Aug 8-Aug13th

I've realized a few things in doing this blog, one I am not as consistent as I would to be, two the links I put on the blog posts don't always work on phones, three the way I type the post doesn't come out the same on the blog wall, which makes me a little sad but oh well, and fourth as much as I would like to say this blog is for others I've realized it's for me. I use the links and look at the blog to try to plan things to do with my kids, when I don't update it and look at it on an iphone I can't find what's happening as easily as I would like. It also makes it easier for me to try to plan fun play dates for my kids with my friends and their kids. It also gives me a way to include everyone of my friends without feeling like I'm being pushy by texting them calling them, messaging them, or even e-mailing them every time I find a new activity. I refer my friends to the blog and hope they look at it and use the links on the side.

This last week of June, more inexpensive or free movies start.

     Two Regal theaters have the Regal Summer Movie Express where you get into a kid friendly movie for $1 and the movies start at 10 AM. If going to these I would suggest trying to be there early since it is an indoor event that makes it more appealing during the hot summer days. They show the same two movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The first theater is The Colonnade Stadium 14 on 8880 Eastern Ave, this one is the closest for Henderson residents. The second theater is The Village Square Stadium 18 on 9400 W Sahara. Both theaters play the same movies as the other, different two movies each week though. This week's movies are  Journey 2 and Kit Kittredge: American Girl STADIUM 14

St Patricks Day

Next weekend is St Patrick's Day weekend, also my birthday weekend. Of course as many people know I enjoy scoring free items. Whether I win a prize or am a member of a rewards program or even just hear about something going on like National Pancake Day. So I'm going to share my thoughts on the places I go to celebrate my birthday. There are many birthday specials out there
Has a list of some places I wasn't aware of and some that we don't have here in Vegas. Most places you need to sign up for their e-mails or their e-club or their rewards club to get a birthday freebie. So if you have a restaurant you enjoy eating out at check their website and sign up for their e-mails and during your birthday month you could get a special treat, some places give you half birthday coupons and some on the anniversary of you becoming a member of their loyalty club. Most things through e-mail need to be printed, unless the e-mail says you can show your e-mail from your phone.
Arby's sent me a coupon for a free regular roast beef with the purchase of a small drink (or larger). Yes I had to buy something, but it wasn't as much as the burger and it's something I like. That was their gift to me for my anniversary of being part of their e-mail list. For my birthday from Arbys I get a free small shake with a purchase of something, not as great as the sandwich, but something.
Rubios' is another restaurant that I am part of their e-club Beach club and for my birthday I got a meal worth up to $7. With that I was able to get a taco plate and a drink.
Red Robin you get a free burger of your choice for your birthday. You need to be part of their Red Royalty club which includes a card, however if you've lost your card they can look you up using your phone number or e-mail. When you first get your card and register it you get a free appetizer (I believe) that you can get within 14 days of registering you card. You also get a free 10th burger if you purchase 9, your 10th is free.
Chevy's is a fun place to go to celebrate your birthday, they give you a Happy Birthday Sombrero and a free entree of your choice. I enjoyed my birthday there last year that I plan on going on my actual birthday this year.
IHOP gives you a free Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity (or something of equal value)
Denny's you get a free Grand Slam
Baskin Robbins you get a buy one get one free, they also do half birthdays
Ben & Jerry's gives you a free small scoop
Golden Spoon you get buy one get two free
Sweet Tomato you get a buy one get one free
Ruby Tuesday you get a free burger
PF Changs you get a free desert
I am also part of the Galleria Mall's e-club and I get a free $5 gift card to the mall. Along with all their postcards that usually have $10 gift card vouchers on them.
These are the places I have received e-mails from and I did sign up for.

March 14th-18th is the Silver Dollar Circuit at the South Point Arena

March 15th-18th is the 46th annual Southern Nevada Sons of Erin St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival in Downtown Henderson on Water Street. The Parade will be on Saturday at 10AM

March 17th the Easter Bunny is coming to many shopping centers. The Galleria Mall is having a a program and arrival for the Easter Bunny in the food court from 11AM-Noon

This so far is all I could find. However for a site that updates daily and has deals and freebies in the valley go to
