Especially for the outdoor enthusiasts in your life. 

If you've never been to Cabela's in East Hartford, GO NOW. It is a massive store that attracts the outdoor enthusiast, from the casual fisherman  to hunters to the RV crowd. Full disclosure time--My sister-in-law manages the store! They have an indoor mountain, and a pond stocked with live fish, in the middle of the store. If you have kids, bring them there, they will have so much fun while you shop.

I was talking to my sister-in-law earlier today, and she mentioned something that I am not eligible for, due to me being a relative, but YOU are. This Saturday, December 12th, if you're one of the first 250 people in line outside the store by 8AM, and you're 18 years of age or older, you could get hooked up with sweet giveaways. I'm not talking about a koozie or a magnet, how about a Savage Arms A17 Rimfire rifle valued at $399.99. They're going to give away 5 of them! A $300 pair of Nikon binoculars. A Cabela's Boot and Wader Dryer. Plus Cabela's cash cards worth up to $100. Cool huh? Just for waking up and standing in line, and it's way past Black Friday.

Also, Santa is going to be at the East Hartford Cabela's at 11AM, and if you've ever considered ice fishing during these cold Winter months, both Saturday and Sunday, Cabela's is bringing in experts that will answer any question you may have, and get you the right gear for your frozen lake excursion.
