Today should be the day of my biweekly trek to the Santa Monica Farmers Market, but this month's crazy schedule hasn't abated much, and I told my partner-in-crime Deena that I might not be able to make it today -- which is kind of a bummer, because it's her birthday, and some of our other friends were planning on going down there with us and doing a nice lunch.
And you all know how much I hate missing a good ladies' lunch.
So in hopes that I can finish everything on my plate by 10 AM, I'm cutting a few corners - beginning with the following press release. I don't usually reprint these verbatim, but this one is short and sweet - in more ways than one:
What: Baskin-Robbins 31 Cent Scoop Night. 31 cents per 2.5oz scoop – any flavor!
Where: All Baskin-Robbins locations nationwide
When: Wednesday, April 28 from 5pm – 10pm
Why: To serve those who serve others: Baskin-Robbins has partnered with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation who support families and co-workers of fallen firefighters.
The Inside Scoop: Looking for a flavor to try? Fan favorite Cotton Candy is April’s Flavor of the Month. This pink and purple Cotton Candy-flavored ice cream is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
It's times like this when I wish I didn't have to watch my weight. Maybe some day, BR will make a sugar-free, non-fat, low-carb flavor. In the meantime, I have a feeling my husband and daughter will be there tonight!
I also want to call your attention to a great deal on membership in the Zimmer Children's Museum, through Savvy Savings, which arranges discounts on great family venues and kicks some of the proceeds over to local preschools.
The Zimmer is one of those places I wish had been around when my daughter was little. It's located on Museum Row on Wilshire, and its hands-on exhibits are not only fun, but educational for young children (it was voted "Best Museum" in Nickelodeon's GoCity Parent Guide last year).
It's the perfect place to take your kids on a rainy day like today - and if you use this affiliate link, you can purchase an annual membership for just $40 (that's a savings of 47%). But there are a couple of catches: The first is that 50 people have to purchase the deal in order for the discounted rate to set in (at this writing, 27 people have done so -- so we're well on our way).
The second catch is that this deal is only available until midnight tomorrow (April 29). So if you are looking for something fun to do with your younger children today (and the rest of the year!), do check it out now! If you -- like me -- are no longer in the playdate arena, please pass this information on to your friends who are.
DISCLOSURE: If you purchase an annual membership using this affiliate link, I will earn a small commission as part of the Clever Girls Collective'S Clever 1000. However, I don't have any kind of interest in Baskin-Robbins other than the fact that I love their ice cream and love a bargain even more- especially when it benefits our firefighters.
