Giveaway: Tickets to see the Hip Hop Nutcracker!

Happy Monday, mamas!

We hope you had a happy Thanksgiving and a fun weekend. Let’s get this week started off right with a giveaway! We’ve got 4 tickets to give to one local mama and her family to see the Dec. 22nd performance of the Hip Hop Nutcracker! These people can DANCE and the music’s great, too. Such a fun show, so much energy.

Here’s a short video to give you a little taste of how much this shop will be hip-hoppin’:

ABOUT THE SHOW: Heat up your Christmas tradition with an unforgettable contemporary mash-up of a timeless holiday story. A supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers combines with hip hop beats mixed by a live DJ and an on-stage electric violinist, turning Tchaikovsky on his head in the coolest possible way.

A spell cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer takes Maria-Clara and her prince back in time to the moment when her parents first met. Digital scenery transforms a palace of sugarplums into a modern, romantic setting in 1980s Brooklyn. If your family is more into break-dancing than ballet, this Nutcracker is the perfect gift!

AMP tickets to see Styx in concert and dinner at Newk’s

styx 690Even people who aren’t children of the 80s have to admit. Some of the 80s music stands the test of time, and music by the band Styx definitely falls into that timeless category. (They were the first band to earn four triple-platinum albums in a row.) That’s why we are SO excited to send one lucky local mom and her date to the Styx concert on September 1st. She’ll be rocking out to songs like “Lady,” “Come Sail Away,” “Mr. Roboto,” “Show Me The Way,” “Too Much Time on My Hands,” “Renegade,” and “The Best of Times.”

These two concert tickets are for chair seats (not the lawn) at the Walmart AMP for September 1, 2016. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the music starts at 7:30 p.m.Newk's_Eatery_Logo

We’re pairing the concert tickets with dinner gift cards at one of our new favorite places to eat in Rogers. Newk’s Eatery, which is located within walking distance of the Walmart AMP, has won us over with its big menu, incredible soups, gourmet sandwiches, thin-crust pizzas, and don’t get us started on the amazing pasta salad. Love it. (We also give it a thumbs-up for the sweet tea!)

We haven’t had anything at Newk’s that we didn’t like, but one of our favorites is the Pesto Chicken Sandwich with a side of pasta salad. (The Broccoli Cheese soup is also pretty spectacular, and plenty of people go nuts for Newk’s famous mac & cheese.) This week’s giveaway winner will also receive two gift cards which will get you two free dinner entrees at Newk’s, which you can use anytime or right before the Styx concert.

Speaking of the concert, here’s a clip of one of our favorite Styx songs, “Lady.”

HOW TO ENTER: If you’d love to win this package, just click HERE or click on the word “comments” (right under the headline of this post) and scroll down to the bottom of the comments posted by other moms. Then post a comment telling us your favorite Styx song (or favorite thing to eat at Newk’s)!
