With Thanksgiving just around the corner, restaurants and specialty shops around town find their own ways to celebrate and honor this food-centric holiday. From special dinners, ways to make your dinner home easier, and week-long social media promotions, there seems to be something for everyone.
ChoLon launches Week of Thanks to celebrate the community and its customers. This promotional campaign will show appreciation to its loyal diners. Each morning, beginning on Sunday, November 19 through Wednesday 11/21, a unique daily offer will be revealed on ChoLon's Facebook page and website to be redeemed in the restaurant that same day. The word is some of these daily specials will involve getting 50% off small bites, from 5pm to close. Guests will have the opportunity to either redeem the deal for themselves or contribute the corresponding value back to the community. At the end of the week ChoLon will present the total charitable contributions generated, to the LoDo Cares Holiday Project, a collaboration between the Lower Downtown Association and the LoDo District, to provide aid to those in need this season.
