Have Some Melon, 2.0

Earlier this summer, we posted about an opportunity to feast your eyes on some melon. It seems summer has come full circle: on August 3rd, City Tap House plans to celebrate the all-important “National Watermelon Day” from 4-8 p.m.

The event will include plenty of watermelon goodies (namely a variety of watermelon drank for just $4-5) and a watermelon eating contest at 7 p.m. And randomly, winners get tickets to see Kings of Leon (!!!). So like, even if the U.S. defaults on its loans August 2, at least you’ll have something to eat come the morrow.

Another Way To Win Floor Passes -- Sad your Jackson Pollock interpretation didn't win our Fling contest? SPEC says you can try the blind luck approach and sign up for their listserv here. A winner of two floor passes will be chosen at random provided you sign up before midnight Sunday; people who were already on the list are already in the running.
You Have Until Midnight To Enter Our Contest -- You can win free floor passes! Why would you not want to send us your creative interpretation of Fling? Send us what you've got by midnight.
Stop Sending Us Stupid Shit And Actually Enter Our Contest -- If you're going to enter our Fling contest (which you can still do until Monday!), your entry has to be relevant to Fling. That's the whole point. So don't send us some random video you made for a class six months ago about trade liberalization in Latin America. Let the real creative juices flow!
