O.K., so you forgot to get a practical gift for your best friend, boyfriend or maybe even yourself. Here's one more chance to make up for it. How about a bargain oil change and a bit of craft beer.

There are three locations for this great little Valvoline oil change deal so one of them should be pretty easy for you to find. Only $19 and you'll be back on the road.

The next stop - Broken Bottle Brewery for one of two choices:

Either $11 for two beer flights - that's a 2 ounce pour of every brew on tap - typically about ten different brews plus two pints for a total value of about $22. Second choice - $22 for four beer flights and four pints, value about $44.

To founders Chris Chavez and Donavan Lane, micro is too big. The pair prefer to call their beer-making operation a nanobrewery. In their secret lab behind Broken Bottle's taproom, Chris and Donavan put together small-batch brews that utilize fresh, unique ingredients to create one-of-a-kind flavors. Their 10 taps spill forth a rotating selection of regular selections and special seasonal beers, from smooth vanilla stouts to American ales brewed with fresh prickly-pear fruit. The brewery aims to be a one-stop destination for nights out by serving barley hummus, brisket meatloaf sandwiches, and other inventive pub dishes.

Take along a designated driver and . . . Keep on Traveling!
