Last Day To Enter--4 Free Tickets To Gustafer Yellowgold & Brunch, Mary Macaroni

Today is the last day to enter for 2 excellent family 4 pack ticket give aways!   Winners will be announced on Free Ticket Tuesday tomorrow.   We did begin this one on our old contest forms with Google Docs, so we'll be including those entries as well as the Rafflecopter batch this time around.  
The only mandatory entry is a comment below saying which tickets you are interested in (both is a valid option) & what music you like to rock out to WITH your kids.  Then you can earn additional entries for social media shares, follows on Twitter, FB and YouTube, etc.  If you already entered, you can enter additional times each day with documented social media shares!  **Please attempt to enter through Rafflecopter if at all possible, but I heard a few people were getting error messages.   If that happens just comment below and explain any additional entries you qualify for and I'll make sure you get counted.  Just check back tomorrow to see if you've won, because I may be missing your contact info, if that's the case.

One lucky family will get a gift certificate for brunch for 4 at Harmony Grill, the restaurant adjacent to Schubas AND 4 tickets to the 3pm Sunday Gustafer Yellowgold Show.

Gustafer Yellowgold concerts are a unique blend of live music and moving image. The minimally animated illustrations are accompanied by illustrator/songwriter Morgan Taylor’s catchy and original story-songs for a truly different multimedia experience that is entrancing children, teens and adults alike.

Gustafer is a friendly creature who came to Earth from the sun and has an unusual magnetism for making friends with some of Earth's odder creatures. His best friend is Forrest Applecrumbie the flightless Pterodactyl. Gustafer and Forrest built a small cottage-style home on the edge of an uncharted wooded area in Minnesota. He has a pet Eel named Slim (short for Slimothy) and a pet Dragon named Asparagus who lives in his fireplace and loves corn on the cob. Gustafer's pals, the Mustard Slugs practice their math under the shrubbery.

Since his creation in 2005, Gustafer Yellowgold has become an international phenomenon, acclaimed by the New York Times, which said, “The show is a cross between ‘Yellow Submarine’ and Dr. Seuss.” Entertainment Weekly praised “…The most infectious original songs. It’s like tapping into some pleasure center in the brain- both adult and kid…absurdly appealing. Grade: A.” New York Magazine named Morgan Taylor “Best Kids’ Performer” in its 2008 Best of New York Awards.
