Fun news. To celebrate the fact that it’s Friday — I’m doing a flash give-away for two totally fabulous upcoming shows at the Warner Theatre.

RockofAgesGet your 80s on, tease up your hair, and get ready to dance with the Rock of Ages show on Sunday March 2. White Snake anyone? How about a little Journey?

Here I go again on my own……..

Is that song going to be in your head the rest of the day?


How about a little We Built This City…..we built this city on Rock’n’Roll.

I have 2 tickets to give-away to either show at Warner Theatre, 3pm or 7:30pm on Sunday March 2.

For those who want to join me in my Flux Capacitor and head back in Beatlestime even further…instead to the 60s… how about 2 tickets to see Rain – A Tribute to the Beatles on March 14  at 8pm or March 15 at 8pm at the Warner Theatre. The muli-media show is supposed to be amazing and a ton of fun.

Date night, anyone?

Am I handing you an excuse on a silver platter or what?

Win Tickets to see Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic

It’s the most wonderful time of the winter…..and I can hardly believe the time has come again. It is the annual Feld Entertainment production of Disney on Ice at the Verizon Center, something me and the girls never miss each year. Regular Color Logo_D20blog readers know I always complain about the fall trek to the Patriot Center (and then inevitably do it again the following year because we can’t resist) but I would never complain about the February performance of Disney on Ice at the Verizon Center. First, I can get there much easier than I can get to the Patriot Center.


Second, for some reason, I always think this show is better than the fall show. Is it me? Or do others feel that same way?

Without further delay….today I am offering a 4 pack give-away to see the show on opening night, Wednesday Feb. 12 at 7:30PM.  Read on for details on the show and how to enter:

First about the show – This year a whopping 65 characters from 18 stories are coming together in this one show….wowzers! I am sure the burning question on everyone’s mind is this – has Frozen made its way into the cast and will we hear “Let it go” (That song will now be in your head for the remainder of the day. And you are welcome). Yeah yeah…we know even Disney can’t produce that so quickly but hopefully next year? Hint hint……

Next – for some Disney super nerds out there, of which I am totally one now that we’ve gone with the kids and can’t wait to go back again, how about 10 trivia questions – see how much you actually know (I knew very little, as it so happens):

1. What is Geppetto’s profession?
Answer: Geppetto is a wood carver specializing in clocks, music boxes and toys.

2. According to the song, what is the only thing Pinocchio has to do when he wants his conscience to be his guide?
Answer: All Pinocchio has to do is “give a little whistle.”

3. What character did Walt Disney say he created on a train ride from New York to California?
Answer: Mickey Mouse

4. How many edges does a figure skating blade have?
Answer: Two

5. What character uses the words, “Little puppet made of pine, wake, the gift of life is thine”?
Answer: The Blue Fairy uses these words in order to bring Pinocchio to life.

6. What song includes the phrase, “An actor’s life for me”?
Answer: “Hi Diddle Dee Dee” by Leigh Harline, Ned Washington, and Paul J. Smith

7. What does the Beast give Belle when she leaves the castle?
Answer: The Beast gives Belle a magic mirror so that she will “always have a way to look back and remember” him.

8. What do Pinocchio and the Beast have in common?
Answer: Both characters want to be human.

9. In Beauty and the Beast, according to LeFou, “No beast alive stands a chance against . . .” whom?
Answer: Gaston

10. What is the longest word in any Disney song?
Answer: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (there are 34 letters)

Seriously. Did you learn something? I should make you spell Disney’s longest word song in order to win!!! #Evil

Tuesday Fun Day: Flash Give-Away to Imagination Stage Opening Night

Let’s have a get to know me moment, shall we? Here’s a random fact: As a genera rule of thumb, Tuesday is my least favorite day of the week. I find that there are little redeeming qualities about a Tuesday. It has no real identity, it is just kind of there. So let’s dress up this Tuesday with a super fun flash give-away….especially because it is a particularly warm, sunny and cheerful Tuesday, at least here in DC, right?

Last Friday I had a flash give-away on my Wired Momma Facebook page for 4 tickets to any showing of the new Imagination Stage production opening this weekend, Anime Momotaro. Billed as best for those ages 5-10, this production sounds exciting and adventure packed, complete with Ogres and plenty of animal friends including a dog, a monkey and a bird. Imagination Stage’s stellar reputation among DC area parents quickly made this a super popular give-away on a snowy Friday afternoon. Honestly, I regretted having only one set of tickets to give-away because of all the enthusiasm from my Facebook friends (see – if you haven’t liked my page yet – you are totally missing out!).

Then, as luck would have it, someone from Bethesda-based Honest Tea Company reached out to me yesterday. Honest Tea is the official sponsor of the opening weekend of Anime Momotaro at Imagination Stage, they are rolling out a new-healthier line of Honest Kids juice and will be showcasing their new line this weekend at the theater. Their new Honest Kids line has less sugar and more fruit in it! And the best part – Honest Tea is offering me four tickets to give away to the Saturday evening performance of Anime Momotaro! I will automatically enroll all the people who wanted to win the ones I gave away on Sunday but didn’t win – but for those of you who didn’t enter to win – now is your chance! Go ahead and head over to my Facebook page, comment under the post, and of course – be sure you’ve hit “Like” on my page. I will announce the winner tomorrow afternoon – so make sure you check back to see if I’ve listed your name!

A big thank you to Honest Tea for their support of children’s theater in DC, for making healthier juice options for kids and of course, for offering up these 4 tickets to a lucky reader!
