Make it Worth it: Rapid City Girls’ Day Out

Make it Worth it: Rapid City Girls’ Day Out

Written on June 17th, 2021

The Black Hills Coupon Book retails for $20, and you get over 200 exclusive offers around the Black Hills. A question we hear a lot is whether or not it’s worth the expense, and our answer is always a resounding yes! To prove it’s a great buy, we’re starting a “make it worth it” blog series. From family fun to honey-do lists and fun days out with your girlfriends, we’ll cover all kinds of ideas and itineraries based around the coupons you’ll find in the book. Each post is guaranteed to get your $20 in value — and then some!

Before you head out on the town, meet your girlfriends at Harriet & Oak downtown where you can buy one 16 oz. latte and get the second 50% off. With five milk options and over a dozen flavors to choose from, your options are endless. 

Once you’re properly caffeinated, start your day off with a bang — literally — when you sign up for a ladies handgun class with the pros at Responsibly Armed, LLC. With your Black Hills Coupon Book, you can buy one class, get one free! Normally classes are $50, so using this coupon already paid for the entire book in one go. You’ll learn how to safely handle a handgun and then hit the firing range to put your new skills to the test and build confidence. Classes are held on Saturdays, usually from 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., and you’ll need to sign up in advance on their website

After your class, head back downtown for lunch. Firehouse Brewing Company is one of the oldest breweries in the state, and they have a great menu to match their great brews. From great pub style appetizers and burgers to hearty favorites like rancher’s pie or fish tacos, they’ll have something for everyone in your party. If you can’t decide, try the Spontaneous Heating Gumbo; apparently Rachael Ray from the Food Network loved it! Enjoy their laid back atmosphere inside, or soak up the sun on their outdoor patio. The best part? When you buy one entree, you’ll score the second one at half off with your Black Hills Coupon Book.

No girls’ day out is complete without a little shopping, and downtown has plenty to offer without having to move your car. Start at Heartfelt Embroidery where you can pick up a personalized bag of your choosing and get the second 25% off. Now that you have somewhere to stash all of your goodies, grab a Dionis goat milk skincare item and snag the second for 25% off as well.

If you have kids in your life — your own, nieces or nephews, grandkids, or kids of friends — a stop in Kicks and Giggles downtown is a must. They carry the top kids brands in clothing, toys, books, and accessories, and are happy to recommend the perfect purchase if you need ideas. Even if you don’t have kids, they carry a great selection of gifts anyone can enjoy such as soft and fluffy robes, skincare, and bath products. Take your Black Hills Coupon Book and save $5 off a purchase of $20 or more.

Round out your shopping with a visit to the Dahl Art Center. Their galleries have rotating exhibits of local and national artists, and often showcase the work of local college and high school students as well. The exhibits are free to visit, and with your Black Hills Coupon Book you’ll save 10% off an item in the gift shop. Everything in the gift shop is made by local artists, and your purchase supports the Rapid City Arts Council programming, performing arts, education, and local artists.

Finish off a great day on the town at The Rushmore Hotel & Suites, where you have three great choices for dinner and drinks: Privé, Enigma, or 445 Lounge. At Privé and 445 Lounge you’ll find simple but delicious locally inspired cuisine in a fun atmosphere, and with your Black Hills Coupon Book you’ll get a free appetizer with the purchase of two martinis or two bourbon drinks. For a more intimate space where you can wind down and enjoy a beautifully crafted meal, head to Enigma. Their menu offers a global twist on American classics that will excite your taste buds, not to mention their desserts will be the perfect sweet note to end your day. Buy one entree and get the second 50% off your Black Hills Coupon Book.

After all is said and done, a day on the town with Black Hills Coupon Book means you’ll have a great time, but also save some serious cash. So what are you waiting for?
