free tickets for bloggers

Some area businesses are wisely reaching out to the local blogosphere. A public relations firm sent me an invitation to a blogger night at a newly renamed restaurant on Kingston Pike. I missed the event last night because I was on stage as I am every Tuesday. Les Jones was among the bloggers who were able to attend.

I have already marked my calendar for blogger night at the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. Communications Director Stephanie Burdette asked me to help spread the news that the first 50 bloggers willing to blog about the show can get a pair of free tickets to the opening night concert on Thursday September 27 at the incredible Tennessee Theatre. We are also invited to a post-concert reception with Music Director Lucas Richman, guest pianist Jeffrey Biegel and several KSO musicians. The program that night consists of music from American composers. I will especially enjoy Copland's "Appalachian Spring" and Gershwin's "An American in Paris."

Okay bloggers, here's how to get your culture fix. Be one of the first 50 to email Stephanie at The deadline is 2:00 p.m. on September 27. Act fast because I think that there are more than enough East Tennessee bloggers to scoop up all the available free tickets before the deadline. If you are willing to "pay it forward," post something on your own blog to help spread the word to the bloggers among your own readership. To be really nice, include a link back to this post.

Now that it's the hot new trend, we need to have a bloggers' night at an upcoming Einstein Simplified show. Any interest out there?

I know a blogger who would love to get back on the stage just for old time's sake.

Just checking out the Einstein Simplified site and you need to update your directions for Patrick Sullivans. I do not think people will find it by those directions since James White Parkway exit is closed.

Sounds like a good time. I'm guessing it would have to be in addition to the one at Ray's, since the whole point of that is to get attention for Ray's. But hey, no reason we can't do both.

Everyone should go see Einstein Simplifed regardless.

Thanks for the tip. I have e-mailed her to get these tickets, hopefully.

Is the Einstein Simplified show on Tuesdays free? It sounds great, and I would definitely like to check it out sometime.

Sounds like fun! I'll drop a line to see if there are still tickets available. :) Thanks!

Btw, this is the first time I've stumbled across your blog. Nice to meet you!

Hey Craig... yes, the Einstein Simplified shows on Tuesdays are free admission but you are expected to stuff some cash in the tip jar at the end of the show. Also, the good people at Patrick Sullivan's expect you to buy some food or drink.

Once a month we do a show at the Comedy Zone. Tickets for those shows are $5 each. Once again, you're expected to buy some food or drink.

Hope to see you at a show soon. Be sure to introduce yourself afterwards!
