I know it may be hard to believe but 'that' time of the year is right around the corner already.

Beginning on Friday, November 19th at 7:30pm, the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis (one block from our office) will begin showing A Christmas Carol. This classic novella was written by English author Charles Dickens and first published in 1843. It tells the story of a sour and stingy man named Ebenezer Scrooge that goes through a transformation after the supernatural visitations of several ghosts. The book has been adapted into film, theater, opera and other media, and will be showing for several weeks at the Guthrie Theater. Ticket King has a nice variety of excellent seat locations in the orchestra level under $100 each - we even have front row seating! A Christmas Carol tickets make excellent gifts and they also make for a great date night with that special someone. Order yours today before the show is sold out for the year!

Fridays always rock here in the Ticket King Minneapolis office, but today REALLY rocks! Being the cat lover that I am, today really couldn't be much better. Nicole got the privilege of bringing her furry friend Raheim into work today so I'm naming it "Bring Your Cat to Work Friday." Our boss even said we could do this once every week! This is some of the best news I've ever heard! We're also fortunate to have awesome bosses that buy us lunch on Fridays. You do the math. Office cat once a week + free lunch Fridays = coolest job ever. Now I know there isn't another place out there with cooler perks. Thanks Ticket King!! And thanks to Nicole for bringing us such cute, furry company today. As you can see in the picture below, our street guy Gary really enjoyed Raheim's company as the two of them hung out together this morning. For lunch, I decided to get a Coldbuster from Jamba Juice to help kick this cold I feel coming on. I would live on Jamba Juice if I could. I discovered that Raheim is also a big fan of Jamba Juice smoothies! As you can see, he couldn't stay away.
Today was definitely an enjoyable day here at Ticket King and I look forward to many more!

With the Minnesota Twins out of the playoffs and all the Brett Favre drama that's been circulating lately, things have slowed down a bit for us here in the Ticket King Minneapolis office. It's days like this that we try to catch up on other tasks such as cleaning the office, organizing, filing, etc. My co-worker (and across-the-desk neighbor) Nicole, is well-known around our office for constantly having a cluttered work space because she always has so much work to do - but not today! Nicole cleaned up her work space like I've never seen before! Now it sparkles like a brand new Rolls Royce. The above photo shows you just how clean it really is since the makeover. Unfortunately I don't have a before shot so you can just use your imagination. Please note the double screen action of Johnny Knoxville & Jared Allen - "double the pleasure, double the fun" must be her motto! Oh, Nicole also notarizes stuff so hit her up! She is one cool cat, that's for sure. So is her beloved, Raheim. Go Nicole!
