Good morning friends—both old and new—I’m so excited I could just about burst! If you are new here (and I have a sneaking suspicion that lots of you are today), welcome! If you are a regular, you might be wondering just what is going on… well, I have great news:
I made the top 12 in Tourism Richmond’s 365 Days of Dining contest!
Over 1,500 people applied for this position and I made the top 12. For my fellow math geeks, that’s 0.8% of applicants. Needless to say, I can’t really believe that this is happening. Cue happy dance and level of happiness approaching—or probably equal to—this.
Round two of the competition will whittle the top twelve down to the top three. One of the top three will be the public’s choice, and this is where I am going to need your help!
Starting tomorrow, I need you to mobilize everyone you know to vote for me. I promise, I will never, ever, ask you to vote for me on a facebook competition ever again! I may also bake you a cupcake. (Though… you may not really want me to do that.)
Voting will run from tomorrow, April 24, 2012 at 9 a.m. PST until May 1, 2012 at 4 p.m. PST on Tourism Richmond’s facebook page. I’ll update this post—and tomorrow’s post—with more details about the process when I learn them. In the meantime:
I MADE THE SHORT LIST!
A gigantic thanks to Tourism Richmond for this amazing opportunity.
