago.”
