If you've been sitting on your Brio Tuscan Grille gift certificates, you might want to consider cashing those in between now and Sunday.

Come Monday, the cavernous restaurant at the Tucson Mall will be history and you'll need to travel to Phoenix to make good on those gift certificates.

  Brio officials announced early this month that the Tucson restaurant would close March 17. It's the first time the Ohio-based chain has closed a restaurant, a company spokesman said.

Brio, 150 W. Wetmore Road, is open today until 11 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
