A couple nights ago, I received free tickets to go see Spamalot from a marketing agency, focusing on Eugene bloggers. That in of itself is kind of interesting… since I don’t write about the arts at all. But the idea I think was to make an impact online fast, and bloggers and Twitter folks (Tweeps) are probably the fastest way to reach a community. Unfortunately, if you’re not interested in fly fishing or seeing photos of my kid, I’m probably not the best choice. Nonetheless, I’m going to do my part and recommend you go see this show. Here is the deal they’re offering:
# $25 Tickets w/ discount code “RABBIT”
# Valid for the following dates & times: 4/30 @ 7:30pm, 5/2 @ 2pm, 5/3 @ 2pm
# Available online
# Discount terms: Discount not valid on previously purchased tickets or combined with any other offer; only while supplies last; only for performances indicated; not valid in top price seat locations; service fees still apply; no refunds or exchanges; additional restrictions may apply – see box office for details.
My take on it? Definitely worth $25. The dialogue/action of the production is kind of like watching your friends re-enact the movie, but the singing and dancing was great. Go see this show, use the discount code, and get me some more free stuff!
Funny aside, my pal Greg is taking out J. Peterman from Seinfeld (aka John O’Hurley, star of the show), out fishing today in his wooden drift boat, and fishing with my pal Chet’s bamboo fly rods. And opening night, O’Hurley gave a shout-out to the Caddis Fly Shop.
