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.”
