Deals: Mardi Gras, WOW! Children’s Museum Reopening and More
posted by: Gretchen
For years now my celebrations have centered around FOOD. For the Olympics opening ceremony, we cook (or order) food with the nationality of the place where the games are being held. And for the Super Bowl – we have created several foods from wings to nachos (which we will do this coming weekend – my dad suggested empanadas filled with Kansas City BBQ to get both teams). This year while we can’t travel – we are traveling through food one night per month. Our virtual travels will feature the food, music and a movie (or other entertainment) from a place. Taking suggestions – but may just have to do the City of Love with a Parisian cheese selection.
Mardi Gras at the Dairy Block. Maybe you can’t travel to New Orleans for Mardi Gras this year – but there is no reason why we can’t have our own awesome celebration in Denver! Saturday, February 13 from 10 a.m. to noon the Dairy Block will host the 3rd Annual Petite parade made of shoe boxes. The event is free, but Covid will require pre-registration.
