Lake Media has formed an exclusive partnership with several area businesses to provide readers with $320 in local gift certificates for only $59, Lake Media Publisher Dave Cuddihy announced Friday.

The “Access Eats & Entertainment” booklet contains sixteen $20 gift certificates to top restaurants and entertainment venues across the Lake of the Ozarks.

Cuddihy said this is an excellent opportunity to shop local, while supporting the businesses at a steeply discounted rate.

“I am so excited for Lake Media to be able to partner with these businesses to give our community a chance to discover, or in some cases rediscover, some of our great places to eat and some of the best in local entertainment.” Cuddihy said. Businesses who provided the $20 gift certificates include The Butcher Shop, Splatz Paintball, Fort 54 Paintball, Fat Polly’s, Surdyke Rentals, Eldon Lanes, Smokin’ Bones BBQ, Jetz Trampoline Park, Lake Ozark Speedway, Lazer Force Lazer tag, Zaxby’s, Wacky Knacky Diner, Popeyz Pier 31, Tortilla Flats, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Fire and Slice.

“These are not coupons — these are actual gift certificates with a face value of $20. The value is there, and I look forward to our community will be able to benefit from it,” he said.

There are three easy ways to reserve an “Access Eat & Entertainment” booklet, but supplies are limited.
