5 Things to Buy on Presidents Day

Broadway tickets

OK, so maybe these require some special circumstances that just happen to put you in the New York metropolitan area around this time of year. If you're already there, however, you're running smack into the post-Tony Awards offseason when the languishing shows close and the blockbusters prepare for their national tours.

Thanks to sites such as Playbill (registration required), Theatermania and Broadway Box, tickets to shows including Picnic, Kinky Boots, The Other Place, Motown The Musical, Once, Breakfast At Tiffany's and Who's Afraid of Virginal Woolf are available for 35% to 40% off. No, you likely won't get a break on seeing ScarJo in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, but if you're still looking to see mainstay musicals including The Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys or Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, deep discounts are available without hitting the TKTS booth.

The best part? It's not tourist season. There'll still be folks in Times Square and at the M&M store, but with the tree long gone from Rockefeller Center and the hansom cabs having pulled their last Valentine's couples, it's a great time to enjoy the city's relative silence until half the suburbs jam Fifth Avenue and its bars for the St. Patrick's Day parade.
