Each store will host demos, prod­uct sam­ples, give­aways and an ice cream so­cial. Cus­tomers get a free lim­ited-edi­tion re­us­able bag (with pur­chase) and col­or­ing book for the kids. From 4 to 6 p.m., en­joy free ice cream sun­daes and root beer floats. And what’s a cel­e­bra­tion with­out store spe­cials? They will also be of­fer­ing 50 per­cent off more than 20 of its most pop­u­lar items. The chain has more than 35 lo­ca­tions in Colorado.

SUN­GLASSES

As if you haven’t heard, there will be a to­tal so­lar eclipse on Aug. 21. Denver won’t wit­ness 100 per­cent cov­er­age of the sun, but we’ll come close. Be­fore you look up, be sure to pro­tect your eyes by wear­ing spe­cial ISOcer­ti­fied so­lar eclipse glasses. A reg­u­lar pair of sun­glasses won’t cut it. Many pub­lic li­braries are giv­ing away the free glasses. Jef­fCo Pub­lic Li­brary is of­fi­cially out of its 5,000 pairs, but find other par­tic­i­pat­ing li­braries at space­science.org/ soft­ware/li­braries/ map.php. In ad­di­tion, you can pick up a pair of free Bron­cos-themed eclipse glasses at all 55 Grease Mon­key lo­ca­tions across the Front Range. With such huge de­mand for glasses, no mat­ter where you in­tend to pick up a pair, we sug­gest you call ahead to check avail­abil­ity so you don’t waste a trip.
