Big-Time Summer Bash

I read the news today oh boy

I saw the plates-o-wings
He blew his taste buds out in a jiff
He didn’t notice that the tears had started
A crowd of people stood and stared
They couldn’t see his hidden face
Nobody was really sure
If he was the LORD OF THE WINGS

LVIMA’s epic 4th annual Big Time Summer Bash delivered on promises of being the “Party of the Year” –from the mountain of swag at the entrance to the mountain of wings seven contestants devoured to the mountain of giveaways from uber-generous sponsors.

Hosted at Buffalo Wild Wings at Warm Springs and Durango, the vibe was amazing, augmented by incredible prizes provided by our Sponsors.

The Wing Eating Prizes:
1. GoPro Camera – MediaMind
2. Kindle Fire – Rocketfuel
3. Apple TV – NetMining

The Raffle Prizes:

1. $300 Vdara Spa Package – Rocketfuel
2. Gotye Tickets – Think Realtime
3. Apple TV – Rocketfuel

Not to leave anyone out, our Sponsors also provided free swag to all attendees that included t-shirts, towels, mugs, energy drinks and various other freebies from Spongecell, Millennial Media, Specific Media and Rocketfuel.

When it cam time to crown the Lord of the Wings, Greg Cannon owned the mike with a call to arms – the race for glory in the 2012 Worldwide Hot Wing Extravaganza. Seven eaters stared down a vengeful plate of “10” blazin’ wings. Once the sauce cleared, LVIMA Board Member and Travelzoo Executive Producer Ben Jennings took home the gold — overthrowing back-to-back champ Rich Bratton (dnp: coach’s decision). GT Advertising Founder Golly Prabhu placed second and a red wig-wearing Jason Soto (CMO at Coupons 4 Humanity) showed.

Attendees also conversed about re-targeting, click attribution, Yahoo!’s new CEO and new business opportunities (man, were those biz cards a-flyin’).

And, when the party seemed to be moving on, a shoeless Shawn Rorick hopped on the bar to celebrate his 40th birthday. Here’s to ya, -s.
