‘Affordable wine list’ | Save 25% on Nutcracker | Free Dance event | $1 Braves

Save on The Nutcracker

As the holiday season approaches, shows like The Nutcracker are front and center. It helps when you can find discounts on them. You can save 25 percent on select shows of the Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker performance by purchasing your ticket online and using promo code ’savvy.’

The Nutcracker is at The Fox Theatre Dec. 11-Dec. 27. There are six discounted shows, including the 7:30 p.m. performances on Dec. 16-18, both the 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. shows on Dec. 26, and the 2 p.m. performance on Dec. 27.

‘Top five affordable wine list’

Table Talk blogger Meridith Ford Goldman caught my eye with the words affordable and wine in the sentence. If you haven’t seen it, check out her weekly Top Five lists, this time featuring her favorite places for premier affrodable wines around town.

It reminds me to get on my search for restaurants in the area that will allow you to bring your own, and charge only a minimal cork fee. If you have any favorite places, send me a note or comment below.

Dine & Dance

I don’t automatically think of dancing when I think of the mall. Nice bags and shoes come to mind most often. This is an exception, though. On the last Tuesday of every month, Northlake Mall puts on its Big Band event, featuring an evening of swing music with the Atlanta-New York Connection providing the tunes. The free event in Northlake Mall’s Food Garden is from 6-8 p.m. You’re encouraged to come early for dinner at any of the mall’s restaurants, but that part isn’t free. Northlake is located at 4800 Briarcliff Road.

Braves for a $1

It’s Dave Ramsey Night at the Ted, where you can get upper reserved tickets to see the Braves vs. Marlins for $1 tonight. First pitch is 7:10 p.m. Tickets must be purchased here: braves.com/daveramsey
