Just earlier today, the 2008 flyer for the city’s annual self-promotion weekend (October 10th – 13th – “Columbus Day weekend” in a literal calendar sense, as well) was released. As is true in years past you can print out a copy and get 50% off of several area attractions, including the Zoo, the Historical Society and a host of others. As well, save 25% off your bill! at 42 area restaurants. The food discount does exclude beverages, and is good for parties of two, however is still wonderful.
A great ‘secret’ is that these discounts extend to Monday, the 13th. If the weekend might be too crowded for some of these places, one could consider heading out on that day sometime ; to reduce crowds a bit.
