Now, This my not be a valid punch in my "Man Card". But I have been to this before, and enjoyed every bit of it. The Nutcracker is at the SF Ballet from December 14 - 31. I am thinking of going. Anyone else interested? Tickets range from $18 for standing room only, and up to $188. I think, correct me if I'm wrong, that by paying $188 you have the RIGHT to walk on stage at least once wave then sit down and later come out for the bow. Getting gussied up and going out in the city is fun from time to time. Then we scrap our clothing by spilling mixed drinks all over them at some dive bar. But dinner will be first.
