Kids Activity Deals in Denver

If you’re looking for family friendly activities in Denver, there are some great deals out there to keep the kids happy.

Earlier, we highlighted a special Living Social offer for Boondocks in Northglenn. This is a great fun center in the Northern suburbs of Denver with Mini-Golf, Go-Karting, an Arcade, Laser Tag & more.

Living Social also has a deal for Miner’s Maze Adventure in Golden, CO. The deal contains a special attractions package for 2 people at $18 or 4 people at $36. Miner’s Maze has a 5,000 foot two level human maze, the largest maze of its kind in Colorado.  Miner’s Maze also features a shooting gallery, ropes course, bungee, a climbing wall & more.  It makes for a great afternoon with the kids. The ropes course has been well reviewed on TripAdvisor.

For a laser tag experience without the lasers, you might want to try Battle Dartz in Westminster. Battle Dartz is an indoor facility that gives out soft dart/disc nerf blasters and lets kids loose in their battle arena.  One Yelp reviewer commented “if you want a safe place to tire your kids out..this is it!”.  There is a Living Social deal that allows for one hour of play at $12 (for 2 people) or $22 (for 4 people).

On Groupon, you can get a 50% off deal for Monster Mini Golf in Centennial. Located on Holly street, Monster Mini Golf is as the name suggests, a mini golf course with “scary” black-lit monster obstacles. The Groupon deal is for 4 rounds of mini golf, which can be used by different people or on different visits, for just $18 (normally $36). Monster Mini Golf currently has a 3.5 star rating on Yelp & a 4 star rating on Google.

Pizza Deals in Denver – 3.31.15

Pizza is one of those universal foods that almost everyone likes. When Pizza is good, its really good, but when its bad, well…it’s still pretty good. If you’re craving pizza, there are plenty of offers available now through Groupon & Living Social.

Living Social has a decent deal going for Basil Doc’s pizza, netting you $30 to spend for just $18. This offer is good for three locations, two on Holly Street and one on East Virginia Avenue in Denver.  Basil Doc’s is on the pricier side (a large specialty is $27), so the Groupon should cover a large or a couple of small pizzas. I’ve had their Santa Fe White pizza and it was pretty good.  I’ve had better white pizzas in the area, but I would say it was worth the $18 deal.

Living Social is also running a special offer for Mici Handcrafted Italian, which includes Two Salads, 10-Inch Pizzas, Small Gelatos & a Bottle of Wine for $35.  Mici Handcrafted Italian is well reviewed online, with a 4.2 rating on Google & a 4-star rating in Yelp.

Groupon has a deal for Sexy Pizza, with three locations across Denver including Capitol Hill, Pearl Street & Jefferson Park.  The deal is for a $25 restaurant credit for $17.  An 18″ large specialty pizza runs about $20, so the Groupon should cover it. Sexy Pizza currently has some good reviews online, with a 3.8 rating in Google & a 4 star rating on UrbanSpoon.  Yelp reviewer haven’t been as kind.

TravelZoo has a dinner for two offer from Pasquini’s on South Broadway in Denver for $29.  This deal includes a shared appetizer, two entrees & two desserts (doesn’t look to include drinks).  Pasquini’s has a three star rating online, and having eaten their, I tend to agree. It’s decent, and this deal looks to be a good value.

Denver Pilates Deals – 3.30.15

If you’re looking to get into shape or start an exercise regimen, then there are a number of deals available through Groupon & Living Social that you may want to consider.

If Pilates are your thing, then there a number of deals currently being offered. Pilates Denver Studio, located in Greenwood Village has a 5 class deal on Groupon for $44 or a 10 class deal for $85.  One Yelp user gave Pilates Denver Studio the following review.

I purchased a groupon to try Pilates Denver and have been very happy with my experiences thus far.  A very clean and nice studio, bright and sunny with good instructors.  I like that they offer mat Pilates, barre and yoga.  I plan on continuing to attended class well after my deal is up.

Personal Pilates Plus, located on 44th & Lowell in Denver, is running a living social deal offering 10 classes at $79. Personal Pilates Plus has a 5-star rating on Yelp from 5 reviews, with many previous Living Social buyers complimenting the experience.

Another Groupon deal is for PH7 Pilates located at 1162 Madison St in Congress Park. This offer is good for 5 Pilates mat classes for $46. PH7  has received positive reviews from Yelp and other Groupon users.

