He may be on his way out of The Tonight Show door, but Jay Leno isn't looking to settle down anytime soon. For starters, he's bringing those one-liners and witticisms to North Texas for one night in Casa Mañanas "Laugh With a Legend Gala," benefiting the organization's arts education and outreach programs. The "Gala" on the end of the title means this ain't your ordinary stand-up show. VIPs will be treated to a reception with a fancy meal by The Ashton Depot, a live silent auction (with guest auctioneer Jody Dean), killer seats and dancing to live music by Cuvee (or hanging out by the open bar) after the show. Individual tickets will run you $250 or $500, depending on how closely you want to inspect the world's most famous chin, but will get you reserved seats and access to the swanky open bar party. Support arts education, drink free booze and see Jay Leno be raunchier than network television allows...sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Tickets can be purchased at the Casa Mañana Theatre box office at 817-332-2272, or in person at 3101 W. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth. For more information, visit casamanana.org.
