Free Glasses from Bubba Gump Shrimp Co, Times Square, NYC #TTPT

Travel Tuesday Pic Tip is a new weekly feature starting on Mama goes BAM. You don’t have to be a blogger, you just have to be someone who wants to share a cool/fun/wacky or weird tip about where you live or some place you’ve been. No tip is too big or too small and I want tips from anywhere in the world! So if you would like to read more or to submit your tip, check out the submission form here.

Every place has a story, and there is someone somewhere waiting to experience the story.

So excited by my FREE glasses. One even lights up!

As I mentioned last week, we headed into Times Square for my husband’s birthday. Their are many many options of family friendly places to have a meal, but not all have the combination of good food and an incredible view overlooking Times Square. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co is affordable and does have that ‘only in New York’ top down view of Times Square (don’t believe me, check out the photo I took from our table!).

BUT, the one thing that is even cooler is that when you order cocktails and children’s drinks, you get to keep the glass! This is very cool, seeing as the cocktail glasses say ‘Times Square, New York’ and could easily double as a beer glass later on. The kiddie drink that my son ordered lights up from the bottom with the push of a button. He absolutely loved it, and couldn’t believe he got to keep it.

Word of advice: We were a bit surprised when the waiter cleared my glass away before dinner was over – the menu clearly said I got to keep it. But when our final cheque came, the other waitress pointed out that we got to go claim new, clean and free glasses in the gift shop.

The drinks were fairly priced as were the meals, so free glasses were definitely a bonus!

I can’t be entirely sure if all cocktails get you a free glass, but from our order I know their are definitely at least 2 adult and 1 kids drinks that do! So make sure to ask your waiter to help you find the drinks that are part of this deal. Glasses like this would easily go for anywhere between $5-10 in souvenir shops.

So if you are looking for a neat souvenir of your time in New York remember this Travel Tuesday Pic Tip!

    Instead of having to make several appointments and trips to your local tanning salon and damaging your skin repeatedly to get the desired glow for
    your skin, with sunless tanning you can achieve the perfect hue of sun kissed brown that you
    want, often in only one visit. Begin at the customer’s
    neck and continue spraying down to their ankles.
    Before hopping in the shower, add some baking soda to a plastic cup or bowl.

    Depending on how much you perspire and how frequently you hit the pool or the shower, your sunless spray tan can fade away
    in as much as three days. Insensitivity may
    trigger those who are advocating pro-life to fight more for what they believe in, and
    as much as possible, it does not need any more controversy
    than it is actually facing right now. There are several renowned cosmetic
    companies in the market, making new tanning products introductions each day.
    The potential for premature wrinkling and skin cancer does little
    to diminish the allure of a healthy, natural looking tan. These are things like lotions
    and micro spray bottles that your clients can use while at home.
    A lot of people recommend getting colored or instant tanners
    so that you can see where the tan is going on and how thickly but I recommend a gradual tanner.
    Your safety and the safety of the people around you will be tantamount when you have a Taser stored somewhere in your

    Its working is simple as intense pulsed light is generated which passes through tubes of fiber-optic.
    When melanin is exposed to UVA, longer wave ultraviolet, it oxidizes or darkens.
    Overexposure to the sun’s rays is considered to be
    highly dangerous and is now proven to cause various ailments, including the deadly
    skin cancer. A flawless and level bronze skin tan fit for the royals is what you can have when an expert
    aesthetician uses a specialized tanning solution spray and covers your body with a thin mist of tanner.
    With that issue aside, my next concern was how it would dry, and how the results
    as far as color looked. The original and most common type of
    fake tan, creams are easy to apply and tend to have a moisturising element too,
    however, some fake tanning creams can have an odd smell
    and can take a while to dry, and beginners to self-tanning may find it difficult to avoid streaks.
    When any material catches fire then certain chemicals release and
    these chemicals react to the retardant. If you have not an issue together with the tanning chemicals, you need to follow that salon but when there seemed to be
    a conflict, continue to look for the chemical balance that is ideal for your skin type.
    Rub all areas of the skin that will have a spray tan applied, and
    fully dry skin after showering. Besides, the cheap electronic
    components can offer the platform for the company long research
    and innovation.

    you have them done a few days before the event they will still
    look good. You’ve probably seen them on the telly before now, and realised that you can even buy them
