Thanks to Brad over at Tactics Productions for pointing this out to me: The Indie-Verse site and 35 Denton festival peeps have teamed-up to give music-loving singles the hook-up in love and tunes. They have just announced the 35 Denton Blind Date contest in which three pairs of tickets will be awarded to contest winners.
The plan is to pair six guys and six gals to set up with three other contestants. They have started taking entries already once their announcement posted. Plus, they are open to same-sex contestants — if enough apply. Once contestants have been selected, they follow up with three virtual dates on Twitter escaping the need for a shave and a shower. Score! Twitter convos are #hashtagged so the date can be followed and the final determination on the best blind date(s) and bam! 35 Denton tickets. It’ll just be up to you to sweep someone of their feet in 140 characters minus the appropriate tags. You can do it. From Indie-Verse.com.
So here’s the plan… we’ll be picking 6 lucky guys and 6 lucky girls and setting them up with 3 of our other contestants. Our last year’s winners, Deb Doing Dallas, will be helping us out in the selection process, since we’re just as blind in this whole dating thing as you all seem to be… maybe she’s got a great POV. We’ll start taking entries as soon as this post is live… We’re TOTALLY open to same-sex contestants, but you have to specify… if we have enough, it’s on.