Mexican Food Deals in Denver – 3.28.15

If you’re in the mood for Mexican Food in the near future, you have your choice of plenty of great deals now available on various coupon sites.

My favorite deal currently available is through TravelZoo for LaSandia. This special offer is a $40 dining credit for $20. With two locations in the Denver Metro area (Stapleton & Park Meadows), LaSandia is an upscale restaurant offing great Latin dishes.  My wife & I have eaten their many times and love the food.  Their chips & salsa is addictive as are their Sangrias.  Our favorite items on the menu is the Chicken Zarape & the Chicken Mole Pobalno.

Both Living Social & Groupon have deals running for Antonio’s A Taste of Mexico in Longmont. Living Social has the better of the two, running a $20 restaurant credit for $10 offer. Antonio’s menu features items that are both Mexican & New Mexican themed. Their Indian Fry Bread Tacos really caught my eye.  Antonio’s has a strong rating from many of the online review sites including Google, Yelp, UrbanSpoon & OpenTable.com, so expect the food & service to be strong. This looks like a good value.

Living Social also has a 50% off deal for Tapas D’Jerez restaurant in Centennial. The offer gives you a $50 restaurant credit (toward food & non-alcoholic drinks) for $25. Tapas D’Jerez is a spanish tapas place that was named to 5280 magazine’s best new restaurant list upon it’s opening in 2006. The restaurant has a decent overall rating on the popular review sites, boasting a 4-star rating on Google & Urban Spoon and a 3.5 star rating on Yelp & Open Table. From the reviews, the croquetas are a crowd favorite.

Yak & Yeti Restaurant Coupons

Yak & Yeti is a pretty popular dining option in the Arvada, but now the restaurant is expanding into the Denver/Aurora area.  It’s newest location is at 9755 E Hampden Ave in Denver not far from the Kennedy Golf Course (and next to the Starbucks across from the Wal-Mart).

Val-Pak online has a couple of coupons for this newest Yak & Yeti location that you can use through April 9th. The first is a BOGO 50% off when you purchase an entree or buffet. The second coupon gets you a beer and a basket of Naan, which I highly recommend both, for only $5.

While not the best Indian food I’ve had in Denver, Yak & Yeti is pretty solid. Their Chicken Tiki Masala, Saag Paneer & Lamb Korma are all really good options.

But what really sets Yak & Yeti apart from other Denver area Indian restaurants is their beer.  They brew their own beers, which have won various local awards. My favorite is the Chai Milk Stout which is smooth & creamy with a hint of sweetness. For those who like IPAs, my friends have raved about the Himalayan IPA.

Sushi Deals in Denver – 3.27.15

I don’t know if there is a more divisive cuisine in the United States than Sushi.  Some people love it and some won’t go near it. If you are one of the individuals that love sushi, then there are a number of Groupon & Living Social deals floating around this week (as of 3.27.15)

Zo Shusi & Thai in Broomfield has a pair of deals on Groupon, one giving a $15 dining deal for $9 and the other offering $30 in food for $17.  Zo Shusi & Thai has some favorable ratings on Google (4 stars off 38 reviews), UrbanSpoon.com (4 stars off 130 reviews) & Yelp (3.5 stars off 77 reviews).

For residents in the Aurora & Stapleton areas, Blue Fin Sushi has a pair of Groupon offers. The first is a $30 dining credit for $17, while the other is $40 worth of food for $23. However, online reviews for Blue Fin Sushi are mixed, as Google, UrbanSpoon & Yelp all report an average rating of 3 stars. Their Nigiri Sushi & Standard Rolls average about $5.50, while their Tempura Rolls are a bit higher, so $30-$40 should be enough for a party of two.

Living Social has a good deal for Japon Sushi, offering $24 worth of sushi for $12. Located in Westminster, Japon Sushi has strong online ratings, boasting an average 4-star rating on Google, UrbanSpoon & Yelp. Most of their individual rolls cost about $4.50, but they have Sushi dinners from $17.99 and special rolls starting at $9.95. In all likelihood, your bill might be more than the $24 credit, but still a good value given the strong ratings.

Living Social also has a deal on Sushi Hai, located in the Highlands. This deal is also a 50% savings, allowing for $40 worth of food for $20.  Sushi Hai has mixed online ratings, with a number of reviewers saying its a little overpriced. Some thought the food was good, while others thought it was just ok, so buyer beware.
