WPXI’s Thingy.

Have you all seen this?

WPXI has a thingy (I’m too lazy today to come up with a better word, so the word of the day is “thingy”) where you can buy $50 gift certificates to local establishments for $25 a pop.


They sell out pretty quickly, at least the more popular ones do, however there are some good ones still available right now.

You can get a $50 gift card to Smithfield Cafe — if you can ignore the smoky, Italian mob, old people atmosphere, you can get a fabulous double decker Reuben there.

Casablanca Bistro and Sammy’s Corned Beef, both of which are downtown, are also still available.

You’re welcome.

    If I get a Smithfield Cafe Certificate can I spend it on booze next parade day? “Guaranteed Irish” is awesome.

    Pretty good deal! I know WDVE does this pretty often as well.
