All businesses across the globe have been hurting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but few have taken a harder hit than performance venues like the Pabst Theater Group. With no concerts or live shows to responsibly put on, and few ways to bring their services to people in a shutdown, they've almost all been stuck sitting on their hands since March. 

So if you're looking for a stocking stuffer for this upcoming holiday season, give a gift that keeps on giving by checking out the Pabst Theater Group's holiday curbside pop-up shop and gift card options. 

Opening on Black Friday and running Thursdays through Sundays throughout the holiday season, the curbside pop-up shop offers a number of exclusive items conveniently available to order online. The special holiday shop will be stocked with PTG-themed Christmas ornaments, throwback show posters, commemorative items and – for those of legal age who want a little extra fuel to get through the family Zoom gatherings – tasty beer, wine and seltzer options. (Alcohol options only available for curbside orders.)

All orders are taken online at the Pabst Theater Group's new shop site, where shoppers can choose to either have their purchases shipped or picked up curbside at The Pabst Theater. And as an added bonus, curbside orders over $100 earn free gift wrapping. 

As for shipped orders, purchases should be made by Dec. 15 in order for your potential gifts to make it by Christmas Day. 

But maybe the special someone on your shopping list is more into experiences and memories than physical objects or memorabilia. The Pabst Theater Group has you covered there as well as you can give the gift of an entertaining future with gift cards for the venues. The cards, both in physical card form and new easily sent e-card form, are exclusively for future PTG events (not merchandise), come in different dollar amounts and designs, and offer personalized messages to go with the gift. 

Plus, the giver gets in on the gift card joy as well, as thanks to a ongoing promotion, a $25 gift card purchase earns a bonus $5 gift card, a $50 gift card nets a bonus $10 gift card and a $100 gift card comes with a $25 bonus gift card. The promotion ends on Jan. 2, however, so get your gift cards sooner than later.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
