    I’ve told several people about your site recently. I used to be signed up a couple of years ago, but somehow I stopped getting emails and forgot about it. Then I stumbled across it again and promptly signed up. Thanks to it, last week I: volunteered at City Park, volunteered at the Horror Film fest, and went to the designer sample giveaway event in Aurora. I can’t wait to read what’s on there every day!

    Do you know if any ‘discount’ websites were offering discounted tickets to the Denver Art Museum’s Brilliant exhibit? Thank you. Judy Bata

  • Laura

    Judy, we haven’t seen any on Groupon or LivingSocial or similar. I think that is because the Art Museum is doing so well with ticket sales that they don’t have to give any discounts. — Laura

    Looks like there is a really cool art event for kids at Colorado Meineger art stores Saturday 2-4.
