Deals: 4th of July, Colorado Renaissance Festival & More!

Deals: 4th of July, Colorado Renaissance Festival & More!

Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. We get to hang out with friends and family, eat a lot, hang out in the summer sunshine and all of us partake in FREE entertainment. At least the fireworks shows I seem to enjoy are free. (You can also go to sporting events or other paid entertainment – but the fireworks for the most part can be seen/enjoyed for free). We have pulled together a list of a ton of cool things to do.  

ARC Sale. The 4th of July is a day to celebrate all that is great about America…and a day to SAVE BIG at all 27 ARC Thrift Stores across the Front Range. On Wednesday, July 4th, just about everything in the stores – summer dresses, shorts, t-shirts, bathing suits, vacation must-haves, pool toys, housewares, barbecue supplies, home décor, and more – is 50 PERCENT OFF!! 

Quizno’s.  Just in time for the Fourth of July, Quiznos will offer a limited time offer of BOGO BBQ Pulled Pork subs from July 1 – 8. Members of Quiznos’ Toasty Points loyalty program can order either of the two BBQ pulled pork recipes (Southern Style or Spicy Chipotle) and can get a second pulled pork sub free at participating U.S. locations. If you’re not are already a loyalty member, you can still enjoy a free sub. Just download the Toasty Points app to redeem the BOGO offer.

 Noodles & Company Mac and Cheese Day. Can you guess which menu item flies out of the kitchen fastest at Noodles & Company restaurants in Denver? I’ll give you a hint: It’s rich, creamy, and leaves the boxed variety in its orange-dyed dust. Since ​Mile High Mamas​  readers know a thing or two about elbow noodles smothered in cheddar cheese sauce, any member of the NoodlesREWARDS program can snag a free small bowl of Wisconsin Mac & Cheese with the purchase of a regular entrée on Saturday, July 14 (National Mac & Cheese Day!). Fans just need to sign up at by Friday, July 13
