spac winter ball 2013 dallas

The drawing is now closed. The winner has been emailed.

SPACs Winter Ball isn't the kind with poofy gowns, glass slippers, and a pumpkin coach pulled by white mice. This year's version is the kind with stetsons, cowboy boots, a bourbon bar, and mechanical bull rides.

The Dallas-themed winter ball at The Hall of Springs on February 23 will have Tex-Mex food, an open bar, a Tuthilltown Spirits bourbon bar, a champagne reception, live music, a western photo booth, and a costume contest for best dressed "Texas Beauty Queen" and "JR" Oil Baron.

We have a pair of tickets to the ball, and we're giving them away.

To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:

The theme of the ball this year is "Dallas: Everything's Bigger in Texas." What's the biggest thing in the Capital Region?

We'll draw one winner at random.

Tickets for the SPAC Winter Ball are $65 before February 20, and $70 at the door. It's from 8 pm-midnight. Proceeds help underwrite the classical programming and educational activities for SPAC's summer season.

Important: All comments must be submitted by 5 pm on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 to be entered in the drawing. You must answer the question to be part of the drawing. One entry per person, please. You must enter a valid email address (that you check regularly) with your comment. Regular commenting guidelines still apply. The winner will be notified via email by noon on Wednesday and must respond by 9 am on Thursday, February 14.

If we're talking physically big, it's that Global Foundry Building up in Malta - that's BIG! Otherwise, it'd have to be the State Government :)

Caporizzo, Lee, and Aisles. The premise of the show would be that Steve Caporizzo invents a machine that he thinks will predict the weather with 100% accuracy but goes haywire and winds up switching the brain of a grizzled Private Detective with the brain of a plucky, pound puppy named "Lee." Caporizzo and Lee the puppy then join forces to try and undo the brain switch whilst also solving mysteries at local Supermarkets.
