The last time I painted at Painting With a Twist in Fort Collins, I nearly peed my pants! I took my mom for her birthday and we painted poppies. Neither Mom or I are particularly artistic, but because the instructors give you step-by-step instructions, we gave it a go. After a glass (or two) of wine, we were having a great time, but when it came time to paint straight lines down our canvas for the fence behind our flowers, things started to go down hill. My mom's "straight" lines were NOT so straight and we started laughing uncontrollably because it looked like she had a seizure mid-brush stroke. Our paintings weren't really masterpieces, but it was such a fun experience to share with my mom.
Now I want everyone to be able to have just as much fun as we had, so I have this coupon for you for a FREE bottle of wine with the purchase of a class. That's a GREAT deal, because without the coupon, you have to pay your drinks once you get to class, and EVERYONE wants FREE booze!
Two hour classes are offered at $35 per painter and three hour classes are $45. Select Family classes are also offered for $25. No painting experience is required and all supplies are provided; simply show up and have fun!
Fall is here and Halloween is right around the corner! With that in mind, I have a couple of corn maze and pumpkin patch coupons for you to use with the family!
NORTHERN COLORADO JACK LANTERN'S CORN MAZE
The first one I have is for $2 OFF Day or Night Admission to Fort Collins' Oldest (and scariest) Corn Maze at Northern Colorado Jack Lantern's Corn Maze. Jack Lantern's Corn Maze — also known as the Northern Colorado Corn Maze — has been operating for 15 years and opens for the season on October 6, 2017. There are tons of daytime activities for the family including farm animals, bounce houses, pedal cars, pumpkin patches, and a 20 acre corn maze. At night, the corn maze turns SCARY and you and family can wander through the maze or take a haunted hay ride. Now, you MUST print this coupon and present it at the time of purchase. Displaying the coupon on your phone will not work, so may sure to have the physical copy with you. For pricing information and schedule, click here.

Ski and snowboard season is looming. In fact, I hear it's suppose to snow this Thursday! I am personally not much of a winter sportsman, as I don't see the appeal of of going fast down a hill in the cold.
