School's almost out for the summer, and we know moms, dads, grandparents, and nannies will be looking for events to occupy the little ones. We're giving away one set of four tickets to the Dallas Zoo -- just because.

The Dallas Zoo is a wild area of wonderment for adults and kids alike. A few personal favorite exhibitions are the Elephants on the Savana and the Giraffe Feeding. Oh, and the koalas! Zoo staffers even throw little birthday parties for the animals on occasion, making them special (nutritional) birthday cakes. The zoo just makes us smile.

The contest runs through June 12, so be sure to enter the contest below before then. The prize tickets include two adult tickets and two youth tickets. The package retails at $54. Find all the details here.

Traces on Tour

Posted on tracesusa on YouTube.

Wouldn't it be nice to put away the email, the computer, and just have an evening out with family or friends? We're giving away tickets to Traces at the Winspear Opera House that'll give you an escape from reality, if only for an evening.

Here's more about the show:

    Stripping away everything you thought you knew about the big top, Traces fuses the traditions of circus with the energy of street performance to create an explosive display of emotion and physicality set to the music of Radiohead, VAST, Blackalicious, and more. It's one of Time Magazine’s "Top Ten of the Year."

Want tickets? We're picking five winners, who will each receive a pair to the show on Tuesday, June 11 -- opening night.

Enter the contest here.

The contest runs from now through June 4. We'll notify winners via email or phone. The face value of each ticket is $35. Find all the nitty gritty here.

Win a pair of tickets to see Saturday Night Live greats

Carvey, Miller, and Nealon: They saved SNL during darker days. Now, they're hitting Allen in its coming-of-age.

Allen Event Center

Carvey, Miller, and Nealon: They saved SNL during darker days. Now, they're hitting Allen in its coming-of-age.

On April 30, we brought you the news that Saturday Night Live funny guys Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon, and Dennis Miller would be performing in October in Allen. When they joined SNL in the '80s, they were part of a rag-tag cast of nobodies who soon created some of the show's favorite characters: "Hans and Franz;" Dennis Miller's mullet; and the ever-timely condescension of "Isn't That Special."

Up until their show at Allen Event Center on October 19, we're going to give away one pair of tickets per month until October 2013. Best bet is to enter the contest now so your name will be eligible for each drawing.

Pardi Gras

Pardi Gras

I'll be honest: I've never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. All the pomp and circumstance seems so fun, but the idea of waiting in line for hours to use the restroom scares me. So why not just have a little New Orleans fun right here in Big D? The DFW band Pardi Gras plays '70s, '80s, and other party music. We'd like to send you to their concert at the Dallas Arboretum for free.

We're running a contest to give two people four tickets each from today through May 16. The show is Thursday, May 23 at 7:30 p.m. Enter here.
