event admission for two
heavy hors d’oeuvres

5 tickets to enter in the giveaways listed below

From the moment you walk into Santikos Palladium AVX, we want this date night to be the absolute best experience you and your honey could possibly imagine!  The cocktail hour will take place upstairs in the stunning Marathon Lounge, complete with ample luxury seating, a glass wall overlooking the bowling alley below, and two multi-screen walls — that of course, will be tuned in to the big game of the night. {You’re welcome, Hubbies.}  Inside the lounge, we will also have an hors d’oeuvre station set up with homemade queso and chips, beef quesadillas, and buffalo chicken wrap bites…all of which you won’t have to share with those little fingers that always make their way onto your plate.  A private bar will also be set up exclusively for attendees, and each VIP couple’s ticket comes with 2 complimentary drink tickets to get your evening started.  {However, we strongly encourage you to bring a little cash for tips…and maybe a few extra for another drink or two as the night carries on as well!}

Axelrad ClinicThroughout the cocktail hour, we encourage you to stop by and visit our amazing sponsors from The Axelrad Clinic.  They will be on hand to share information about their health and wellness clinic and answer any questions you may have about natural wellness and how to ensure you and your love feel the absolute best!  Plus, they are giving away an amazing wellness package to one lucky couple who stops by their table also.

KEEPAnd while you’re mixing and mingling, don’t forget to pay a visit to Stefanie O’Neal, our sponsor and a founding designer with KEEP Collective.  We just know you will fall in love with her one-of-a-kind jewelry, and we can’t think of a more special way to remember the evening than by purchasing a piece or two of your own.  Just envision a leather band, yours and your honeys initials, and a simple heart in between…  Absolute perfection!

Directly following the cocktail hour, we will all make our way over to two private theaters to enjoy a premier screening of The Longest Ride — which doesn’t officially hit theaters until the following day.  {So no need to worry about whether or not you’ve seen the movie before!}  Inside the private theaters, we will have access to in-house dining and drink service, where you are welcome to open your own tab and order a few drinks and maybe even share a meal or dessert with your lovely too.

If you’ve been to one of our events before, then you know that our swag bags have a tendency of being over the top.  And this one is no exception too!  Our sponsors were incredibly gracious when providing items for each and every couple to take home, and here is just a small peek at some of the brands you can expect to see…

Fresh Wave :: Casa Morales :: Kitcheniq :: KIND
Kleenhanz :: See’s Candies :: ViSalus :: Surf Sweets

charity of choice.

We are beyond honored to be featuring Operation Homefront as our featured charity for this amazing date night event!  As a national nonprofit, this incredible organization leads more than 2,500 volunteers to provide emergency and other financial assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors.  Since their launch in 2002, they have provided assistance to thousands of military families – and we are so proud to partner with them for this event to make a difference right here in Houston!

In an effort to support their upcoming Back to School Brigade, we are asking attendees to bring new backpacks and other school supplies {binders, pencil boxes, glue, paper, markers, etc.} to contribute to the cause.  Please just keep in mind that Operation Homefront asks that packages remain intact and all together for easy transport {meaning no loose markers or individual sheets of paper}, and as mentioned above – we will give you additional giveaway tickets for each contribution too! {FIVE tickets for each backpack and ONE ticket for each additional school supply item!!}

As with all of our events, we strongly encourage the use of social media as a fun way to connect with others and support all of the gracious businesses involved.  So keep your camera phones handy, snap lots of pictures, and don’t forget to hashtag them when sharing on social media.  But don’t worry if you miss a shot…because our fabulously talented friend Amanda from Momma’s Gonna SNAP will be there taking lots of pictures right alongside you!

Thank you again and again to all of our sponsors who are helping to make this event a huge success. If you haven’t already, grab your ticket soon!

Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
