I won a trip for 2 to NY (Jones Beach, Long Island) from a text sweepstakes. It's to see The Fray and Kelly Clarkson in concert at the Nikon Theater on Jones Beach. Thank you Diet Coke and 7-Eleven and eprize! The same woman who arranged the travel when Lisa and I went to Italy in 2009 (from the trip we won from adidas), is taking care of the travel arrangements for this trip. Jean from www.travelbydesign.com/ handles travel arrangements for prize winners for companies like eprize. How cool is that? She remembers me from the Italy trip.
I'm taking my sister, Mary, for 3 days in late August. Travel day - see the concert - travel day, so there won't be much time to do a whole lot in NY. We could go into NYC but it would mean bus, the Long Island Railway and then subway. Hmmm... ok, maybe not. We'll have fun regardless, even if Mary has to pretend to like Kelly Clarkson for a day!
