Because we’ve got two tickets to the opening night performance of the off-Broadway hit musical Rock of Ages on Tuesday, November 15th at 7 p.m.!

ABOUT THIS SHOW: This 80s-inspired musical (which is now becoming a movie starring Tom Cruise) was a huge hit on Broadway and was nominated for five Tony awards. It’s a feel-good love story set in 1987 on the Sunset Strip. A small town girl meets a big city rocker and they fall in love in L.A.’s most famous rock club. Their story plays out to some of the greatest songs of the 80s by bands including Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and lots more. (Note that this show has some mature content, so be sure to leave the kids with a sitter!)
The New York Times called this show “Impossible to resist” and the magazine Time Out says it’s “rock and comedy in perfect proportion.”
ABOUT THE FOOD: Speaking of perfect proportions and things that are impossible to resist, have you been to Bordinos lately? It’s our go-to restaurant for those times when we want the perfect metropolitan atmosphere combined with flavorful Italian food that’s sophisticated but never stuffy or pretentious. Plus, you just can’t beat the service there. The servers seem to know that a mama’s night out on the town is something to be savored and treasured, so they treat a mama right! Be sure to save room for Bordinos legendary desserts. Click here to see the menu.
HOW TO ENTER: To throw your name in the online “raspberry beret” (made famous by Prince in 1985), just click the big orange comment button below and tell us what your favorite fad from the 80s was. (Trapper Keepers, shoulder pads, acid-washed jeans, banana clips, parachute pants, etc. And does anybody besides us remember trading “friendship beads” with your BFFs in elementary school?)
Or if you’ve blocked the 80s fads from memory or are too young to remember, tell us your favorite hit song from the 80s. (“We Built This City,” by Starship; “Wanted Dead or Alive,” by Bon Jovi…. both of those are in the musical, by the way!)
