Here’s your chance of a lifetime! Oxford Pennant in Buffalo, NY is running the Warmest Cold City Contest, in which you can win an all-expense-paid trip to my hometown.
I saw this contest on Facebook and then checked out the Oxford Pennant’s website. It is a legitimate company and a legitimate contest. Check it out (it takes a few seconds for the video to load, at least on my computer, just so you know).
So jump on in and enter! If you win, Teddy Rosalie and I will make arrangements to meet with you during your stay. That’s not noted in the contest information because apparently not everyone in the world (nor even everyone in Buffalo, darn it) has heard of Cordelia’s Mom. Just consider it an extra perk if you win.
I can vouch for the Hotel Henry and its 100 Acres Restaurant, having dined there recently. While I can’t attest to the quality of the guest rooms, I can state that the food in the restaurant was awesome and that the building’s architecture alone is worth a tour. Heck, I may enter the contest just so I can go back for a nice staycation.
There are so many places to see and things to do in Buffalo. While Teddy Rosalie visited the History Museum and the Buffalo Zoo in summertime, they are open year ’round, and she and I would love to show them to you.
The only drawback to the contest, as I see it, is that the airfare is paid only from a city within the continental United States, which pretty much leaves out my international readers – unless, of course, you’re willing to pay your own way to the States. I’m worth it, right?
Go for it, people! When you win, let me know so we can start planning the party.
(Note the entry deadline is February 1, and that the trip must be taken between February 8 and March 10. You all have a few vacation days available, right?)
I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
