Is it just me, or is the Citipass coupon book especially good this year as far as restaurants go? Crema, DrinkHaus, Fresh Blends, Gabby's, Rumours, Zackie's Hot Dogs, Mitchell Delicatessen, McDougal's, Copper Kettle, Whitfield's and Wild Ginger are in there, many of them with buy-one-get-free deals.
I'll use the Kalamata's and Zumi Sushi coupons before you can say penny-pincher; the Regal Cinemas coupons for $6.75 movie tickets have become my go-to holiday gifts; and the $20 discount at Bicyclette Cafe in Mt. Juliet might be just the nudge I've needed to take my kids on a field trip on the Music City Star.
Again, is it just me, or are coupons becoming more socially acceptable? It could be that I'm getting old and I don't give a crap if you think I'm a tightwad. In any case, I've got my shiny new green-covered 2010 Citipass, and I'm ready to paint the town--along with a town of greater or equal value, not to exceed $20.
Citipass books are available for $20 from just about any kid in town. If you don't know any kids, my 4-year-old can totally hook you up.
