Forget dinner and a movie. For a more interactive experience (and a lot more excitement), there's dinner and a show. Now, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts has partnered with several Fort Lauderdale restaurants to offer theatergoers discounts, freebies, and perks -- just by showing your ticket stub from the playhouse.
What's best about this offer? The ticket stub does not have to be from that day's performance -- so if you have a hankering for dinner at, say, 15th Street Fisheries three days later -- you're covered as long as you still have those tickets down in the bottom of your handbag somewhere (we knew there was a good reason to be a paper hoarder). What happens if you cleaned out all those loose receipts and can't find that stub from last evening's performance? Just mention that you're a Broward Center patron and you'll still score the deal!
This is a two-year program that features rotating deals, but the current participating restaurants (and their offers) are:
15th Street Fisheries: 20 percent off the entire check, not including tax and gratuities.
America's Backyard: first cocktail free and 25 percent off all food purchases before midnight.
Bimini Boatyard: complimentary bottle of house wine with purchase of an entrée, (one bottle per table please).
Chima Steak House: 20 percent off rodizio dinner.
The Chimney House: complimentary glass of sangria with purchase of entrée.
The Dubliner Irish Pub: 20 percent off the entire check, not including tax and gratuities.
Grille 401: $20 off bottles of wine that are normally priced $40 or higher.
Tarpon Bend: complimentary appetizer with purchase of entrée
YOLO: complimentary dessert with entrée
