Cliburn Festival Tickets on the Cheap

Category : entertainment, Featured

The Cliburn Festival, featuring the works of Chopin, is happening this week from March 5-8 in Fort Worth. And tickets aren’t cheap – they start at $20 but can go up to as much as $90 per person for the best seats (for the Bass Hall performances). However, there are a few ways to get seats for cheaper. Here are some ways to get discounts:

Be a student. Students can get tickets for $10 each, beginning 1 hour before each performance. The website doesn’t say, but I would assume you’d need to bring your student ID along.

Wait until the last minute. One hour before each sold-out performance, a line will form at the Bass Hall box office to sell tickets in case of last-minute cancellations or no-shows. If any seats are available, you can get them for $20 apiece – which could be a great deal if the canceled reservation is for a good seat! As always, standby tickets aren’t guaranteed, and there’s no promise you’ll be able to sit with your companion. (This only applies to the Bass Hall performances.)

Go to a Cliburn Session. These are relaxed performances held in unusual venues, and all tickets are $20 each. The next Cliburn Session will be March 19 at The Live Oak. (Buy ahead of time, since at-the-door tickets are $25.)

See a list of Cliburn Festival performances here.

Free CrossFit Workout in Fort Worth

Category : entertainment, Featured, fitness, free

On Thursday, March 5 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., CrossFit Chisholm Trail will host Dude Crew, a “membership-free monthly meet up for dudes dedicated to exploring and enjoying our active community of Fort Worth.” Though the title says “dudes,” they say “dudettes” are welcome too. There’s no description of the particular workout that will be done, but since it’s at a CrossFit facility, you should probably get ready for some WOD goodness. Afterwards, members will meet at Lone Star Oyster Bar next door for a post-workout meal (on your own dime).

CrossFit Chisholm Trail is at 474 Bryant Irvin Rd, Suite 934 in Fort Worth.
