Giveaway: Harlem Globetrotter You-Pick-The-Prize! (closed)

Update 2/17/10 Congratulations to our Winner:

Winnie (comment #1 as chosen by Random.org)   Yay!!!

_________________________

Raise your hand of you've ever seen the Harlem Globetrotters...

Notice, my hand is NOT raised.

But it will be soon!

We are going April 10th to see the Harlem Globetrotters LIVE in all their silliness and glory and I, Can't Wait!

Having grown up outside of New York I used to see commercials for the Harlem Globetrotters all the time and always wanted to go. They are funny, yet very talented ball players. I know my kids will enjoy the show as much as my sports-loving husband so this will be a great family outing.

You can WIN a Harlem Globetrotters Prize of your Choice!

Option 1: Tickets for 4 to see the Harlem Globetrotters

Want to see them live? First check out the schedule and see if they are playing near you. Then enter to win (see instructions below) and IF you win, tell me which show you want to attend!

Option 2: Harlem Globetrotters Prize Pack

Photobucket

Can't make the live show? I have a Harlem Globetrotters prize pack that includes a program, a mini Harlem Globetrotters ball, wristbands, and a team photo that you can choose as your prize, and to use to put on your own show! Follow the instructions below for entries and IF you win, tell me you want the prize pack instead of the tickets.

1. Visit the Harlem Globetrotters website and tell me either which show you'd like to attend OR who you will share the prize pack with if you win

2. Subscribe to TwoferMom via email and leave me a comment

3. Email 3 of your friends about this giveaway with a link and cc scarytwins [at] yahoo dot com

4. Post a link to this contest on Twitter (leave URL for the tweet in the comment here)

Twofer Thumbs Up for Musician Diane Birch and Discover & Donate


What a great idea!
Discover and Donate has created a way for people to discover new artists, and donate $1.00 to one of 6 charities. Not only that, they have created a fun way for you to spread the love of Diane Birch and your favorite charity whether you blog, Facebook, or partake in some other social networking site.

I'm choosing to support SOS Children's Villages and you can click on the widget below to purchase and donate.

Or, grab your own widget and start placing it wherever you spend time!

Diane Birch has an incredibly soulful sound. Part Joss Stone, with a little bit of Carol King, and, possibly, a dash of Joni Mitchell. I have no idea what Diane Birch would think of that comparison but that's what I'm going with.

Maybe I'll ask her at the next #GNO! Yes, @DianeBirch is on Twitter so give her a shout out and let her know what you think of her sound!

Sparks fly and fingers are licked at Medieval Times

On the surface, it's a fake castle, in a mall, with plastic hologram cups.

But once inside Medieval Times there are knights, swords that spark when they collide, royalty, talented horses, amazingly good food, and, oh yeah - those plastic hologram cups are filled with beer.

Brave young knights

Our friends have been telling us about this place for at least a year. They decided to take a few of us there as their treat...but really, it was our treat to go!

Medieval Times IS what you make of it


With kids we made it a real castle with real knights having real battles...but not really getting hurt. We cheered our knight shouting "Red and yellow, red and yellow" and waving our flags wildly as he rode by. This got easier with each beer refill. I actually started to lose my voice.

Cheering for our knight

There is a story to follow, and the show is performed in a sand pit 'stage' with lighting and sound effects to bring it to life. I noticed the kids didn't catch much of the story, but they did see that someone was captured and thus there were "good and bad guys" - basically that's all they needed to get into it.

Prisoner (Good Guy)

Medieval cheers and jeers


Each section is color-coded to a knight and the crowd cheers and boos as needed. There is a break in the middle where
the list of birthdays is read...in our case, 4 pages...and if the cheering gets weak the court clerk calls you on it.

Knights provide entertainment in the form of incredible equestrian skills, jousting, and hand-to-hand combat. The swords they use spark as they scrape against one another and the jousting poles splinter before your eyes! Chivalry exists within this castle and t didn't hurt this review one bit that our kinight chose yours truly as a fair maiden and tossed me beautiful red...carnation. (The jury is still out whether he threw it to me or the girls but I'm banking on the fact that he was not trying to woo two 6-year olds.)

Equine Skillz

Fingers are for Food


Bring your own Wet-Ones because there are no utensils but the food is GOOD. Tomato soup is served in a bowl with a handle and a slice of garlic bread - easy enough. But then a half of a roasted chicken is put down before you and there's no delicate way to dig in.

No utensils but hologram beer cups!

It all adds to the experience and you can imagine how this would have been a welcome break from the daily grind of just surviving in those dark times. The meal is completed by a mini apple turnover and even the servers admit everyone calls it a McDonald's Apple Pie. This is what makes Medieval Times so much fun - they get that it's campy, a little cheesy, but still lots of fun.

Have you been to Medieval Times? I'd love to know your experience so leave me a comment and tell me what you thought of it!

Twins Clowning Around for the Ringling Brothers Circus

Ringling Brothers Circus here we come!


As you can see we are getting very excited for the Over the Top performance of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Baily Circus Thursday night with the folks at Mom Central.

Don't forget the discount code!

I know I already blogged about the Special Code: MOM that gets you 4 tickets for just $44, but I think it's such a great deal I can't help posting it again!

Mom Central + Feld Entertainment = Fun!

As part of the Feld Family Activator Influencer events that Mom Central is hosting, we were sent our own clown noses and program book. I'm looking forward to meeting some of the Mom Central crew who have made it possible for me to review so many great products.

My two clowns give it a BIG Twofer Thumbs Up...especially the 'adimals' and the clown noses.


Have you bought your tickets yet?
