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!
Los Tarascos in Fort Collins is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in town. I love the atmosphere and I swear, I have never had better salsa... among other things! That is why I want to share this coupon with you again. When you buy one dinner entree at regular price, you'll receive a second entree of equal or lesser value for half price! They also have the same coupon available, only for lunch!
Also, if you use your coupon this month, you can try their Birria Tacos and apparently you can ONLY find them at Los Tarascos through the end of November!
This coupon is valid for dine-in only and not valid with any other offer.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not a camper. Don't get me wrong, I like to get out in nature and hike and fish, but at the end of the day, I want to go home, shower, and sleep in my own comfy bed. No tents for me, thank you very much.
However, if you're like most Coloradans I know, you love camping. So, although camping season is over, you can check out www.freecampsites.net and search for free campsites to check out next season. Search by state and/or zip code!
One of the things I like so much about living in Fort Collins is how close we are to Denver. I wouldn't want to live in Denver, but I do like living close enough to take advantage of some of the big city perks, like the zoo and museums.
Of course, I don't want to spend a ton of money when I go down, so I like to keep up with the FREE days around the city. Most of these days are funded, in part, by taxes collected through the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District. Others are funded by corporate sponsorship. This month, you can take advantage of the following FREE DAYS:
Thanksgiving is nearly here and Safeway is offering a FREE Hen Turkey (16 lbs. or less), when you spend $100 or more in groceries — in a single transaction. If you’re looking for a bigger bird, spend more than $150 or more and get a FREE Tom Turkey (16.01-lbs or more.) The price of the turkey does not count toward the minimum purchase requirement. Limit one FREE turkey per transaction. (The offer is not valid on the purchase of liquor, tobacco, stamps, lottery, pharmacy, gift cards or any items prohibited by law.) The promo ends Tuesday, November 7.
One day a year, Sprouts Farmers Market offers a great deal on gift cards and today, Wednesday, November 1 is the day. Get a $100 Sprouts Farmers Market gift card for just $89.99. The offer is only available in-store — not online. Limit 3 per person.
If you get in on this deal, you'll be saving 10% on groceries. If you buy 3 gift cards, you're basically getting $30.03 worth of groceries for FREE!
I am always so tense this time of year... It's cold, I am running the kids around, and I am trying to get my act together for the holidays. I don't think I am alone here, so that is why I am sharing this coupon with you for a One Hour Custom Massage at LaVida Massage in Fort Collins for only $39.95. Normally, a one-hour massage at LaVida is $79.95 — that's a savings of $40!
This offer is exclusive to Valpak. LaVida does offer a new client discount for new customers for $49.95, so make sure to use your coupon to save that extra $10!
Offer is valid for new clients only.
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday with ancient roots combining Mexican indigenous customs with European traditions. It is a tribute to the memory and family and friends who have passed away. Families celebrate by creating ofrendas (offerings) — elaborate displays commemorating loved ones — decorating sugar skulls and more.
This Saturday, November 4 , the whole family can celebrate The Day of the Dead from noon to 8pm at the Denver Botanic Gardens. There will be activities, crafts, and exhibits, in addition to all the gardens have to offer.
One of the things I like about coupons is they give you an excuse to check out new places — caes in point: The Flipside Pinball Arcade Bar in Loveland!
As the name suggests, The Flipside is a bar that has all your favorite old-school pinball machines and video games. Now, I am not much a gamer, but I am always down for doing something new and fun, and I am going to use this Valpak coupon for $1 off a Tallboy as an excuse to go check out The Flipside and so should you!
Coupon offers are available the date that I post them but may change at any time.
