Get up to 59% off at Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” on November 18th.

The Deal

  • $40 for rear main floor and mid to rear balcony seating, plus a book (up to $81.66 value)
  • $58 for mid-main floor and front balcony seating, plus a nutcracker (up to $117.80 value)
  • $68 for front to mid main floor plus, plus a nutcracker and a book (up to $164.15 value)

Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker

The spirit of Tchaikovsky guides Moscow Ballet’s professional ballerinas as they leap and pirouette against hand-painted backgrounds that invigorate his spirited score in time for the holiday season. Great Russian Nutcracker reintroduces audiences of all ages to young Masha, whose taste for adventure rivals her magical wooden doll’s legendary aversion to chestnuts. Dancers fling themselves across the stage in grand jetés as the curtain opens on Moscow’s iconic skyline, which gives way to a spooky dreamland as the Mouse King rears his fuzzy head to stir up mischief. Audiences gasp as legions of mice capture Masha’s strong-jawed companion and carry him away, past a lavishly decorated Christmas tree that soars toward the ceiling, and through their fellow dancers, who do not grow taller in the same way. The ensuing battle ushers the action into the enchanted Land of Peace and Harmony in the ballet’s second act.

Russian designer Valentin Fedorov’s 3-D backdrops pay homage to the snowy forests of his homeland, and the puppets that dance alongside the ballerinas nod to the mysterious felt creatures that roam the foothills of Siberia. Moscow Ballet selects its soloists from Moscow’s finest crop of dancers, and local children can audition to join the corps for one city, earning the chance to twirl their little feet with the company in walk-on roles.

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

Here is a meal all cooked in ONE pot, that will not only satisfy the comfort food craving, but also only takes 45 minutes from prep to serving. This soup has some serious flavor – and really does taste like a  warm, gooey bacon cheeseburger.  Make it for company, and they’ll be asking you for your amazing Bacon Cheeseburger Soup recipe!

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped or diced
1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped or diced
1 garlic clove minced
3 tablespoons flour
2 1/2 cups milk
1 lb potatoes (about 3 medium sized potatoes), peeled and cut up into bite-sized pieces
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon or 1 cube beef bouillon
12 oz Velveeta (about 2/14 cups)
Bacon, cooked & crumbled (3-4 slices or more if you prefer)

screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-12-10-21-pm

In a 6-qt stockpot, cook beef, onion and pepper over medium heat for about 8 minutes, or until beef is not longer pink.  Break up beef into crumbles while cooking.  Drain.  Add garlic and cook 1 more minute.  Stir in flour, until blended.  Gradually stir in milk.  Add potatoes, water and bouillon, then bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and cover while simmering for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Add Velveeta and stir until melted.  Sprinkle with bacon pieces and serve hot. Add raw onion, lettuce shreds and tomato, if you like, as well, to really make it cheeseburger-y!

Christmas in October: Santa is on His Way

Get unique & amazing pictures with Santa!

Christmas may still be a few months away, but Santa Claus is already making his way to Dallas-Fort Worth. You don’t have to worry about taking your kids to a crowded mall to visit Jolly ol’ Saint Nick, though. Your children can meet Santa in a private and magical setting! This year, Ivey Photography is creating magical “Santa experiences” in its studios in Midlothian and Richardson.

Your children will have the opportunity to tell Santa what’s on their Christmas lists, look around his workshop and enjoy an hour-long visit with the Christmas icon. Rumor has it, Mrs. Claus is making the trip from the North Pole, too, and may just bring some warm cookies and milk!

These unique photo sessions make the magic of the holidays come alive and our experienced photographers capture the special moments in priceless photos that you’ll cherish forever.

“No lines, no crowds, no generic Christmas set,” said Chris Smith, owner of Ivey Photography. “This isn’t just pictures with Santa; this is an authentic experience with Santa.”

Ivey Photography is currently booking for The 2016 Santa Experience, which runs from October-January. These artistic sessions sell out each year, so reserve your spot early to ensure you make it on Santa’s nice list! Additional information and pricing can be found at http://iveystudio.com/santa/

10 Cheap Date Night Ideas For Couples on a Budget

Cheap Date Night Ideas

Although we would all LOVE to head out for a night on the town when we are feeling amorous with our significant other, that’s just not always possible. There are a ton of cheap date night ideas that any couple can do locally!  Here are 10 ideas for you and your date:

  • Visit your local museum. Check out the different museums in your area and see if they offer any discounts, or if certain days of the week are cheaper than others. There may even be some museums you can visit with less than $5 per ticket, or free!
  • Head to a local bar and grill for karaoke night. Most of the times, bar and grills will offer $2 drinks, cheap appetizers or meals for two. Not only will you get to each for cheap, but will have entertainment too.
  • Visit a local brewery. Call ahead, and ask about prices, discounts and what samples are available. Most of the times there is only a small fee and unlimited samples of their popular craft brews. Sometimes, if you let them know it is date night they will offer a few extras for free.
  • Enjoy a friendly game of bowling. At our local bowling place, it is only $2 per game per person. For less than $10 you and your spouse can enjoy 5 games. Make sure to bring your own socks, so you will not have to purchase socks from there. Call ahead and get a schedule of any specials. Sometimes they have a ladies night where ladies get free games or discount drinks.
  • Have a date night at home. Head to your local grocery store and pick up a bottle of wine, crackers, and cheese and enjoy a peaceful night in. Look through old photographs, watch old videos, start a new series on Netflix or just sit on the couch talking and enjoying each other.
  • Spend time outdoors. If you have a truck, put a blanket out in the back and look at the stars and see how many different constellations you can name. If you do not have a truck, you can still spread out a blanket on the grass and enjoy the stars and beautiful night sky.
  • Visit your local flea market. There are so many great things you can find there. You could also support locals that are trying to start a business or even find the perfect picture to hang in your living room for less than $1.00.
  • Cheer on the local high school teams. The games are just as exciting as the pro teams and the kids would love seeing all the support in the stands. Every purchase helps support the local school and community.
  • Go on a tour of your city, especially a ghost one if your city offers it. Not only will you learn fascinating history about your town, but you never know what you will see while you are out.
  • Check out the local farms and pick your own fruits and veggies. You can visit www.pickyourown.org to see which farms you can visit and what is available to pick. During the fall a pumpkin patch would be a great place to visit.

This actually looks like fun!

In this interactive experience, you’re trapped in a room — and a hungry zombie is there too, chained to the wall! Every five minutes, a buzzer sounds and the zombie’s chain is released a few more inches. You have one hour to escape the room or risk getting eaten! Hidden in the room is a key that will unlock the door to your freedom. You and your fellow zombie bait must work together to locate numerous clues and solve riddles. It’s perfect for a thrilling night out with friends, a really cool date night or just to have a blast by yourself while meeting new people — cheating death-by-zombie tends to create fast friendships.
