a peek inside the fishbowl

It’s a little late for Mother’s Day, but how would you like to win a night at the theatah?

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Giveaways and product reviews

The kind folks at Knock on Wood Communications have given me the green light to give away a pair of tickets to the opening night production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. It’s coming to the NAC between May 27 and June 1. (Read up on it here.)

Sound good to you? Leave your name in the comments below and I will do a random draw for the winner. 

Easy huh?

The rules (because there has to be a few):

– The draw is for two tickets for opening night on May 27.
– Please, only one comment per person. Duplicate entries will be deleted.
– I’ll do a random draw at noon on Monday May 19th, 2008.
– I’ll post the name of the winner and contact them by email. 
– I will give the winner contact info for the promoter
– It’s up to the winner to coordinate pick up of the tickets.

That’s it! Good luck. It looks like a good show!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
