Martinis Dont Require Warm-up Stretches
Certain events 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 multihued fishnets, and throw your arm over the last shoulder in the row, whispering 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 metronomelike 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 tonight at the Broward Center, where the awe-inspiring Rockettes will dance just for you. Best of all, this performance benefits Special Olympics of Miami-Dade County -- so although you might not be Gumby in high heels, you can show off your nimble generosity in more sensible shoes. Showtime is 7:30. Tickets/donations cover all sponsorship levels: $39 to $5000.
Wed., Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m., 2007
