Win tickets to Taste of the Nation

In our e-newsletter last week, we let folks know that we would be giving away two (2) tickets to this year’s Birmingham Share our Strength’s Taste of the Nation event on August 25 at the McWane Science Center. We’ll announce the winner in this Friday’s edition of the express, so you probably want to get over to our contest page and enter.

We’ve got two more passes…

In case you’re wondering, we’ve already posted the names of the winners of the eight weekend passes we’ve been giving away for  City Stages on the contest page. We’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who entered (and there were a lot of you) – and now we’d like to say that we still have two passes left to give away

We were thinking of the most fair way to give these two passes away while seeing folks show their love for the music festival (as well as for us)… and we’ve settled on giving them away separately. Here’s the catch, we’ve got to see you tomorrow (Friday) at lunchtime over at Java and Jams (321 20th Street North).

So, who won the first four passes?

We’ve got the names of the first two winners of weekend passes to City Stages 20!

Congratulations to Trey McClure and Geno Pearson! We’ll be sending you emails later today so you know where you can pick up your passes.

The entry form is still open and we’ll be announcing the winners of two more pairs of weekend passes next week Monday. If you entered last week before 5 p.m., we’re going to ask you to resubmit your entry.

We’re also going to ask that you bear with us as we’ll unveil our City Stages section on Wednesday instead of today…

Speaking of contests…

Wade on Birmingham is still giving away two (2) sets of passes to the 2nd annual Preserve Jazz Festival in Hoover, AL on June 1 – and you’ve only got until 12 p.m. TODAY to get over there and enter to win!

The festival brings together some of the biggest names in smooth jazz and gives you a great venue to enjoy it in! Go on over there…

So, about those City Stages tickets…

When we last left our friendly neighborhood blog for the holiday weekend, we teased you about giving away tickets to City Stages 20 this week(we also teased about our upcoming concert in July, but more on that later on)…

Despite some delays this morning, we’re now happy to finally invite you to enter our latest contest! We’re giving away two (2) sets of weekend passes to the music festival each week for the next two weeks.

So don’t just sit there, enter for a chance to win (and tell your friends too).

Remixing the classics, Scrollworks style

Scrollworks logoEarlier this week, Scrollworks and the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra (MYO) announced a remix contest. For those not familiar with the concept, you’ll want to check out the details on their blog. You get to rework a recording of the MYO in concert performing Paganini’s “Moses Variations” with Michael Fernandez, principal violist of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

Why should you be interested in this? Because you have a chance to win $250, that’s why! That and it means that you’ll want to go to the MYO’s concert at the Carver Theatre on May 11 to find out who wins. You may also want to take a moment and learn more about this incredible project taking place in The Magic City…

UPDATE: Enter for a chance to win a Verizon Wireless Venus!

Editor’s note: The time that the entry form will be closed was changed in the entry. 

We figured that since there were several of you that hadn’t had a chance to come out to the anniversary party last week that we’d extend an invitation to you so you’d have a chance to enter and win!

Click here to visit our anniversary party info page to learn more about and enter to win a Verizon Wireless Venus! You’ve got until 5 10 p.m. TODAY to fill out the online form and submit, so get over there!
