Just saying the word “elf” gets you 20 percent off at kitchy toystore Big Fun.
Free gingerbread cookies in the above-ground basement that is Phoenix Coffee to anyone that mentions anything from the movie — anything at all. Though you may be able to quote the entire script verbatim, however, customers are limited to one free cookie per person, not per quote.
There are heaps of other ways to get deals at Coventry’s Village Holiday Festival celebration today, until midnight. Ugly christmas sweaters and movie trivia are among the most helpful, but some places require only for you to show up to save money. For instance, for the identical triplets on your buy-list, American Apparel offers buy 2 get 1 free on same style items. And for those of you that bond with your kids over drink specials at local watering holes, for today only there is free popcorn and soda for kiddos at the B Side Liquor Lounge, with happy hour until 9 p.m. Utrecht Art Supplies is holding specials and sales on materials along with craft demonstrations and workshops throughout the day, as well — that’s likely where you’ll find this blogger and her 4-year-old.
Throw on your ugliest, shiniest, flashiest, most decadent Christmas sweater (or four … it’s cold out there and the only thing better than layering is ugly christmas sweater and alcohol layering to keep the shivers away) and run along with the Ugly Sweater Bar Crawl gang to a slew of Coventry bars and restaurants offering deals and specials. Locations include B Side Liquor Lounge & Arcade, City & East Hookah Bar, Grog Shop, La Cave Du Vin, Panini’s Coventry & Winking Lizard.
If none of those places interest you, might I point out that there will be Fireball. Cheap Fireball. The crawl starts at 8 p.m. at B Side.
There is also a free show to anyone wearing a Christmas sweater at the Grog Shop at 10 p.m. and drink specials all day long. The Commonwealth, Oldboy, and Gomez Addams will all hit the stage tonight, hopefully in awesome sweaters.
I’ll be milling around a little bit this afternoon. See if you can find me while I find Coventry.
