Great Date Giveaway: The Midtown Men at Walton Arts Center!

Note from the mamas: Congratulations to Annette Goll, winner of the Great Date Giveaway!

If you enjoy a little man eye candy as well as good music and fabulous food, we’ve got the PERFECT date night lined up for you. Picture this: Four really good-looking guys in tuxedos singing classic songs made famous by some of the most successful bands of all time — The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Jackson Five, The Four Seasons, The Mamas and the Papas, and lots more.

We’ve got FOUR tickets to see them live at Walton Arts Center on Friday, August 19th at 8 p.m., plus we’re including a $75 gift card to enjoy dinner at Bordinos Italian Restaurant!! (This would be an incredible double-date or a super fancy girls’ night out!)

ABOUT THE SHOW: The stars of this show are the same four men who starred in the original cast of the Broadway hit Jersey Boys. The men have appeared on the Today Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, and many more. They’ve also performed in Carnegie Hall, Yankee Stadium, Times Square and Radio City Music Hall. Impressed yet? We are.

ABOUT THE FOOD: As you know, our policy here at nwaMotherlode is to treat our fellow mamas to a great meal at an awesome restaurant every chance we get. So we’re pairing these concert tickets with a wonderful meal at the one-of-a-kind Bordinos Italian Restaurant on Dickson Street, just steps away from the theater. Instead of telling you how much we LOVE eating at Bordinos, we’ll just let the menu do the talking this time. It speaks for itself.

Here are a few of the dishes you might choose during your date at Bordinos: Chicken Fettuccine with roasted bell peppers, spinach, Shiitake mushrooms in a white wine cream sauce. Or maybe you’d like Beef Tenderloin with zucchini in gorgonzola butter? And you’d be nuts to skip dessert. We like the famous Chocolate Mousse Dome, which is a chocolate cake, chocolate mouse, cocoa nibs and a raspberry couli. We could go on and on… but we’ve already made ourselves hungry just thinking about it. Click here to see the rest of the menu.

  1. I love a man who has gorgeous eyes and a great sense of humor! And most importantly, a true gentleman!!!!

  2. Tall, dark, and handsome…also a hard worker but makes time for fun and family!

  3. I can’t win this but I CAN tell you that having seen the Midtown Men perform they are incredibly charming and charismatic and sing like you wouldn’t believe! Someone is going to be very lucky to get this night out!


  4. I would love to have this night out on the town. I have been goof through some medical issues lately and teats and more tests. This would make such a wonderful time to just get away.

  5. A man who is well groomed and well dressed. Black-tie always makes a guy look good. But clothes don’t always make the man. Must have a good personality and be a gentlemen to boot! Would love to have a night out with people whose company I enjoy.

  6. Well i like a tall good sized man. One that can make me laugh and respects me. Does everyday things to help me out. Supports me in what ever i do.

  7. A man who is a good father and respects his wife and children is the best. I am lucky to have one of those husbands!

  8. The old addage “tall, dark, and handsome” comes to mind. That might draw the attraction, but then, yes, he must be intelligent, funny, interesting, considerate, and honest. Boy, if you find all that in a man, grab him!! (Unfortunately, they’re usually already taken!…lol)

  9. What kind of man turns my head? My husband. We have been married for 6 years and I love him more now than I did when we first met. He is an intentional father, a faithful friend and relentless lover. And you better believe he can rock a tux!

  10. I agree with Katherine, a man that is a good father and respectful husband has to be at the top of my list!!!

  11. Would love to have these tickets for myself, but would love even more to hand them over to son and daughter-in-law for their anniversary.

  12. My man caught my eye. With his eyes. Bright blue.. and he looks amazing in his Navy uniforms.. I would love to win these tickets just so we can have grown up time.

  13. I’ve been married to Kent for 23 years..he’s my best friend. No, really he is. 🙂 I love that we can laugh at things that nobody understands, we know when the other needs space and when they need a hug. I love that some of our favorite dates include a cheese burger and shake on a quilt at the park. I love that we like to hang out together, but we give each other the space needed to have great friendships with other people. I love the way he loves our daughters! We aren’t perfect, but we love each other beyond what either of us understand! 🙂

  14. I love when my husband takes care of all the little details and treats me extra special (think first date flirting)

  15. Would love to see these guys need a night out too double treat. My husband still turns my head ofter 40 years he is kind, considerate and generous with his compliments.

