About the movie:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Paul Shaffer Discount Tickets – Ames Center, Burnsville

Most of us know pianist and comedian Paul Shaffer as David Letterman’s sidekick and band leader for more than 30 years. All that time he delivered lots of witty banter and music every night. Get ready to see Paul Shaffer & The World’s Most Dangerous Band With Valerie Simpson live July 1st at Ames Center in Burnsville and keep reading to see how you can get tickets for half price!

Shaffer also recorded with such diverse artists as Diana Ross, Yoko Ono and Robert Plant’s Honeydrippers. He composed the LATE SHOW theme song and, with Paul Jabara, wrote the Number One ’80s dance hit “It’s Raining Men,” performed by the Weather Girls and re-recorded by Geri Halliwell for the “Bridget Jones’s Diary” soundtrack, topping the British pop charts in 2001. In 2002, he received his first GRAMMY, Best Country Instrumental, for the Earl Scruggs and Friends album, and co-produced an avant-garde jazz album for his mentor, Tsziji Munoz. Paul Shaffer’s “This Day in Rock” is a daily interstitial feature nationally syndicated by Envision Radio.

In his touring show, Paul Shaffer lights up the stage with his group, The World’s Most Dangerous Band, hot on the heels of the release of their latest album. They’ll be joined for this concert by singer Valerie Simpson, half of the songwriting/performing/producing duo formerly known as Ashford and Simpson. Their award-winning collaborations began 4 decades ago and she along with her late husband Nick Ashford have penned classic hits such as, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “You’re All I Need to Get By,” “Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand,” “I’m Every Woman,” “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing,” “Solid,” and “Your Precious Love”.

Create Your Dream Ice Cream Flavor – Kemps Locally Crafted Sweepstakes!

cbias disclosure#KempsLocallyCrafted #cbias

I think that most all of us who grew up here in Minnesota also grew up with Kemps Ice Cream! I remember always having at least two cartons in our freezer. One of vanilla for topping pies and making shakes (my dad made the BEST shakes with fresh raspberries) and another carton of a fun flavor – toasted almond fudge and mint chocolate chip were always favorites. While those flavors are still delicious, there are lots of newer flavors that we never even would have dreamed of as kids – flavors like Moose Tracks, Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll and Caribou Coffee Java Chunk.

In our family today, we have a big gender divide when it comes to ice cream flavors. The boys are what us girls like to call “boring” and only like to eat plain vanilla. We girls however, like to have “stuff” in our ice cream and the more imaginative the flavor the better! We had a fun family day on Saturday and to prep the snacks I headed to Target for ice cream. I got Old Fashioned Homemade Vanilla for the boys and Double Fudge Moose Tracks for the girls – so good!

If you could create any Kemps Ice Cream flavor imaginable, what would it be? I can think of lots of individual ingredients I would love in my ice cream, but finding the correct combination is the tricky part! Candy pieces, cookie chunks and nuts are usually my favorites and I really love a sweet and salty combination.

Kemps is always on the lookout for new flavors and now they are asking YOU to create your own new Kemps ice cream flavor in the Kemps Locally Crafted Sweepstakes! By submitting your flavor idea you have a chance to win a year’s supply of Kemps ice cream! They are even ready to help you create your flavor by letting you know all of the base flavors you can start with and then all the swirls, and mix-in toppings that you can include.

My idea for a delicious flavor is Salty Snack Bowl. It would start with a salted caramel base with a peanut butter swirl and then have chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate covered peanuts mixed in. YUM! Use the widget below to enter your own flavor idea. Kemps will select the best flavors from this Sweepstakes and produce for purchase later this year. Plus, once you submit your flavor idea you can download a $.50 off coupon for Kemps ice cream products!
