Brilliant pianist and songwriter Jim Brickman has earned six gold- and platinum-selling albums, charted 28 adult radio hits, and lassoed two Grammy nominations.

Cleveland Rock of Ages, a night of live classic rock mastery held at the stadium of the class A affiliate for the Cleveland Indians, opens with the lead singers of Rare Earth, Sugarloaf, Blues Image, and Iron Butterfly all joining forces as the Classic Rock All-Stars and performing songs in the style of rock’s golden era. After a preliminary injection of sonic heaviness, prepare for shock rock’s one-man governing body, Alice Cooper. The heavily mascaraed maestro, well-known for mega-hits like “School’s Out,” “Poison,” and “All I Want Is a Jar of Nickels (For Christmas! For Christmas!),” will take to the stage bearing gifts of rock.
At Playground World, children slide, soar, and bounce through a safe and spacious party room packed with playground equipment. For two hours, up to 14 adventurous tykes can frolic unbridled aboard Woodplay Play Systems, wooden forts, climbing walls, monkey bars, and swing sets. Netted trampolines offer safe springing, and a series of Goalsetter basketball hoops unleash each child's inner Kareem Abdul McFly. Parents can stash their own refreshments in the party room's refrigerator, ensuring that ice-cream cakes won't turn into milkshakes. Playground World requires one adult for every four children attending the birthday party to help ensure safe play and to officiate arguments over who gets the corner slices of cake. Groupon customers should adhere to the party guidelines.
