Deals: Cow Appreciation Day, Araphoe County Fair & More!
posted by: Gretchen
I sort of wish I was on a beach right now. So, this month my kids and I are taking a mental vacation to a beach by watching a movie outside every night (we bought a cheap-ish projector from Amazon). We are picking movies that are about a beach, on a beach, or filmed in a tropical vacation. Doesn’t matter if the film is old or new. Here are some of our picks: Moana, Lilo & Stitch, Teen Beach Movie, Rip Tide, Blue Crush, Captain Ron, Pirates (all of them), Fool’s Gold, 50 First Dates, Dolphin Tale, Flipper, Aqua Marien, Overboard, Blue Lagoon, Zeus & Roxanne, Surf’s Up, The Way Way Back, and a few that are rated R (but my kids are old enough to see those).
Cow Appreciation is Coming! Mark your calendars: Chick-fil-A is celebrating its 14th annual Cow Appreciation Day on Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

Noodles & Company Mac and Cheese Day. Can you guess which menu item flies out of the kitchen fastest at Noodles & Company restaurants in Denver?
