Giveaway: A Spring Deliverance

May 12, 2011

I’m going! And I hope you will join me.

When I first wrote about A Spring Deliverance, I wasn’t sure if my schedule would permit me to go out on a school night. Yes, here in the Fussy household there is school six days a week. Just another data point on why it sucks to be my kid.

But I’m coming out to St. Joseph’s Saturday, May 14 from 6-9 p.m. for this celebration of local food, wines, music, art, and history. And thanks to the generosity of Noah Sheetz there is another pair of tickets that could have your name on it.

Now I don’t play favorites, so we’re going to keep this fair. These tickets are non-transferable. They are for you and a guest, and are yours alone. Please do not enter if you are not able to come to the event. It would be great if those of you who read this across the country and from the far corners of the earth could make it out to Albany, but I ask that you check flight availability before entering this giveaway.

Oh, you probably want to know how to enter.

This time we are keeping it simple and old school at the same time:

1)    To enter, check out the details of the event at the Chef’s Consortium website and then comment below with the answer to the following question, “What part of the Spring Deliverance are you most excited about?”

2)    For another chance to win, tweet about the event using this url: and this hashtag: #SpringDeliverance

3)    For yet another chance to win, give a little love to the Chef’s Consortium Facebook page by lovingly clicking on its “like” button. You may notice a familiar face among their fans.

Note: If you decide to extend your chances to win, please let me know in your comment. I’d hate to have anything fall through the cracks.

Just do it soon, because you only have until the stroke of midnight tonight to enter. A winner will be chosen by random from all the valid entries. Please make sure you submit a working and frequently checked email address with your comment, so I can contact you directly if you won.

If you are not a winner on Friday morning, do not despair. Tickets are a very reasonable $20. But pre-registration is required. You will have the rest of the day to e-mail, or call 914-204-9628 to let them know you are coming.

I’m glad at least two of you will be there, but I’m hoping more will show up. It would be a great place to meet those who have not made it out for a Tour de Fussy, as well as to catch up with old friends. I don’t make it out all that often, so don’t miss this chance to meet the profussor and say hi.

Good luck.

    Sweeeeeet, was just talking about this last night. It’s actually hard to pick a single thing, pretty much all of the offerings are up my alley. I’ll say what I’m most excited about is being in the venue. I’m really fond of St. Joe’s space, and glad to see it being used.

    Put me down for tweeting and fb liking, I want those tickets!

    Funny you should mention the post, “Treats for Terribly Deprived Children.” I just checked it last night when making my first-ever batch of kale chips. I didn’t care for them, and my husband wouldn’t even try them (said they looked like what he cleans off the floor after a busy night in the restaurant kitchen). My co-workers like them though, and the chips gave me a good idea for another recipe.

    I think the best part of the Spring Deliverance event is the combination of different ‘worlds.’ It’s not just food and wine, there’s an arts and historical component. I’m excited to see these areas of interest come together for an event.

    I also made sure to ‘like’ the FB page.

    It’s way too difficult to choose between Ric Orlando’s food and All Good’s baked goods, so I’ll say that I’m most excited about having both of those things on the same plate!!

    I also tweeted and liked on facebook.

    I love St. Joseph’s. It is such a great place. This seems like a really interesting event to have in that space, too. I think what is most exciting is having such a great selection of local food in one place. It’s a great chance to sample foods from different chefs and eateries in the 518.

    I did the Facebook “liking” as well.

    Trying all of these local foods in such a beautiful building is what I’m looking for. It’s the whole package–atmosphere, passion for food, and music!

    Well, I’ve been dying to see Ric Orlando in person. Also, I’ve never been to St. Joseph’s before, and from what I can tell it looks gorgeous! Definitely looking forward to it.

    I did the tweet and like thing, too :)

    Aside from checking out the participating chefs (Ric Orlando and Noah Sheetz especially) and listening to some good music, I’m looking forward to getting out of the house and enjoying a local event.

    I also went and liked the FB page.

    Just out of curiosity, Daniel, is there any danger of tickets running out? Of course, I want to win them :) but either way I want to go.

      Honestly, I have no idea. I’d check back in here first thing in the morning, and then call the hotline (if it turns out you were not the big winner). It seems unlikely. My guess is that they just want to make sure there will be enough wine glasses.

    I’m most excited about how Heldeberg Market (who seems to be making a power play for the advancement of local products and produce to the area.) We need this as one of the many steps to get Albany in line with common culinary centers. Right now, it charges .85 of nyc while delivering less than .70. This should be unacceptable for the state capital. Illinois and California be damned.

    At 7:26 am pronounced Kerosena the winner of the pair of tickets. Congratulations. I will forward her name to Noah Sheetz and look forward to seeing her on Saturday.

    The rest of you should pick up the phone and call 914-204-9628 so that you can buy your own tickets and meet us at the event. Thanks for playing. And I do really hope to see you all there.

    Chocolate Springs!!!!! I love their truffles, but it’s a bit of a hike for me to get there! Love to see them at this event!

    Gave a “like” on FB
