Summertime is a busy time.
As you buzz around this summer, whether it be whittling down the to-do list or heading to a baseball game, it's easy to get tied up or even just lose track of time. Those are often some of the best nights to take the family out to dinner rather than scramble to whip up something at the last minute.
You can even ease the burden on your budget by patronizing restaurants that grant a military discount. Here's a look at more than a dozen restaurant discounts to consider the summer:
