As you might know, my love for Instagram is fairly substantial. You might also know that my love for whiskey is just as high. Therefore, when the people from Jameson Irish Whiskey contacted me about a contest they are running on Instagram promoting St. Patrick’s Day, I took notice. The fact that the winner of this contest will win a trip to Dublin to take part in St Patrick’s Day 2014 with Jameson this year should have you taking notice too.
I’m a massive St. Patrick’s Day fan, but I’ve mixed up the dates for it twice. One year, I showed up to a girlfriend’s house with a morning buzz dressed all in green on Valentine’s Day. Another year, I planned on being in Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day, but arrived and found out it was, once again, Valentine’s Day. That same year, I found myself in Wales at a pub with a group of 80-year-old women in town to see the Opera because I had completely messed up the dates. Romantic irony anyone?
Word to the wise: don’t bother with dates for me, I’ll mix them up.
Anyways, there is no doubt that St. Patrick’s Day is on the 17th of March. And for your information, that places it on a Monday. So if you’d rather be spending your Monday’s singing, dancing and sipping (or gulping) down Jameson’s than in an office, or Wales, you’ll want to sign up for this one. If interested, the way to enter is extremely simple. Basically, all you need to do is upload a photo from your city that demonstrates the “spirit” of your town. Then, of course, you’ll need to hashtag it #Jameson and #hellodublin. That’s it.
To keep up to date with the latest regarding the contest, be sure to also follow Jameson on Facebook.
Ok, off to Instagram with you. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Better yet, link your Instragam image in the comments below so we can all see the “spirit” of your city.
