Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets to Dueling Pianos at one of two locations (a $20 value). Performances are held Friday and Saturday nights; doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the sonic showdown beginning at 8:30 p.m. If you make a dinner reservation with this Groupon (offered from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.), you'll also receive a complimentary appetizer of homemade chips and dip. Purchase one of the following Groupons:
- AMC Plaza, Vaughan, Ontario
- Longo's Plaza, Oakville, Ontario
The high-energy piano throw-downs pit two well-versed pianists and their four nimble hands in the ultimate battle for spontaneous musical domination. Two sets of ivories face one another, fully equipped with microphones and fun-loving musicians who'll take requests from the audience and trade instruments, insults, and spouses, all while performing an eclectic mix of tunes on command. A full dinner menu is available before the show ($29.99 per person) in addition to a show menu available after 9 p.m. If you make your reservation for dinner before the show, you'll get a complimentary appetizer serving of the chips and dip, loaded with fresh, house-made potato chips and a signature sauce in which, it is advised, the chips are to be dipped (a $7.99 extra value).
The lively shows often evolve into interactive sing-alongs, so bring your adventurous spirit and etiquette advisor for a night on the town. Call ahead for reservations.
