Over the weekend: date night, family outing, or pamper yourself

It can be difficult to have fun in the winter--especially with the kind of snow we get in Michigan.  Finding entertainment around here can be further complicated if you are on a budget.  However, this weekend is filled with various activities for daters, families, or individuals who want to treat themselves to a little pampering--without breaking the bank!  Most of these are in the metro-Detroit area, but you'll spot a couple in Ann Arbor as well. I'll be sure to update the list as I find out about more deals, coupons, and events.   

Quick Note:  Many of these deals come via Living Social or Groupon.  If you are interested in any of these deals, you will need to register on these sites--if you haven't already. Also note that sites like Living Social and Groupon have a constantly rotating stream of deals and coupons--so the deals that I have listed below won't last long.  Except where noted, you can take advantage of these deals for months to come...however, you MUST purchase the deal before they disappear from the Living Social or Groupon website.  They usually last a few days on the site before they are replaced with another deal.  

Nibbles and Nuts
$10 for $20 deal
If you want to pick up a gift basket full of nuts, small cakes/cookies, then this might be the deal for you.  Or you could temporarily kick that New Year's resolution to the curb and pick up a little treat for yourself. Farmington Hills location or online:   via Living social.
