I'd like to go ice skating at CitP too. It's about $10 w/skate rental (discount with SJSU Tower Card).

If you don't know how to skate, it's even funnier.

Psh it's only funny when you're not the victim.  ;)

I remember my first day of ice skating....

Me: *loses balance and falls backward*
Employee: *skates to me* Are you alright?
Me: I'm fine. This is my first time...
Employee: I can tell.

Yeah, the prices.  What my Mom does is buy a group of tickets for a discount and we sit along the left edge so we can see the final scene.  That was 1999 and I'm sure the group policy changed since.

This sounds like fun. I've only ever seen The Nutcracker on TV, but never in real life.

I think I can go, but could I get a ride from you?

My sister took ballet lessons when she was little.  She was an extra in the opening scene.  My family and I got backstage access and saw Dennis Nahat.  We saw one dress rehiersal where the dancers were in full costume and orchastra was playing, too.

Wow, I feel so 'cultured' in the last year, ive been to disneyland, lost in a national forrest, gone to several lolita gatherings, seen musicals, plays and even Avenue Q (twice!!!  :P) and of course an operetta.

Hmmm... ballet huh?

I always used to hear about the SF nutcracker, I didnt realize there was a San Jose company as well, but it makes sense.

Hey ININ, if or when you decide a date of choice, I'd be interested in checking it out.

of course my vote would be for the cheap seats, but its looks to be an interesting show.

I need to start more 'holiday' traditions now that I'm starting my own family...  :P

Please keep me posted. Thanks!

Hey Jerry, you should check out that opera I pimped at the backup boards if you want to continue feeling cultured. hehe

Looks good, technically I could afford it (hoping for a nice Xmas bonus this year...)
and of course willing to car pool.

Is this going to be a black tie event? It's been a while I've needed to wear a Tux or new even suit.

and to think the last little black dress I saw was back in January...  :D

give me a good reason to enjoy a nite on the town with a good of old friends.

Business semi-formal is good.  No jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers.  Guys, wearing a tie is highly recommended  :)
