Free Summer Fun


Published:

I have a theory about giveaways: People are too pessimistic to try.

I know, I know, I've thought the same thing: What's the point? Zillions of people are playing, I don't have a chance!

But you do. Everyone has the same odds, and someone has to win, so it just might be you. Don't let the steps stop you, either. Fill out a quick form, retweet, or publish a post—the potential reward is totally worth it.

Every week we host giveaways on MNMO.com via our homepage WIN module (and notification via our weekly newsletters). Restaurants, theater tickets, trips—winnings are varied, but always fun.

Right now, you can enter to win a staycation to Alexandria, Minnesota. Check out the prize package:

  • Four-night stay in Alexandria
  • Rudy's Red Eye Grill $100 gift certificate
  • Sixth Avenue Wine and Ale $100 gift certificate
  • Two 18-hole rounds of golf at the Alexandria Golf Club
  • A free tasting at the Carlos Creek Winery and two bottles of wine

Pretty grand!

You can also track what you eat (in celebration of our June Summer Eats issue, hitting newsstands later this week) by tweeting us your food and drink pics @mnmomag including the hashtage #mnmosummereats and you could win restaurant gift certificates to enjoy more good meals.

What do you have to lose?! Just a minute to enter and possibly a few more to gloat about your sweet winnings.

Coming soon: visit MNMO.com/summerstayandplay for another great staycation package.
