Layer on the savings on National Lasagna Day. July 29th is National Lasagna Day, but BRIO Tuscan Grille is celebrating early. On Thursday, July 27, the Italian restaurant will celebrate with 50% off its Mama’s Lasagna Bolognese. For lunch, customers can order Mama’s Lasagna Bolognese & Insalata, featuring a half portion of the popular dish paired with a salad. For dinner, only the full-size portion will be available. (A full-size portion can also be ordered at lunch.) There are two locations — Cherry Creek Mall in Denver and Park Meadows in Lone Tree. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made online at www.BrioItalian.com.
No need to whine ever, when it comes to saving money. Romano’s Macaroni Grill is making Thursday the day to dine out for an Italian lunch or dinner. Every Thursday, the restaurant offers half-priced bottle of wines at participating locations all day — for a limited time. The offer does not apply to glasses — just bottles. (I’m not a wine drinker, so I have no idea what else to add without sounding silly. I know there’s red and white…that’s it!) If you love the restaurant, sign-up for its e-mail club for lots of members-only promo and discounts, as well as be the first to hear about new dishes — click here. (As always, please don’t drink and drive.)
If you need another reason to cheer on our Colorado Rockies, Taco Bell is again offering its popular taco promo this season — through October 1. The day following a game in which the Rockies score 7 runs or more (win or lose), score 4 tacos for $2 (reg. $1.29 x 4 = $5.16) between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. at participating locations. Limit one special per person.
A family of four could eat dinner for under $10 and probably still have a few tacos left over. (MHOTC Tip: The promo time overlaps for one hour from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the fast-food chain’s daily Happier Hour promo, which runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. During those hours, get a medium drink or regular Freeze for $1, too.)
Now that’s savings we can go to bat for anytime! Go, Rockies!
If you grew up in the 80s, you know “Top Gun” (and its soundtrack) very well. Well, now’s your chance to experience it again on the big screen…on a really, really big screen and in 3-D! The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is hosting a special screening at 7:30 p.m. each night from Thursday, July 27 to Saturday, July 29. Tickets for non-members are $9.95 for adults and $7.95 for juniors/children (18 and younger) and seniors. For convenience, order tickets online. (There are no additional fees. We tested the system.) It’s a rare opportunity to relive the 80s in such a special way at the movie theater again. Parents can take their kids, so they can see what mom and dad we’re watching as teens…and not on a smartphone. Heck, we didn’t even know what a cell phone was back then! (I’m keeping my fingers crossed for “Purple Rain” in IMAX 3-D!)
arc Thrift Stores are running a summer special on t-shirts, tank tops, swimwear, shorts and more — just 99¢ each. With temperatures running in the 90s, it’s the perfect opportunity to supplement your family’s summer wardrobe. The hot deal runs Friday, July 21 (9 a.m. to 9 p.m.) and Saturday, July 22 (8 a.m. to 9 p.m.) at all 24 Front Range locations. If you don’t mind searching racks and racks of clothes, you’re bound to spot the fashions suited to your style. On occasion, you can even find items with the original tags, which means “brand new.”
You can top this deal with pepperoni, sausage, tomatoes, green peppers, onions and more. Through Sunday, July 23, Pizza Hut is offering 50% off menu-priced pizzas at participating locations — any size, any toppings. The offer is only available online. However, choose pick-up rather than delivery, to save on delivery fees. (It never makes sense to get a deal and, then, pay extra in fees, right?) With no limit, it’s the perfect excuse for a pizza party at the office or home. The promo is not valid with any other discounts.
What used to be one the best deals for senior hikers, nature lovers and history fans since 1994 is about to cost a whole lot more — $70 more, to be exact. The National Park Service is increasing the price of a Lifetime Pass for Seniors (62+) from $10 to $80 on August 28. (The additional revenue will be used to make much-needed repairs and enhancements in the parks.) It is valid at more than 2,000 U.S. national parks, forests, refuges, monuments and recreation managed by six federal agencies. If you qualify, buy yours now. Even if you just use the pass once, it’s worth the investment. [Read more…] about NPS Hikes Senior Lifetime Pass to $80 Soon, Buy Now for $10
