There are some great family deals currently available. Here’s where you can get in on them.
What’s the Deal: $8 for tickets to a baseball game. See the Nats play the pirates on May 17 or 18 for 50% off.
LivingSocial DC Family Edition: $150 for a pizza party for up to 20 kids at select Potomac Pizza locations. When you consider how much kids parties can end up costing these days, this is a great deal.
Mamapedia: Just $4 for admission to storytime at The Kreeger Museum. And don’t forget to select a school to receive a donation of 5% of your purchase. See the website for details on both the offer and their Savings for Schools program.
Plum District: $150 for a Two-Day Football Camp with Redskins Great Charles Mann, 7/16-17. This is a 50% discount from the regular price.
Certifikid: $25 for a Ticket to Massanutten WaterPark. We visited last summer, and both kids and parents had a fantastic time.
And here’s one for everybody, because who doesn’t love ice cream — particularly when it’s FREE? I just discovered this no-brainer of an offer from Homerun.com: Get a FREE soft-serve ice cream cone at ACKC. That’s right, FREE! Once you get your voucher, it is good through the end of March at two area locations — 14th Street NW and Alexandria. As far as I can tell, there’s no catch; it’s simply a terrific, delicious deal.
LivingSocial’s DC Family Edition has a new deal today: $13 for Two Tickets to the Capital Home & Garden Show (that’s 50% off). Seeing this deal prompted me to check out the event, and it’s apparently a family-friendly expo, with activities for kids, including an appearance by Clifford the Big Red Dog from PBS. Tickets for kids ages 6-12 are just $3, and it’s free for children 5 and under. More information about the show is available on the website.
I’m psyched about this offer from What’s the Deal, since it’s for one of our go-to restaurants for dining out with the kids. For $15 get $30 worth of BBQ and drinks at Old Glory in Georgetown. You might know this place best from your days of M Street bar-hopping, but if you go for lunch or on the early side of dinner, you’ll see it from a whole other (sober) perspective, one that’s more than suitable for a family meal.

If you’re looking for a unique gift idea or a wonderful keepsake, check out Plum District’s “Everywhere” deal: $97 for a custom-made T-shirt blanket ($175 value). And, no, this isn’t a cheaper version of a Snuggie. It’s a specially designed quilt using your favorite T-shirts and other wearables. My husband has a blanket like this that his grandmother made for him, and it’s a something to cherish, made literally from the fabric of his childhood.
Finally, you can still get in on Eversave’s deal that I posted about on Facebook and Twitter last week: Get 55% off a weekend stay on the Chesapeake Bay. It’s just $145 for a night at Bob Pascal’s St. Michaels Harbour Inn, Marina and Spa, a resort that gets great reviews on Trip Advisor. If you book today, use the promo code VALENTINE at checkout and get an additional $4 off.
