A thoughtful Father's Day present for any dad who loves Denny's

Posted on Mon Jun 14 2010


Father's Day is this Sunday, and Denny's is celebrating with a Facebook application that lets you send a free (yes, that's the key word) ice-cream float to Dad. The app lets you "customize a special card just for Dad" and send it to him via Facebook. (You can also print it or e-mail it to Dad if he's one of those parents who thankfully is not on Facebook.) Using the coupon inside of the card, Dad can choose from one of three summer flavors: Cherry Coke, Root Beer or the new, Independence Day Red, White and Blueberry Float. Yum, think we'll take the later. Burp.

Disaster gifts a great way to tell someone you're scared for them

Posted on Wed Jun 17 2009


It's "Dads and Grads" season again. Time to find a Father's Day gift or a little something for that nephew who just snared his B.A. in cultural anthropology and will be lucky to land a job at Jiffy Lube. Yes, the recession has cast a long shadow over the whole season. Then again, in a disastrous economy, why not get a disaster-related gift? According to the recent marketing e-letter from Bethpage, N.Y.-based Ice-Qube Preparedness, its handy little crisis kits "are the first emergency kits designed to make excellent gifts." The Ice Qube Starter Kit ($19.99) equips your favorite grad with a thermal blanket, flashlight, tooth brush and a face mask. Want something snazzier for Dad? The Ice-Qube Essential ($575.00) comes complete with everything from first-aid supplies to a fire extinguisher to an emergency radio. At least you can bet that nobody else at the party will have brought the present you did. Now, if only they made a Recession Survival Kit (résumés, a few interview neckties and a 60-pack of Ramen).
