I have lived in Colorado all my life. Part of the new year every year is the National Western Stock Show. When I was little and lived in Steamboat, my family had a horse but I can’t say we were ever real cowboys the way the Show Show is. But it is fun to be a part of something that is so uniquely Denver. Plus, it is really inexpensive entertainment. You can usually score deals on Groupon or Living Social, go the last day for Fan Appreciation Day ($10 for adults and kids 3-11 years old are just $3), or get a deal with your Powerball or Lucky for Life lottery tickets (buy $10 get a Buy One Get one Voucher).
Exxon and Shell BOGO Ski Tickets. Buy 10 gallons or more of gas at a participating Shell or Exxon Station – Get a Buy One Get One Free Ski ticket voucher. Take that voucher to one of the participating ski resorts (Copper, Crested Butte, Powderhorn, or Sunlight). When you purchase one adult lift ticket you get one free.
Einstein Bros. Bagels. Mondays through the Month of January, Einstein wants to get your week started right. Get 13 bagels for just $7.
Pretzelmaker. Grab a pretzel at Pretzelmaker for just $1 every Tuesday through January.
Denver Travel, Design & Food Festival. I love expos. Because for a small amount of money you can spend a n entire day walking around and dreaming. This event happens Fab 10 & 11 at the National Western Complex. It is just $10 at the door  – but you can save $3 per ticket by buying online before you go! Travel agents get Free Admission with Business card at the door.
Colorado Indian Market. I have a friend who owns a Native American bead shop on South Broadway. She told me about the Colorado Indian Market January 19-21 at the Denver Mart.
