Bootown 3D Maze and Scare Crow Express

It’s October, so we can start thinking about Halloween!

Living Social is currently offering a deal on a visit to Bootown at Heritage Square.  Bootown 3D Maze is the largest two-level maze in Colorado.  It’s perfect for kids (and kids at heart), and even offers free admission to toddlers.  Here’s the Living Social deal:

• $26 ($52 value) for four passes to the Bootown 3D Maze and Scare Crow Express
• $13 ($26 value) for two passes to the Bootown 3D Maze and Scare Crow Express

Getting Lost Has Never Been So Much Fun
This Halloween-themed maze is full of colorful décor that’s just a tad bit spooky — meaning it’s age appropriate for even the youngest costume-clad visitors. The Scare Crow Express, a haunted train ride, offers even more excitement for the whole clan.  The attractions are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends through November 2.

A Windfall From Your Windfall Fruit

September 30, 2014

Turn your fruit into brandy!

Do you have apples, peaches, pear, grapes, or other fruit that you can’t use in your yard?  Bring it to Sean Smiley at State-38 Distilling, because he can turn it into brandy!  The fruit doesn’t have to be perfect, because he’ll cut out damaged areas, then mash, boil, ferment, and age it.

For any donation over 10 lbs, State-38 will offer a $5 discount on a bottle of any of their products, plus, you’ll be invited to a private release party when the brandy is ready, and you can have $5 off each bottle purchased at that party.  Seldom is thrift so fun!  State-38 is open from 4-6PM, Tuesday through Saturday.
