For the latter part of this week, I’ll be in (stay classy) San Diego (which of course in German means “a whale’s vagina”), acting as one of the judges in the 2013 Critics Challenge competition (an opportunity at which I jumped, as the rest of the stellar judging cast is, in the words of Ron Burgundy’s deep-timbered narrator, “the ballz!”).
Given my bordering-on-crazy travel schedule this month (and based on the huge response to our last giveaway here on 1WD), I’m opting for another giveaway to assuage your genetic psychological need to respond to the new and different.
Part of Dead Bolt’s well-positioned marketing focus is the idea of pushing the envelope in iconoclastic ways, which is a bit of a recurring theme in the features here on 1WD. Dead Bolt have also been heavy into the independent music scene this year – another topic quite close to my ticker. So for this giveaway, here’s how it’s gonna go down:
- Leave a comment on this post and let us know who in the wine world you most admire for going against the grain (there’s an oak-aging/anti-oak-aging joke in there somewhere).
- In one week, on June 25, 201 at 8PM ET, I will randomly select a winner from the commenters, who will receive the $100 gift card to StubHub.com.
To get you in the Summer concert going mood, I’m including an embarrassingly staged photo of me from my band’s recent WSTW FM radio appearance, and a clip from that show in which we performed a wine-related tune live on the air (for more on that song, titled Wine Kissing Days, check out the video premier from 2011). You might like it, in which case you’ll be primed for both wine drinking and Summer concerts, or hate it, in which case if you win you’ll be able to go see some other act that’s actually good!
In any case, at least it gives you some background music while you’re writing your comment…
Cheers – and good luck!
