It's Tuesday, and the week drags out long and hot ahead of you. Fortunately, there are two deals on tap today that should help see you through. One is one-time only, but the other will run Tuesdays all summer long. See also: Grimaldi's pizzeria opens in Denver Pavilions
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Ronald McDonald House in Denver, McDonald's will be selling 35-cent ice cream cones all day today at participating locations. All proceeds will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Denver. And if you happen to be near Water World, Denver Bronco Danny Trevathan will be serving ice cream cones alongside Water World lifeguards at the McDonald's near the park, at 780 West 84th Avenue in Westminster from 3 to 5 p.m. today.
And starting today, Grimaldi's, the coal-brick-oven pizzeria that opened its first Colorado location at Denver Pavilions in March, will feature Tuesday Tastings: half off all glasses, carafes and bottles of wine (not including house wine or sangria) all summer long. Find more details here.
