Theater buffs and foodies alike better hightail-it to New York City this month to take advantage of deep discounts on some of the Big Apples best shows and restaurants. Now through February 7 as part of the citys bi-annual Restaurant Week fete, 260 of the fanciest eats in town are hocking three-course prixe-fixe menus starting at just $24.07 (for lunch) and $35.00 (for dinner). The roster of drool-worthy participants includes Gramercys Craftbar, Fig & Olive in the fashionable Meatpacking District, and Smith & Wollensky Midtowns prime steakhouse. After indulging your taste buds without breaking the bank, take your leftover cash to the theater. NYC & Co., the citys marketing and tourism organization, is hocking two-for-one tickets to over 20 different Off-Broadway shows running from February 8-28.
The three-week promotion, dubbed On the House, includes a BOGOF pass to established draws at theaters all around the city, like Avenue Q, STOMP (pictured), and Naked Boys Singing!, along with limited-engagement productions directed by Ethan Hawke and starring veteran actors like John Lithgow. Reservations opened last week, so make yours now before the discounts sell out! Buy tickets at www.nycgo.com/onthehouse or each theater's box office using promotional code HOUSE.
