Cubana For The Win
Eagle eyed readers may recall we teamed up recently with our muckers at Cubana for a whopper of a giveaway.
The prize? Free run of Cubana for one lucky winner and up to 99 friends – plus a selection of their award winning tapas and entertainment from their awesome house band. Not too shabby, eh?
To enter, all you had to do was ‘Like’ their Facebook page and ‘Share’ the competition with those you’d no doubt be inviting to the party if you won. Simples.
Saturday November 10 saw the grand draw taking place – and, in true Cubana style, they made a real event of it.
First, the names of all those who entered were plastered on a board and a pic of it posted online via Facebook– causing plenty of excitement amongst Cubana’s followers.
Next, all the names were put into a hat, and three names drawn out by Cubana boss hog Adrian – and a picture of the three lucky finalists uploaded to Facebook.
Finally, all three names went back in the hat, with one winner to be drawn. The lucky name out of the hat – Mary Wan. Now, here’s where the excitement gets turned up a notch. Mary (or one of her friends) now had just 1 hour to get to Cubana and claim the prize. Eek.
The race was on. A feverish Facebook community was gripped by regular status updates before that all important comment appeared on the Cubana timeline – ‘SHE’S ON HER WAY!’ One of Mary’s friends, Amie, had managed to reach her on the phone – and now both were headed to Cubana.
The clock ticking, there were mere minutes in it when Mary burst through the door – meaning she claimed the party of a lifetime!
“I can’t believe it,” smiled a shocked Mary as she sipped on complementary Champers . “I didn’t think it was real. Fortunately Amie got hold of me. I had to make my way from Hillsborough – it was a real rush. I would’ve been gutted if I hadn’t made it. As it is, I’m so happy to have won. I’m hoping to throw my partner a birthday to remember with it.”
