Grab your Girls and Enjoy Ladies Night at Sky Zone

Sometimes I look at my schedule and it can be daunting. Besides my day-to-day work responsibilities, there are after work meetings for things I am involved in throughout the community, family functions to attend, work that needs to be done at home and so much more.

That's why I always like it when I find unique events that make for a great reason to grab a couple of friends and spend the night having a little fun!

It seems that so many of my favorite movies and musicals just so happen to be from the 70s and 80s. Blame it on my love of anything nostalgic, or the fact that the 70s and 80s were when my mom was growing up and never hesitated to show me her favorite flicks as I grew up myself. One of my favorites is Annie, the story of the little red-headed orphan who made everyone fall in love with her. You can fall in love with her too when Annie - The Musical comes to the Embassy Theatre on Friday, April 8!
