Cheap Shutdown Update: Cinebarre and Starbucks

October 9, 2013

1383180_724636870896083_939682856_nBy now, most every news outlet has covered Starbucks’ government-shutdown-inspired Pay It Forward deal where you get a free tall brewed coffee when you buy a coffee for someone else (good through Friday), but most may have missed the shutdown deal being offered by the movie theater Cinebarre in Mountlake Terrace.

The cinema/restaurant/bar is offering free pizzas to furloughed government workers with identification that shows they work for the federal government. No purchase necessary, dine-in only. You’ll still have to pay to see a movie, but it’s a nice gesture. If you want to see a movie and save more money, go on Tuesday night when you can see any movie for $5. Combine the two deals and you get a free pizza and inexpensive movie for half of the a movie’s regular price.

Here are some other things you can do with your abundant spare time today:

THE ALL IMPORTANT FAMILY CONVERSATION: ELDER CARE–Figuring out what to do with your elderly parents is never fun, but now that you’ve got time, it couldn’t hurt to put it to good use by starting the process of figuring out what to do with a presentation at the Northeast branch of the Seattle Public Library at 1 p.m.

EAT OUT…IN YOUR GARDEN–Local landscape designer and educator Emily Bishton teaches how to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs fashionably while avoiding plant disease and other problems from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Brightwater Center (22505 St. Rt. 9 SE) in Woodinville. The event is free, but you’ll need to RSVP.
