Four Days of Giveaways from Little Beans Cafe: Play, Play All Day!

Have you heard about the hottest new opening in town -- at least for the age 6-and-under set? Trust me when I tell you that Little Beans Cafe (an indoor play space and family cafe located near Elston and Webster) is going to be the place to be for Chicago families this winter.

Little Beans offers the perfect combination of fun for kiddos and comfort and convenience for parents. It is part imaginative play space and part family cafe. Kids can play, run and explore in the customized indoor interactive village (which is a-maz-ing!) while mom and/or dad grab something yummy to eat from the cafe.

Little Beans is really all about creating opportunities for Chicago families to engage in imaginative play together. Drop-ins are $12 per child (plus $7 for each additional sibling). Adults are free. Stop in and let your kids explore this interactive, creative space while you grab an Intelligentsia coffee, goodies from Flirty Cupcakes or one of the many other fantastic menu offerings (seriously, yummy stuff for you and the kiddos).

Want to get in on the fun? For free? Little Beans is giving away a one-month unlimited membership (Value: $85). There are a couple of ways you can enter to win this fab prize: (1) leave a comment on this post (make sure you include your contact info so we can get in touch with you if you win!); (2) Become a Fan of Little Beans Cafe on Facebook (and leave a separate comment telling me that you've done so); and (3) Follow @LittleBeansCafe on Twitter (and leave a separate comment telling me that you've done so).

So three total entries per person. All entries must be received by midnight CST on Friday, January 28, 2011. We will randomly choose and winner and contact that lucky, lucky individual on Monday, January 31, 2011.

Wait, there's more -- lots more! All week long, Self-Made Mom (Sara Fisher), Sassy Moms in the City (Alison Ray) and I are going to be giving away fantastic items from Little Beans as we gear up for our big Media/VIP event at Little Beans Cafe on Friday.

So enter to win this great prize right now and then head over to Self-Made Mom's site tomorrow to see what cool Little Beans item she is giving away to a lucky reader (could even be you!).

Disclosure: I am working with Little Beans Cafe to help promote the grand opening and Media/VIP Event. I am being compensated for my time.

I've been waiting for a family-friendly coffee shop like this to open in Chicago. There are great ones in Portland and I've always been so envious!

Serena said...

My little guys need an outlet that doesn't involve ice, snow or playing Wii! This would be perfect for them!
