Certain events just kick off the holiday season: the tree-lighting in Rockefeller Center, clearance sales on strappy sandals at your favorite secret shoe spot, and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring the Rockettes. Sure, as a girl you wanted to be a Rockette. Now as an adult youre still tempted to abandon your cubicle, grab a collection of multi-hued fishnets, and throw your arm over the last shoulder in the row, and whisper take me with you but you arent qualified. To join, your legs must be able to unhinge at the hip like a snakes jaw, and fling about with metronome-like accuracy.
Honestly, its for the best. Without that pesky pressure to stay limber, youre free to follow your other, truer passions: cocktails and snacks. Both of which can be consumed Wednesday night at the Broward Center when the awe-inspiring Rockettes perform, just for you. Best of all, this performance benefits Special Olympics of Miami Dade County so while you may not be Gumby in high heels, you can show off your nimble generosity tonight, in more sensible shoes. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets/Donations cover all sponsorship levels: $39 to $5000. Call 305-406-9467, or visit www.somdc.org.
