Half-priced martinis Saturday night
Here's a good excuse to stick around downtown Saturday night: Jeff Ruby's is offering half-price martinis
after the 8 p.m. showing of "Mamma Mia!" at the Aronoff Center! Sure it's a marketing schtick, but hey, one I won't argue with. Too bad the deal wasn't on Tuesday night, when I saw the show. LOVED IT! And that's a lot of song and dance. (Even Jackie thought it was yummy
!) But I can't get those dang ABBA songs out of my head.... (PS, the show goes till about 10:30 p.m.)
