The weather is just perfect for a Girls’ Night Out or double date night on Dickson Street. If you’re craving a night on the town, we’ve got just the ticket! Actually, FOUR Tickets! Today we’re giving away four tickets to see Westside Story at Walton Arts Center and dinner for the whole gang at Jose’s Mexican Restaurant!
The tickets are for opening night at Walton Arts Center on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. Tickets are around $50 or $60 apiece so this double date night (or girls’ night out) is worth around $250.
ABOUT THE SHOW: We love, love the music from this show! From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story is such a fabulous love story. *Sigh* Directed by David Saint, using Tony® Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction, West Side Story remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The new Broadway cast album of West Side Story recently won the 2010 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”
ABOUT THE FOOD: Jose’s Mexican Restaurant’s is a great place to start off the evening or top it off! They are all about good food and great fun. You can try one of their famous margaritas and fabulous cheese dip before diving into some loaded nachos or chicken enchiladas.
We also love that kids eat free all day on Sundays and that the restaurant has a revolving exhibit of local youngsters’ art on display behind the front desk. They also have karaoke on Wednesday nights if you like to belt out the tunes in front of your friends. There’s always something fun going on there, including live music on special nights!
HOW TO ENTER: Easy peasy! Just click on the comment button below and tell us about a love story that you find irresistible! Is it Edward and Bella from Twilight, Romeo and Juliet, Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara? Which onscreen (or book) love affair is swoon-worthy in your opinion? You know we’re Twilight fans, but we’re generally suckers for just about any romance, including those from one of our fave movies, Love Actually. We’ll choose a winner at random on Friday, Oct 14. Good luck!
