Do you love live music and great wine as much as we do? Are you into social media, perhaps even a little too much? Then this is your chance to join a select group of other social media leaders from Social Media Club and our good friends from Southwest Airlines for a weekend of friendship, wine, live music and all things social.
Kristie Wells and I have had the good fortune of attending several Live in the Vineyard events as guests of Southwest Airlines. Now they are giving us a chance to extend this invitation to even more of our Social Media Club members and friends. It is a great event put on by some pretty fabulous people we’ve come to know and respect for their joi de vivre and community service. Not only are they great people, they have great taste in music picking incredible artists just as they are about to break and they know how to put on a show too.
Through Live in the Vineyard, we’ve learned about some of the most incredible artists and had the opportunity to meet them too. We saw F.U.N., the week they broke number one on the charts, as they played in the cellar at Nickle and Nickel. We saw Paloma Faith at Sutter Home and laughed when she asked Robert Scoble if he was that famous actor. We hung out and shot the breeze with L.P., and got some cooking tips from Michael Chiarrello. We hung out late night with one of the most prolific songwriters I ever met, Timothy Meyers (which was also the soundtrack I chose for our Happathon last night in SF).
Then there are the ‘big’ shows Friday and Saturday night at the Uptown Theatre, where you will hear even more incredible singer-songwriters as they share their craft with you. In years past we had the opportunity to hang with Ryan Star and a couple of American Idol alums, like Casey and Haley Reinhart, fell in love with Delta Rae, were mesmorized by Grace Potter, Alannis Morissette, Hedley and so many more. It is always such a great time. This year we will see Goo Goo Dolls and New Kids on the Block headlining along with many other great bands and artists.
Did we mention all the great wine and food too?
The backdrop for all this music is one of my favorite spots on earth, Napa Valley! Between the amazing events that the organizers host and the opportunity to do your own wine tasting, this is a weekend sure to please everyone.
So here’s the deal. We have a pair of tickets to give away. You can’t buy these. The only way in is to win as Radio Alice reminds us every year. Now is your chance to join us.
Southwest is all about sharing the love, and we are too, so we are taking a romantic twist to this contest. #LUVatLITV is our hashtag for this special weekend this year , so we might as well start using it now. To enter for a chance to win these tickets, show us your expression of love. Take a photo of someone, some thing or some place that reflects how you express love, maybe a #selfie or a piece of art or just a beautiful picture of a breathtaking sunset. if you capture a really amazing photo, you could just move us to give you two tickets to the big show from April 5-7, 2013.
So here’s the rules.
Entries are accepted by Instagram only and must be hash tagged with #LUVatLITV to be considered. SMC Founders Kristie Wells and Chris Heuer will select a winner that they feel is the best expression of love among all entries received between March 22, 2013 and March 27, 2013 at midnight PST. We are giving away one pair of tickets (2), travel accommodations are your responsibility. By using the hashtag for consideration of your entry into the contest, you are also giving us permission to potentially share it with others at and after the event as part of “the expressions of love” meme. Simple enough, yes?
Many thanks to our friends from Southwest Airlines who are sponsoring Live in the Vineyards and providing us these tickets to giveaway (and who have allowed us to share this great event with them).
So what are you waiting for? Get out your camera phone and share your expressions of love with us on Instagram right now!
