If you're behind on the gifts, like most Scene staffers, here are a couple great ideas. Both also work well for those hard-to-please people who already have everything.
If you're downtown today, use the uber-convenient gift card drive-through PlayhouseSquare has set up right on Euclid Avenue in front of the theatres. You don't even have to get out of your car!
Elves will take your order for $10 to $100 PlayhouseSquare gift cards and deliver them instantly through your car window. The Elves will be out until 7 p.m. today.
This is a first for PlayhouseSquare and it's such a good idea—we hope they do it next year too.
If your gift list includes foodies, stop by one of the great independent restaurants we have and pick up The Deck. The stack of 52 cards gives the bearer discounts (typically $10 off a $30 meal) at 50 independent establishments like Flying Fig, Taste, and Luxe for only $29.95.
The Deck comes with a bonus: The two jokers can be used at any one of the participating establishments once you've identified your favorites. And it makes a good-looking gift.
