Great Lakes Theater 5-play Subscription for 4 + Dinner for 2
Join us for a line-up of characters wicked and wonderful: Shakespeare’s rotund and rascally Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor; the unjustly convicted Jean Valjean and his relentless pursuer, Javert, in Les Misérables; the homicidally greedy tennis pro Tony Wendice in Dial “M” for Murder; the shipwrecked royal party and their tormentors in Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest; AND the perennially redeemed old Scrooge of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Add a 3-course brasserie dinner for two at District, across 14th from the Hanna, to one of your theater events.

Goodyear Blimp Ride for 2
*Live Auction Item*
Goodyear blimp rides are by invitation only, so winning an auction is your best chance to check this off your bucket list. The brand new, state-of-the-art, semi-rigid airship that will carry you aloft for a half hour is, according to Goodyear, the most radical reengineering of the iconic “blimps” in the company’s 90+ years of airships—larger, faster, and more maneuverable than all its predecessors. You will be seated comfortably in a longer, streamlined gondola with a wraparound window view of the earth a thousand feet or so below, as you glide along at around 35 mph. Passengers must be able to enter and exit quickly via a 5-step ladder. For more details, including additional passenger information: http://www.goodyearblimp.com/cfmx/web/blimp/. Flights primarily available November 2014 through April 2015. Expires June 14, 2015.
