Denver Deals: Stocks Show, Free Days, and more

I am the deals editor. I don’t often play the Powerball (and I rarely have cash because I can’t track where it goes). But I decided this week to play. I mean really, if it is $1.3 Billion – with a “B” – I may win right? Do you dream about what you will do with your money? That was exactly what I was thinking on my run yesterday. But I realized that Deals are so ingrained in me I would still probably look for a deal – a way to make my money go further. Would you?

Heritage Square really is closing – this November 1st. you still have time to go and enjoy some of the fun favorite attractions like the Miner’s Maze Adventureland that combines a twisting labyrinth with a high ropes course directly above the maze with 25 separate balancing challenges.

Kneaders Bakery and Cafe. My daughter and I went to the newest Kneaders on Friday after my son’s football game. My daughter called it a “fast-food cracker barrel.” I am guessing she said that because there is a (Hallmark-like) shop. The menu is primarily sandwiches, salads, and soups. There is a ton of bakery items as well (my daughter said the pumpkin cookie was great). I understand we should go back for the french toast (we didn’t get there in time for the free meal). They are opening a few more locations in the next weeks: CASTLE ROCK – Planned opening Friday, October 16 (810 New Memphis Ct. Castle Rock, CO 80109) and ENGLEWOOD – Planned opening Friday, October 23 (9846 Zenith Meridian Dr.Englewood, CO 80112). To celebrate their grand openings, the first 100 customers at each new location will receive a complimentary meal of Kneaders’ famous French toast on their first day of business.

Southwest Airlines. Not all fall break deals are stay-cations. Southwest Airlines has a lot of great deals. I’m kind of thinking of taking my daughter to the Mall of America (in Minneapolis) for some more back to school shopping or maybe we’ll go to a Disney park.
