It's a steal to see an off-Broadway show

As New York City slogs through a winter of economic discontent, the city's tourism arm has launched a new campaign to boost ticket sales at more than 30 off-Broadway performances. The "On the House" deal, good Feb. 15-March 1, offers two-for-one discounts for such limited-engagement shows asThe Third Story, starring Kathleen Turner, as well as such long-running standards as Stomp and Altar Boyz.

The city has also extended its winter Restaurant Week through Feb. 27; three-course meals at more than 150 participating restaurants cost $24.07 for lunch and $35 for dinner. Information:
