The Cheescake Factory in Southdale (Edina, 952-653-3333) is participating in the national "any slice half-price" promotion today only, Monday, July 30. You can choose from 35 flavors, including the debut of the Oreo Dream Extreme. (The cheesecakes are on pp. 13-14 of the online menu.) The Edina restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. today,


The online promo says that the half-price slice is only valid for dine-in service, but an employee who answered the phone at the Edina location this morning said that take out is also allowed. Still, it's one slice per person. In other words, we can try to place a take-out order for our "family of four," but only one slice will be half-price. A slice of cheesecake is about $7 to $8 before the discount.