  16. A head turner is one that is dressed nice and dark hair and nicely trimmed facial hair. He needs to have a great smile and makes me laugh. Sweet to his kids and me. He needs to be willing to help with everything that has to do with the family. That is actually my husband.

  17. Someone who seems self confident. Manly. A desk jockey doesn’t really do it for me. Someone who is fun and funny. And brings me up instead of dragging me down.

  18. My husband is so solid in his love and commitment to me and our marriage. I trust him completely to take care of our family. He is such a rock. I am so blessed that God sent him into my life.

  19. My husband really pursued me and made me feel special in college, is so supportive in whatever I do and is a wonderful Christian leader in our household!

  20. I’ve got the man of my dreams. My husband makes each day interesting with his humor, quick wit, and great smile.

  21. Well I’m definitely an arm girl! However, I have slowly but surely realized that looks aren’t everything. I always had a type (a tall, dark and handsome type), but found out that type usually meant JERK. Although I fought the offers to go on a 1st date w/my now husband (because he totally wasn’t my type), I have realized w/age that looks don’t matter. Now, I have the cutest man alive. No matter what others think it’s his inside that I totally melt over 🙂 He’s a GREAT husband and daddy and I’m in love!

    Now enter my name in that drawing because I’ve been contemplating purchasing tickets to this show and would love to take 3 good girlfriends w/me!

  22. My husband is a strong Christian man, an incredible father, and my best friend. Wouldn’t trade him for anything!

  23. A great smile and a great sense of humor! 🙂 Would love to win tickets and dinner at Bordinos, it is my husbands 35th birthday!!! What a way to surprise him and celebrate together!

  24. My hubby has a smile that melts my heart. That alone is enough to ignite my fire. Add some rare quality time together in the mix, and mama is definitely happy!

  25. ahh cologne. I still remember that my first love in H.S. wore Grey Flannel cologne. I am a sensory girl.

  26. I love date nights where my husband and I go out and really focus on each other and the date–no iPhones, discussion of work (as we work at the same place), or silent eating (like an old couple who knows each other so well). It takes me back to when we first were dating and couldn’t get enough of each other, whether we were out to eat and all dressed up or snuggled under a sheet tent (that is, a tent made in the living room with sheets and a string of Christmas lights) watching The Wedding Singer. But I still enjoy the regular date nights where we do day-to-day things like grocery shopping (Yes, we make that into a date!) and talking about work. 🙂

  27. It sure is nice not to have the kids around for date night. Now that we have teens and older, they love to join us for date night which kind of defeats the purpose some how!

  28. A sense of humor. And a great smile. Thats my husband to a “T”. Would love to win these tickets. Its been over a year since my husband and I have had a “Offical” Date night. We have a 2 & 3 Yr old. So there isnt much time for ourselves. Thanks!!!! 🙂

  29. I can’t use the tickets, but I have to say that after reading the qualities you all find attractive, I feel certain you will love The Midtown Men! They are handsome, funny, sweet and definitely gentlemen. Forget the date night and take your girlfriends to the show – whether you win tickets or not – you won’t be disappointed!

    After you see the show, visit The Midtown Club website (fans of The Midtown Men) and share your experience

  30. I’m a little different I guess (no comment from those who know – and love – me), but a sense of humor and intelligence get me. That’s how my hubby hooked me 28 yrs ago. 🙂

  31. I love a man with a sense of humor, a good laugh and loving eyes. That is what I find so attractive about my husband. I would love to go to see these handsome men with my husband. I great date is good every now and then. 🙂

  32. Intelligent with a sense of humor would be great! Also, being a perfect gentleman would be awesome!!

  33. A great smile, complimented by being smart and funny. He knows how to treat a lady, and still be a man!

  34. A man that shows respect to me and others and someone I can always count on and that I know is completely mine:)

  35. My husband has been thru alot of diffrent medical issues the past 3 years , he is only 41, and we have not been able to go out for dinner or anything because of the medical bills. He continues to work, help take care of the kids and battle one problem after another thru all this. I would love to share the tickets with him and my parents for a fun night out

  36. What lites my “fire” is is actually getting to sit with my husband and finish a sentence in a restaurant that doesn’t have crackers on the table or a clown on the menu.

  37. Great dad- attentive hubby- free night out! AWESOME! Thanks for all the fun giveaways girls!! XOXOX
