Boy I sure do dig free stuff, particularly free stuff that’s terribly festive. The Titanic after hours party celebrating the temporary Titanic exhibit that is currently at the Louisville Science Center certainly fits the bill. However it’s only free for the first 200 folks to reserve tickets. After that you have to pay $8 for admission. Well that is unless you’re one of the two lucky winners of the pairs of tickets I have to give away. First the scoop on the party:
Louisvillians are invited to “Party like it’s 1912” at a free after-hours event on Saturday, February 13, from 11:40 p.m. to 2:20 a.m. at the Louisville Science Center, 727 W. Main St.
The first 200 people to reserve tickets will be admitted free. The event lasts from the time Titanic hit the ill-fated iceberg (11:40 p.m.) until the time it sank (2:20 a.m.). Guests can visit Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, featuring 150 authentic artifacts. Titanic-related activities will happen throughout the Science Center. Complimentary desserts will be provided and a cash bar will be available, including themed cocktails: the “Sparkling Rose,” named for the fictional character from blockbuster film Titanic; Captain Smith’s Bourbon Tea, in honor of the Ship’s real captain; and an Iceberg Cocktail.
Guests will be eligible to win a trip for two to Las Vegas to see Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, courtesy of Premier Exhibitions, Inc., the developers of the Exhibition. The Exhibition in Las Vegas features more than 300 artifacts, including the largest Titanic artifact ever retrieved. A massive piece of the Ship referred to as “The Big Piece,” it weighs 15 tons and measuring more than 26 feet long. The Exhibition also features lifelike replicas from Titanic, including the Grand Staircase. The Vegas giveaway, valued at nearly $1,500, includes two tickets to the Exhibition, plus airfare and a two-night stay at the Luxor. Guests must be present to win the Vegas giveaway, and the winner will be announced at the event.
The event is open to those ages 21 and over. Two hundred free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of two free tickets per person, by calling (502) 561-6100, ext. 6580. Thereafter, tickets will be available at the discounted rate of $8 per person. (Regular admission to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is $18 for adults and $14 for children 2-12). Tickets include all activities, desserts, and admission to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and the Science.
To win one of the four tickets I have to give away tell us a good story about seeing James Cameron’s Titanic. I saw it at Tinsel Town when Tinsel Town was new and I had to have someone draw me a map to find our way out there. I’ll also say that I didn’t go of my own free will. B and her best friend just had to go see it and drug me along.
Two winners chosen at at random from all the entries I receive by 4PM on Wednesday February 10, 2010 will each win two tickets.
