Evening at TRIO and Facebook Photo Contest Opp

3 November 2011 1,712 views No Comment

So I’m challenging myself, along with thousands of other bloggers nationwide, to blog every day this month. And I’m asking myself, why didn’t I pick one of the months with 28 days?! Here we are on day 3, and I’m going to attempt a short post.

Last night, Kerri Holden, the PR rep for the Four Seasons Austin, invited me to join her at TRIO for happy hour (note: they picked up the tab). It was a lovely evening complete with drinks on the patio, steak fries, and pulled pork sliders. We even got a chance to visit with the lovely Mary Anne Connolly, formerly editor of Austin Woman magazine, and her friend Susan Miller of AstrologyZone (I got all fan-girl on her, since I used to read my horoscope every month religiously).

Another highlight was the delicious, house-made ice cream. TRIO serves it as a trio (of course), and my favorite was the sea-salted creme caramel.

Kerri encouraged me to take a photo with someone at TRIO for their “Faces of Four Seasons” Facebook Photo Contest. Blaine, our waiter, kindly posed for his 5 minutes of fame. I love how his hands are respectfully/awkwardly at his sides while I grab him by the scruff of the neck like we go way back.

It’s easy to enter the contest for a chance to win. From their FB page:

Each week, we’ll highlight a different area of the Hotel, sharing fun tidbits about the employees in that department. Here’s where you come in…visit Four Seasons Hotel Austin between November 1-30, 2011 and take a photo with an employee from that week’s featured department, then upload the photo here. At the end of each week, we’ll select a winner at random from all valid entries.

In addition to meeting our extraordinary employees, you’ll have the chance to win great prizes such as an overnight stay, spa treatments, dinner in TRIO and more! For full prize details, please read our Official Rules.

Good luck to those who decide to enter. For now, I’m the only one entered, and you have until Sunday to go to TRIO and take a photo with an employee to give me a run for my money. This week, they will select one entry at random to receive a dinner for four people, including manager’s choice of wine. Sounds pretty sweet to me, and I think we all can agree that I’ve probably won my fair share of contests for 2011 already.
