Giveaway: Blue Man Group and Restaurant Week

Congrats to the winners Brandy Quinn, Paul Bixby, Lori Bremer, Stephanie, Jessica, and InPelWeTrust.

The Blue Man Group is kicking off its first-ever theatrical tour this fall, and it just so happens that the first stop is right here in Fayetteville on Sept. 2 at the Walton Arts Center.

That means some Fayetteville folks will be the first to see what those crazy blue dudes have cooked up for their year-long, 38-city tour and you could be one of them.

We’ve got a pair of tickets to the opening-night performance to give away.

It also happens to be Restaurant Week in Fayetteville, and we’ve scored some gift certificates to a few local restaurants to give away as well.

Try to win!

How To Enter
Since this is kind of a double-doozy contest, there are two ways to enter.

1. The Blue Man Group have some pretty unique talents. They drum, they dance, they paint themselves blue. I even saw a clip of them eating Captain Crunch on stage. Do you have a unique talent such as a really bendy thumb? Maybe you can you yawn and sneeze at the same time? Leave a comment and tell us what weird thing you can do, and you’re entered.

2. It’s also a Restaurant Week contest, so if you don’t have any strange talents, just name one of your favorite local eating establishments, and you’re entered.

What you’ll win
One (1) lucky winner will receive two (2) tickets to the opening night performance of Blue Man Group on at 7 p.m. Sept. 2 at the Walton Arts Center, and a $50 gift certificate good at either Shogun or Wasabi.

The second randomly drawn winner won’t get tickets to the show, but they will score a $20 gift card that will work at either Common Grounds or Hog Haus.

The next five randomly drawn winners will receive a gift certificate good for a free 28-oz. pot of tea and two cookies at Trailside Cafe & Tea Room.

That means that seven people will get a prize for entering this contest. Not bad.
