There are a couple of great things about being a blogger. Most of the time, we are able to get up close and personal with a lot of movies and festivities before the general public. However, I will have to say the BEST thing about being a blogger is being able to do just that AND give away the same chances for those of you who come through and hang out with me on a regular basis.
I do so enjoy reading your comments and you sharing your stories with me and the rest of my houseful. I promise you I do.
So, here’s the deal. Next month, the kiddies, Mr. Houseful and I will be moseying on down to Navy Pier to check out the Chicago Toy and Game Fair which will take place the weekend of November 17 & 18 from 10am – 5pm. The best thing about that is, every week until the fair comes up, the Houseful will be giving away a family pass! That’s right, that’s five passes to give out and if you don’t win the first time, there are four more chances.
For those of you that don’t know, the Chicago Toy and Game Fair is the largest public toy and game show in the nation. It will feature the holiday season’s newest offerings from some of the bestselling brands in the world, as well as critically acclaimed, award-winning games from independent retailers. This would be a FANTASTIC time to get a heads up before all your friends as to what toys and games will be HOT this season! Since it’s the weekend before Thanksgiving, you’ll have your shopping list ready nice and early!
Just so you know, if you’re a Star Wars fan, there will be a luncheon – I’m just saying. Break out your storm trooper costumes and dine with the greats!
So, here’s what you have to do – in the comment section below, let me know what your favorite game as a child was and if you still play it with your family. That’s it! Hopefully, we’ll see you there!
This weeks giveaway will end on Friday, October 19th (my 5th year anniversary!) at 11:59 pm.
