Are you one of those still trying to secure a VIP Party Pass for CON*tourage’s late-night events at Dragon*Con? Are you a fan a good food and tasty brews and at least 21 years of age? Are you a Star Wars fan? Are you near the Atlanta? Well, if so, you are in luck!
Diesel Filling Station, a Diamond Sponsor for CON*tourage’s events at Dragon*Con 2012, has been presented with 4 VIP Party Passes which they’ll be awarding on Tuesday, August 28th.
How do you enter for a chance to win? It’s pretty simple actually…read on!
1.) Attend NERD-CORE TRIVIA at Diesel Filling Station on Aug. 14th, 21st and 28th (8pm).
2.) During each Tuesday night NERD-CORE TRIVIA event in August (Aug. 14th, 21st, and 28th), a few select words will be announced. Write those words down. NOTE: Different words will be announced each of the 3 nights.
3.) Put all of the the announced words together to form a correct phrase and you’ll be entered to win the VIP Party Passes on Tuesday, August. 28th.
Each NERD-CORE TUESDAY TRIVIA night in August at DIESEL FILLING STATION is also special because it’s STAR WARS MONTH! You might have heard about Star Wars at some point in your life, if not, Google it. If you haven’t had a chance to visit DIESEL FILLING STATION, it’s a full-menu/bar restaurant located at 870 N. Highland Ave. in Atlanta, Georgia. You can check them out online at DieselAtlanta.com and also follow them on Facebook at Facebook.com/DieselAtlanta.

During the past 2 weeks we received some very interesting videos from those wanting to stay in the CON*tourage Suite. Those wanting to enter the contest to try and win a space were asked to submit a short YouTube video introducting themselves to CON*tourage and also explain why they wanted to stay in the coolest, most happenin’ space in the Hyatt. Overall we received 12 video entries. We’d like to thank each and everyone one of you who took the time to film, upload and then share it with us. Unfortunately, we could only pick 1-3 people. And…unfortunately…we also promised all that submitted videos that we wouldn’t publish them online
Michael and Lauren, based out of Atlanta, GA were choosen as the lucky winners! Their video was very informative, with both telling us their geek-related hobbies and why they love coming to Dragon*Con. They also were very enthusiastic about helping with party set-up and meeting new people which we can gaurantee will happen Another part of their video that helped win points with us is that they said they tend to wander around the Con…looking for people they know and to meet new people…which is the main reason CON*tourage was founded back in 2008. We wanted to give like-minded creative geeks an outlet and place to find friends at Cons that they’d feel comfortable with and return in the future. And of course to party with.
So…CON*grats to Michael and Lauren for securing the coveted spot in the CON*tourage Suite for Dragon*Con 2012. All of the CON*tourage CRUE looks forward to meeting you both in just over a month! Below is a screen grab from the YouTube the couple submitted.
In 2011, it happened at the beginning of August. In 2012, it happened three weeks sooner, on the 12th of July. Yep…that’s right. All of the reserved CON*tourage VIP Party Passes for Dragon*Con 2012 have been snatched up. If you didn’t have a chance to reserve a VIP Party Pass you aren’t out of options as there are still Regular Party Passes available for reserving. Remember, both the VIP and Regular Party Passes are required for entry to our 2012 late-night events which you can read about HERE.
What’s the difference between a VIP and Regular Party Pass (both required for entrance)? Well, the CON*tourage VIP Party Pass allows attendees (21+) access into our late-night events 1 hour early, and also provides some great perks like a commemorative 2012 t-shirt, party cup, premium lanyard, a collectible CON*tourage button (new this year) and keepsake laminated Party Pass. So if you’d wanted to get access to our exclusive late-night events, a Regular Party Pass is still a great option BUT we will soon run out of those also….so don’t say we didn’t warn you. We will have a VERY limited amount of Party Passes available while at Dragon*Con but being in the right place at the right time might be more of a challenge than you’d want to take on as we all know how busy and hectic this awesome Con can be. NOTE: VIP Party Passes will be available to future Sponsors for our events at Dragon*Con 2012 (if interested in becoming a Sponsor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you had your heart set on a VIP Party Pass(es) we will still have a few options before now and Dragon*Con 2012 for people to win them. The most notable is the CON*tourage Monthly PHOTO CON*test which awards winners with VIP Party Passes. Interested in entering? All of the info. you need to enter the Monthly PHOTO CON*test can be found HERE. We’ll make announcements on the CON*tourage Facebook Fan Page about where you might also be able to secure a VIP Party Pass, other than the PHOTO CON*test…if a VIP Party Pass is what you had your heart set on. But as we said, we still have Regular Party Passes available for reserving if you are wanting to get access to our late-night events. All of the info. you need to reserve a Regular Party Pass can be found at www.CON-tourage.com/dcon2012.
And remember, if you are wanting to pre-order our Commemorative 2012 t-shirt, designed exclusively for us by zombie artist Billy Tackett, orders must be submitted by deadline July 31st, 2012. We won’t be selling these at Dragon*Con but will be shipping them BEFORE Dragon*Con in case you want to wear them Labor Day weekend (why wouldn’t you?). To see the t-shirt design and place an order, please visit our Merchandise page, located at www.CON-tourage.com/merchandise. REMEMBER…each Commemorative t-shirt ordered also comes with a Regular Party Pass!
