Denver Deal: Soybu, Starbucks, Sweet Tomatoes and More

For those of you who follow my blog posts with any kind of regularity – you would know that I like to work out (and I also kind of just like to dress like I work out – in my comfy yoga pants). I am super excited to go the Mamas Night Out at Soybu in Greenwood Village this coming Wednesday. I have been pouring over their website for a couple weeks now – trying to figure out exactly what I am going to get when I go. I just got an email that says there will be a discount for you too! Get 25% off on their Grand Opening on Wednesday. Plus, you don’t even have to feel bad if you can’t get to their new flagship store on Wednesday – because you can take advantage of the discount all week long online.

Sweet Tomatoes
One of my most favorite places to eat is Sweet Tomatoes. I love that my kids can help themselves to the giant salad bar as many times as they wish – and it will be fine with me. Kids eat free tomorrow (Tuesday) when you play their facebook page quiz – on what our President’s favorite foods were. Happy Presidents Day!
 
Starbucks
If you are a Starbucks drinker like I am (and my kids are) you might like their new promotion. Bring your receipt from your morning coffee to a Starbucks after 2 p.m and get a bakery item for just $1 as a special promotion for the addition of LaBoulange bakery treats, saving you almost $3 in some cases). Why, Hello Chocolate Croissant – I believe you’re calling my name.

Santa has arrived at several malls (last weekend) and I’m starting to get information on Black Friday deals. If you have any great insider scoop, please share it with me.

Denver Zoo’s Asian Tropics exhibit will bring visitors closer to animals

Four-year-old Aila Benavidez says her favorite thing about elephants are their trunks and big footprints.

Aila and her mother, Kirsten Benavidez, who visit the Denver Zoo every few months, will see twice the number of the big animals when the zoo opens its Asian Tropics exhibit.

“I applaud them,” Kirsten Benavidez said. “I’m happy they look out for the best interest of animals.”
