Denver Deal: Noodles, Chili’s, Kneaders and More

How early do your kids start thinking of what they will be for Halloween? At what age do they stop trick or treating? I sort of miss the cute trick or treating days (my kids at 14 and 15 years old have no intention to trick or treat this year – but are already plotting their costumes). I typically purchase candy that I like to eat in case I don’t hand it all out. But maybe I shouldn’t do that and my waist wouldn’t feel the effects. I recently read a post on facebook that some neighbors are trying to be conscientious about the neighbor kids peanut allergies and gluten free diets. Is this something you care about?

Noodles. Noodles is celebrating their 20th anniversary with 20 days of giveaways. The first of which is on Oct 20 you get a free mac and cheese with the purchase of another entree. Noodle lovers enjoy!

Chili’s. Chili’s is celebrating the Presidente margarita’s 21st birthday with $5 margaritas and 21-cent chips and salsa. OMG. Their chips are the BEST! (You can even buy the chips without the margarita).

Fab’rik women’s boutique, in Aspen Grove, invites you for a private shopping night hosted by the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley  on October 22 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Enjoy drinks & mini cupcakes while you shop. Plus 20% of net sales of full priced items from the event will be donated to benefit the fuzzy animals at the shelter.

Flu Shots. While it is getting close to flu season – you don’t have to WELCOME it.  North Suburban Medical Center has FREE flu shots while supplies last.  Costco has theirs for just $14.99. Rocky Mountain Urgent Care will do flu shots for $20.

Avalanche Family Night. Family night (presented by White Fence Farm) is Saturday, October 24 v Columbus Blue Jackets at 7 p.m. just $31 each gets you 1 upper level ticket, 1 Food & Pepsi Voucher. I love the way the Avalanche changed this promotion this year to a per person price (not all families are “4-packs”).

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 with 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). Englewood location at 9846 Zenith Meridian Dr will open Friday, October 23 – the first 100 customers will receive a complimentary meal of Kneaders’ famous French toast on their first day of business.

Happy Father’s Day! My dad always cheered my sister and me on when we scored a great deal. I always thought that was the girl thing (you know, mom clipping coupons to go to the grocery store). But if we could get a buy-one get-one free or a fun “extra” that we couldn’t really afford, my dad  is always the first one to cheer us on. His birthday is near Father’s Day so we presented him with coupons from a bunch of places freebies this year – he said, “this will be the best week ever.”  I hope this is your best week ever too!
