Guys & Dolls Dinner & Show - Easy
Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. Featuring memorable songs such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “Guys and Dolls,” you won’t want to miss this show at the Candlelight Pavilion! The price includes dinner, show, coffee and gratuity.

Last Man Standing Live Taping & Dupars - Easy
Mike tries to escape all the female drama at home in the warm, manly embrace of his job at the Outdoor Man store, a sporting goods emporium where he is marketing director. Mike's long-time boss and friend, Ed Alzate, continues to provide a slightly warped sounding-board as Mike considers the various thorny issues confronting him at home. Mike still revels in his Outdoor Man video-blog, which he delightedly uses as a pulpit for his opinions and a voice to appeal to those who agree that manliness is under assault. When he's supposed to be selling mountain bikes or kayaks, for some reason he always ends up spouting off about the environment, Obamacare, international politics or any other topic occupying his mind. (Last Man Standing airs on ABC on Friday nights.) An early dinner is included with this trip.
