Subway Santa is a little late to the party this year. The lack of snow this holiday season has wreaked havoc on his internal clock. We’ve got just two weeks left for Christmas shoppers—even less for Hanukkah. So let’s cut the bull and get right to it. Last year we were inspired by these crafty Rochester Subway gift ideas. This year, Rochester Subway Santa has two more goodies for you.

Sean DeChalais, owner of a local frame shop in the Village Gate called Black Radish Studio, recently wrote to tell me how much he loves his Rochester Subway poster. Just look at the amazing work he did (above) with his Subway map and a few Rochester transit passes and tokens. Wish your walls could look this good? Santa’s got good news…

A Rochester Comedy Classic
Now, here is a stocking-stuffer that’s an absolute must-have for any 5-8-5’er who isn’t easily offended by strong language. Driver’s Wanted is a wonderfully quirky, and crack-up funny film about the wild world of pizza delivery drivers. This film was written, produced, and directed by Rochester native T. (Timmy) Lee Beideck and it’s a ton of fun.
Shot entirely in Rochester and Irondequoit, you’ll pick out many local streets and landmarks while you ride shotgun and play witness to hysterically funny pizza deliveries. Watch the trailer here. I remember taking a date to see this movie at the Little Theatre in 1998. I’m still not really sure what she thought of it, but she eventually married me so it must have done the trick. I ordered my DVD copy for $20 a few weeks ago online here and got the soundtrack as a free bonus. Plus, the DVD came autographed by Beideck himself! (See item above)
And be sure to watch for his second feature film Sophmore opening in Rochester on January 13, 2012. Beideck describes Sophomore as his way of looking at life as a high-school sophomore, “when you’re on the cusp between being a kid and becoming an adult … When the world you live in is about learning new things and having new adventures.”
That’s it for now boys and girls. Subway Santa’s sack is spent. Get out there and shop local. And if you have other local gift ideas for us, drop them in the comment section.
