More Recent Cancellations & Closures (see category lists below for a complete listing): 

Applebee's Delta Sonic Holiday Promotions:  On October 8, Delta Sonic announced that they will not issue the Delta Sonic and Applebee's promotion in 2020 as they have done in past years.  We're sorry to learn of this but ask our members to be understanding of the decision in light of the capacity restrictions faced by Applebee's restaurants due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please patronize both Applebee's and Delta Sonic!

Finger Lakes Beer Festival at Watkins Glen, originally scheduled for  October 30-31, has officially been postponed until approximately the same time in 2021.

Great Wolf Lodge Boston is closed through November 24 and accepting reservations beginning November 25 (last updated 11/9).

Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls,Ontario is currently closed and taking reservations from March 1 onwards (last updated 11/9).

Hertz has filed for bankruptcy and we advise members to use extreme caution in using Hertz at this time because of issues surrounding the filing.  While some discounts are still available with online bookings, we encourage members to seek rentals through either Budget or Avis for the foreseeable future.   We no longer promote Hertz to our membership (in part because of the millions paid to executives during bankruptcy filings) and because they are reducing their fleet by over 34% by year's end which could lead to significant vehicle shortages at some locations.

McArdle's Restaurant in Fairport is OPEN for takeout, delivery ($5 flat delivery), patio seating, and now indoor seating.  Offering the best fish fry in Rochester.  But please note that due to the current COVID-19 situation and the requirement that restaurants limit their capacity, McAardle's will be suspending their mBB discount offer for the near future.  Please check back wit us once this situation moderates.

Movie Theaters.  AMC, Cinemark (Tinseltown), and Magic Johnson have announced many of their theaters nationwide are open.  Regal Cinemas in NY and CA are now open or reopening soon though many, including Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse are very wisely postponing openings at this time (shame on AMC).  The Little Theatre continues to offer live streaming options for several movies.

On October 17, Governor Cuomo announced NY State will allow theaters outside NYC to reopen beginning October 23 in areas with positivity rates below 2% on a 14 day moving average.  Audiences will be restricted to 25% of capacity with a maximum of 50 people per screen. Masks will be required and there will be assigned seating to ensure social distancing.  As of October 19, 12 counties (including Rockland and Orange, did not meet this criteria).   Shame on AMC Webster and Cinemark Greece for flouting the Governor's restrictions on reopening safely.  Our advice:  stream until it's safe to return to the theaters.

The Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular starring the Rockettes is cancelled for 2020 (first reported 8/4).

It is not a matter of IF, but rather WHEN, and we are working diligently with the touring agents to solidify new dates. This of course includes the carryover 2019-2020 Season productions of CATS and DEAR EVAN HANSEN as well. We do not yet have new dates to announce for our 2020-2021 season (which will now become our 2021-2022 Season), but we will share updated information and next steps as they become available (updated 12/2).

Universal Studios Hollywood has cancelled their Halloween Horror Nights for 2020 and the park remains closed.   While Universal Studios Hollywood remains closed, all date-specific 1-day, 2-day, and Universal Express tickets purchased for a date when the park is closed have automatically been extended an extra year to be valid for visits any day through December 16, 2021.  If you hold a ticket for use during this closure period and are unable to reschedule, Universal Studios Hollywood will honor a full refund.
