Is there anything as cool as Pee Wee Herman?
January 1, 2011 8:24 PM   Subscribe

My plan to give my sister tickets to the Pee Wee Herman show on Broadway for Xmas failed (snowstorm, etc.). What equivalently awesome "experience" gift could I give her instead?

My sis and I grew up on the Pee Wee Herman Show, and I was so excited to take her to see Pee Wee on Broadway, but her flight was delayed several days because of the storm, and we didn't get to go see the show.

I love the idea of giving an experience as a present, rather than a thing. Does the hivemind have any ideas for an alternate "experience gift" for this child of the 80s? Her other current interests include comics, typography, motion graphics, and The Dog Whisperer. New York/tri-state area would be a bonus.

It's an item purchase rather than an experience, but my friends who are into the Pee Wee musical are also really excited about getting custom-made Muppets; you can make one that resembles her!

Is she in NYC now? Or will be?
