Exclusive Coupon Code for Women’s Designer Shoes

I recently helped build a new website for a Baltimore shoe store that specializes in large-size women’s designer shoes:

In an effort to recoup some of the development costs–and to clear their shelves to make room for new inventory–they’re offering a deal to local shoppers this weekend.

All winter shoes will be on sale in the store through Sunday for 40% off the listed price. That’s right… even if the shoes are already marked down below cost, you can take another 40% off. This is an in-store sale.

Rather not to drive to Baltimore? You can order from the website instead. Just enter coupon code BC15 during checkout, and receive 15% off your order (no exclusions). Order over $75, and shipping is free.

BarefootTess is located at: 1421 Clarkview Road, Suite 110 (Baltimore).

I’d love to hear if anybody goes there for the sale–and what you think.

Play Pool All Night at Hard Times For $7

Every Sunday and Monday, from 5pm to 2am, you can play pool at Hard Times for just $7.

No additional purchase necessary.

We stopped playing there because it can get pretty smoky; but come February (when the statewide smoking ban goes into effect), we’ll definitely start going again.

REMINDER: Pool is free at Hard Times every day from 11am to 5 pm (minimum $8 purchase per person).
