    REMINDER:

    The NFL changed its bag policy, only clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags will be permitted inside NFL stadiums. Under the new policy, fans will be allowed to bring one bag into stadiums and that bag must be clear and not exceed 12 inches by six inches by 12 inches. Chanel, Prada and Gucci might not be on board with the new policy, which will prohibit purses from NFL stadiums. Small clutch bags are still permitted, as long they're no bigger than "the size of a hand." "Our fans deserve to be in a safe and secure environment," NFL vice president and chief security officer Jeffrey Miller said in a statement. "Public safety is our top priority. This will make the job of checking items much more efficient and effective. We will be able to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We appreciate our fans' cooperation." Here's a list of items from the NFL that you will not be allowed to bring into stadiums: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size. Just to be clear: You can still bring a camera, binoculars or a tablet into the stadium, you just can't bring any of those items in a non-clear bag. So what can you bring into an NFL stadium this year? Here's a picture of a transparent tote bag that would be permissible under the new policy.

    For you armchair coaches the game is airing on WJXT!

    Have a great weekend & GO JAGS!!!!

    Posted Under: Quality of Life in Jacksonville, Entertainment & Nightlife in Jacksonville, In My Neighborhood in Jacksonville  |  February 20, 2013 6:30 AM  |  523 views  |  No comments

    Billy Elliot The Musical

    BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL is the joyous celebration of one boy’s journey to make his dreams come true. Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising talent that inspires his family and his whole community and changes his life forever. A big musical with an even bigger heart, BILLY ELLIOT will enchant the dreamer in all of us.

    Based on the international smash-hit film, BILLY ELLIOT is brought to life by a phenomenal cast and the Tony Award-winning creative team -- director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall – along with music legend Elton John, who has written what the New York Post calls “HIS BEST SCORE YET!”.

    Some adult language.
