And how to win passes? Well, read on…
Now. How to win? Easy — find me! Here’s the when & where…
Simply find me. Not so easy, right? Well, it can be if I tell you where I’ll be and when. So here goes:
Where: DuClaw, Arundel Mills Mall. Bar area. Small space! Easy to spot!
When: 5:00pm-6:30pm, Tuesday, March 10, 2015
How: I’ll be wearing my best St. Pat’s chapeau. A’yup, a big ol’ green hat. (I’ll also be the brunette chica with glasses. The one too friendly with her stout. Yeah, that’d be me.) Come on up and say “Atomic Fangirl, I love Opera! Can I have Donna passes?” or something like that. (Be nice, be polite to the other folks at the bar.) FIRST FOUR FOLKS GET PASSES TO THE LIVE SHOW, THE NEXT FOUR GET ‘EM FOR THE 3/18 ENCORE. (Or, you’re pick as to the day if you’re one of the first four. I’m easy.)
Hope to see you at DuClaw on the 11th — and good luck everyone!
