Ever wonder if those contests you see on websites like Facebook are the real thing? Well I wondered and so I set out to enter several and see what happened…
I entered one such contest on Facebook on a page for DestinationAZ which is an Arizona production company obviously featuring great places to visit, where to stay, and what to see in Arizona.
The contest prize was a night’s stay at the historic (and popular with the movie stars and singers of the late 50s and 60s) resort in Scottsdale, AZ… The Valley Ho. Along with a taping of the whole event which included an interview with the show host Lauren Burgoyne and what turned out to be a six (yes, 6) course meal prepared right in our room by Chef Sean Currid.
The Valley Ho Resort is a great place to stay but even if you can’t swing the room (our prize room runs $329 +/-) the atmosphere in the restaurant and lounge make you feel like you are sitting in upscale location in the popular show “Mad Men”! It is beautiful and fun and the drinks and food is superb!
Here are some of the photos… Info on when the show is online to view will be available as soon as know!
