Frugal Family: Deals Around Town

Get frugal deals on bowling, movies, synchronized swimming and reggae.

Get the kids away from the TV with two free bowling games a week through Sept. 5! AMF is offering the “Summer Unplugged” program to all kids 16 and under. Parents can register their children and then, each week, they will receive email with game passes for them. You can register at the College Park Alley, which is the closest to Greenbelt. However, if you prefer another location, AMF is all over Maryland.

Sign up to receive weekly email newsletters from Academy 8 Stadium Theaters at Beltway Plaza and get a FREE POPCORN on your next visit. Every Tuesday is now “Guest Appreciation Day,” which means most movies are only $5 all day long. AND as always, all tickets are just $5 before noon every day. Frugal after our own hearts!

Training for the Olympics or really enjoy Ethel Merman movies? How about trying a synchronized swimming class at Hyattsville’s Adelphi Pool? Running June 27 through July 1, the class will meet 7 to 7:45 p.m. in the deep end of the pool. To take the class, you should be comfortable swimming in deep water. Fees? It’s a freebie for members. Others? Only $5 per class, just to cover admission. C’mon Mermaids and Mermen swish those fins over to Adelphi and learn some cool moves while getting cool. Class size may be limited. So if interested, call the pool ASAP at 301.434.1994 to sign up.

Wanna hear some jammin’ reggae this Friday at a free concert in a beautiful park setting?

Tickets may only be picked up the day of the show at either the Carter Barron Box Office or The Washington Post. Limit of four tickets per adult. Visit the Carter Barron Amphitheatre site for details on ticket procedures, the full summer schedule, directions and locations.
