Great Date Giveaway winner!


Congratulations to a lucky mama, Sharon, who won Motherlode’s “Great Date Giveaway”! This mom of a teenager snagged two tickets to the Second City comedy show at Walton Arts Center for Friday night and dinner at U.S. Pizza on Dickson Street to boot!

Give us a shout, Sharon, and we’ll fill you in on all the winning details!

We LOVED all the funnies you moms shared (including the off-line ones!) and, as always, we’re glad that chose the winner instead of us. Here’s what Sharon had to say in comments:

“I have a 13 year old, we have DRAMA in our house right now. Boy a night of laughs would be perfect, especially with no kids.”

About the show: The Second City is a touring company that has launched some of our country’s most famous comedians and actors. So this is your chance to see the next big comedians in the making. Stars including Dan Aykroyd, Joan Rivers, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Tina Fey are just a few of the big names who did a stint with The Second City.

The cast members perform satire and improv. They even take suggestions from the audience and create catchy jingles and sketches off the cuff — with no scripts! But be aware that no topic is off limits with this group, and no subject is too sensitive. 

In addition to the Friday night performance, there is also a Saturday show at 8 p.m. For more info on ticket availability, pricing and show details, click here or on the graphic above to visit the Walton Arts Center website. Or call the box office at 479-443-5600.
