It starts tomorrow, so here's hoping you've readied your plan of attack. We're talking, of course, about the Houston Ballet's 38th Annual Nutcracker Market, the four-day holiday shopping extravaganza November 8-11 that brings 270 vendors and all sundry of giftable wares (antiques! Pies! Candles! Clothes!) to the 540,000 square-foot NRG Center.
The yearly spectacular draws more than 100,000 shoppers—more than the entire population of Sugar Land—making parking unthinkable. Enter Lyft. Today, the ride share announced a series of promo codes specifically for Nutcracker shoppers starting tomorrow, November 8: NUTCRACKER grants a $10 credit for a regular Lyft ride, and NUTCRACKERVIP is good for a $40 credit for Lyft Lux rides.
Moreover, Lyft drivers will pick up packages from the designated pick-up/valet area and are prepared to accommodate vehicle space for as many purchases as riders can make. And if when you find yourself needing a break from the frenzy but aren't quite ready to call it a day, Lyft invites you to its lounge in the middle of the hubbub at Hall E in the NRG lobby. Godspeed.
