Froyo Swirl – buy one get one free coupon (valid until Feb. 28th)

Froyo Swirl (820 Homer Street) in Yaletown is a healthy frozen yogurt joint. I personally haven’t tried it out myself yet, but I found a 2-for-1 coupon for their signature Froyo Swirl. The concept is simple and similar to Scoop on West 4th: take healthy, plain frozen yogurt and add toppings including blueberries, mango, oreo cookies and more! Even though it doesn’t say so directly on the coupon, the offer apparently expires on February 28th. If you end up going, let me know how it is!

Yaletown Shopping Night (Friday December 19)

Similar to the Gastown Shop Hop a few weeks ago, Yaletown is holding a shopping night on December 19th from 5pm to 9pm. Celebrate the holiday season with 36 of Yaletown’s finest retailers and restaurants and spend the evening shopping for yourself or loved ones. From looking at the list below, it seems like most of the deals are around 20% off – which isn’t that much but if you had your eye on something in Yaletown anyway, this Friday would be the night to buy it! Skimming the list below, perhaps you can stop by Section 3 for 2 for 1 appies and drinks after you shop? Or get your hair done at Blo at 15% off before heading off to a fancy Christmas party? I would recommend clicking on the map below and printing it out to bring with you.
