Cirque du Soleil is not your parents' circus.
Since Valentine's day is coming up, and we love our readers, we are offering a gift that goes straight to the heart. We were thrilled when asked by Cirque du Soleil to sponsor a contest for our readers, giving them the chance to experience the upcoming OVO performance as our guest. Two tickets to the upcoming show.
OVO by Cirque do Soleil is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. (Sounds like Washington Ave. on any Saturday night, but we digress.) OVO opens on March 10 under the Big Top at Sam Houston Race Park.
Samba Grille sweetened the deal even more, offering dinner for two for the winners. For the three of you who've not heard of them yet, Samba Grille is the brand-new South American restaurant located downtown in Bayou Place, offering both the traditional latin rodizio grilled meats, served churrascaria-style, and some fantastic composed dishes that have been wowing both patrons and critics since they opened late last year.
Dinner at one of Houston's hottest new restaurants. Then one of the most spectacular shows you could ever see. That's our kind of evening, and one we think any of our readers will excited to win.
There's no catch. All you have to do is either leave a comment below, or e-mail our special contest e-mail address, email@example.com . We just need your name and a method of contact - e-mail or twitter (make sure you follow @htownchowdown us so we can DM you).
The contest closes on Thursday, February 10; we'll announce the winner here on Friday, Feb 11.
The fine print:
Tickets are for the performance on March 11, 2011, at 8pm. The contest is open to all adults, 18 or older. Employees of Cirque du Soleil, Samba Grille, Binetix, or their families are not eligible. One entry per e-mail or twitter address.
