Fresno PARCS Activites post at

Seems common sense, but I hadn't stumbled upon this resource for free local activities for youth in Fresno. Go figure, its the city of Fresno's Event Calendar. Guess I should spend more time on that site to see all that it has to offer. For a look at some local holidays events click HERE.

Cookie Decorating Jamboree

Tuesday, tomorrow, is an activity where you can decorate and eat cookies! The organizers request you bring store bought drinks to share. Pre-registration is required at the site. It is free for ages 5-15. From 3pm-4pm

Contact Alfonso Hernandez for more information 696-8009

Lafayette Neighborhood Center 1516 E. Princeton. Fresno 80% off coupons offers coupons for purchase. For example, normally you can pay $10 for a $25 off a purchase of $35 with and 18% gratuity. So for about $26 you get a $35 meal for two. Each restaurant has its own conditions, but the deal I just mentioned is pretty common. Right now with the promo code SANTA you can receive 80% off the coupons so for example, I just got a coupon for 80 cents (normally $4) for $10 off a $20 meal at the local restaurant, The Thai Gem in Clovis. We're going out for my birthday :). Seems worth it to me. So enjoy the deal with some friends that are home for the holidays! Click HERE to check out restaurants and coupons available in your area, just don't forget the promo! The coupons are good for one year.
