Livin' on a Prayer

By Anne Kenderdine

We know there are more than a few Guru readers who are also major Bon Jovi fans, and that's why we have this blaze-of-glory moment to offer you. Mr. New Jersey himself (and opener Daughtry) are coming to town for a sold-out gig on Feb. 28 at the Verizon Center, and the Gurus are giving away tickets to the show. And not just any tickets: This is a special pair that will let you get up close and personal with Jon, watching three songs from the stage itself as the band rocks out.

You have until noon on Wednesday to enter our contest. Good luck, folks, and until the winner is announced, keep the faith. We're rooting for you.

If you're going to the show, our favorite pre-concert dinner options in the neighborhood include Indian at Rasika, modern Mexican at Oyamel, Burmese at Burma, Pizza at Ella's, tapas at Jaleo or Tex-Mex from Austin Grill.

For drinks, take your date for a glass of wine at Proof, beers at R.F.D. or a fancy cocktail at PS7's or Indebleu. Meet up with the gang for pool or shuffleboard at Rocket Bar. At happy hour, the Greene Turtle Sports Bar offers good deals on basic beers and Bar Louie serves up discounted martinis. Both are just steps from the main entrance.

See more restaurants and bars located near the Verizon Center.

And, of course, we have to mention the leather-walled Tattoo, where VJs spin rock videos by Guns N Roses, Motley Crue and Aerosmith on huge TVs. If Jon's going to show up anywhere after the show, it should be here.

Is the "enter now" button not working for anyone else as well?
