Bday Present Idea for Sister

Sasha360 | | Mar 5, 2009 06:31 AM

Ok, I never got my sister a present for christmas so I need to get a
really nice combined present for her birthday and xmas... $150 is my max, but I'd rather it be $125 or under.

I would like to get her either gift certificates to 2 or more restaurants. Or, a certificate to a restaurant plus find something else around there that could be an after dinner activity...or a shop to go in and buy something at...nothing big just a nice addition. The problem, I don't live in Chicago and so have to choose everything blind.

Her favorite foods are "brunch, cake, and veggies" so below are my current ideas pulled from the boards. Also, in terms of after brunch ideas she is in theater, likes blueberry muffins, her favorite store is the Brown Elephant and her favorite drink is coffee.

Also, feel free to suggest something else that you think would be better. Depending on how easy it is to get a certificate to the restaurant itself I may just get a visa giftcard and create fake certificates explaining what the funds are for.

Thanks in Advance!

Restaurant Ideas:
1.David Burke's Primehouse downtown in the James Hotel in River North
for American Dim Sum Brunch from 11-2 Sunday All you can eat, 7
courses, plus you can ask for seconds of anything you want and you can
add all you can drink (mimosas, etc.)

2. Sweets & Savories Sunday Brunch from 10-2, 3 course plus a drink

3. NOT Brunch per se.. Lulu Dim Sum for their "Munch a Bunch" on
Saturday & Sunday 11:30 - 3:00 or Monday & Tuesday 5:00 - 9:30

4. The Bongo Room - Offers partial portions so you can go for brunch and for example get orders of 1 pancake instead of 3 so you can try more varieties.
