Deals: Colorado Garden & Home Show, Free Days

posted by:

I learned a lot about Hong Kong while I was there – one of the coolest things I learned is that for the Chinese New Year it is tradition not to clean your home for the entire celebration (keep in mind a family of four lives in a TINY space about 400 sq feet!) None the less, since I was there, my kids were happy when I announced they would not have to do these types of chores for two whole weeks!

Colorado Garden & Home Show at the Colorado Convention Center. Discover the Rocky Mountain region’s oldest, largest and most prestigious garden and home show – Saturday, February 4 through Sunday, February 12 – where you can find inspiration from the latest ideas and trends in landscaping, gardening and home improvement from more than 650 exhibitors. Children 12 and under are free; adult admission is $12, senior admission is $10.   Here are a few ways to save: If you go Monday-Thursday (Feb 6-9), admission is 2-for-1. Buy discounted tickets at TicketsWest outlets in King Soopers or bring a nonperishable food item at the show for $2 off admission. (Discount not valid on Monday – Thursday.)

Arapahoe Library presents Bachelor Sean. I am a sucker for The Bachelor (on ABC) – maybe because I hope that I can find my own bachelor at some point. But I am also a sucker for my library, which is always one of my favorite escapes. Arapahoe Library has brought in some fun authors in the past (I met Andrew McCarthy that way). They are doing it again with Bachelor Sean Lowe as a new author. The event is free (but you need to register) or you can purchase a ticket for just $30 to meet and greet. It  takes place February 10 at the Embassy Suites DTC.
