Parrot birthday party and more free family events and deals

Since this weekend is looking like a mixed bag of spring rain and winter chills, here's a mixed post of Chicago-area family events and deals to carry you through:


(Thanks to Mom Mail for the event info; it's an email list I recommend parents subscribe to.)


  • You might be able to get something free at Totsy today with this $15 coupon code: 15credit. Thanks, Money Saving Mom! (Looks like the site is getting slammed right now.)
  • Buy a handmade kid or baby hat for 75 percent off. So cute!
  • Print a coupon for 50 percent off one regular price item today or tomorrow at Michael's.
  • Add a $10 off $50 coupon to your Dominick's card on Just for U. (If your Wednesday Tribune is still lingering in the recycle bin, you can clip one there, too.
  • Today's Groupon is a half-price membership to the Notebaert Nature Museum. You MIGHT be able to use your card to get into other science museums free as well -- technically the reciprocal program is not supposed to be used for museums within 90 miles of one another but I have experienced leniency on this.
  • Did you sign up for a coupon for free Mission Tortillas chips last week? It's time to enter your email addressto claim it. I printed mine, but I don't know where I'm going to use it because many stores refuse to accept Internet printables for completely free products.
  • Get a $3 credit to DealPulp today simply by inviting a friend to join. At first I thought this was no big deal because all the daily deal sites offer bounties, but then I realized how this one is different: Your friend doesn't even have to sign up in order for you to get the credit.
  • Sign up for free cheese fondueat The Melting Pot, which has locations in Chicago, Downer's Grove, Buffalo Grove and Schaumburg. (Thanks to SwagGrabber for the tip.)
  • On Tippr, get 51 percent off any service at Salon Moka. OK, salon deals are a dime a dozen, but I went to this Wicker Park salon and really liked it. I felt it was friendly and unintimidating.
