Throughout my day, I often think of stuff that I would love to share with all of you, but it’s not necessarily deals. But I’m going to do it anyway! I’m planning to share with you some of my favorite things — products, restaurants, services, attractions in and around the Pacific Northwest, throughout the summer.
The Mini Kick Scooter
Last Christmas I was looking for scooters for my two boys (aged 2 & 3.5). While wasting time on Amazon, I stumbled upon the Mini Kick Scooter and started reading the reviews. All raving. The sweet thing is that the child turns the scooter by leaning from side to side, like a bicycle, not turning the handlebars. So the kid can actually ride the thing.
We could not be happier with these scooters. The company states they are made for 3-5 year olds, but Nathan, my 2 year old, has mastered the thing and can buzz around without any problem. My daughter (6) can also ride it, but we have opted to sell her brand-new Razor scooter (death trap!) and just purchased the Maxi Kick Scooter. I know, expensive, but I’m partial to my children actually using the stuff I buy them (and I used Amazon gift cards earned with my Swagbucks).
The Mini Kick Scooters come in tons of different colors (blue, orange, pink, aqua and yellow) and several qualify for free Super Saver Shipping through Amazon.
Brickhouse Pizzeria in NE Portland
One thing you will observe with future “favorite things” posts is that I love pizza and hamburgers. Love them. A few months ago, my mother-in-law took us to Brickhouse Pizzeria on NE 67th & Sandy Blvd in NE Portland. I’ll cut to the chase –delicious pizza. But you need to go for the onion rings. I usually don’t like fried vegetables, but their onion rings are out.of.this.world. Worth a special trip. Just for the rings.
They also serve breakfast. But I suggest you first go for the onion rings. Am I being clear enough?
Right now, Restaurant.com is offering a $25 gift certificate to the Brickhouse Pizzeria for just $3. Your total ordered must be $35 to use the $25 certificate and they will add an 18% gratuity, so you’re looking at $3 for the certificate and about $16.30 to the restaurant.
The Restaurant.com deal ends today (6/24). The certificate expires in one year.
