A few weeks ago I subscribed to Groupon, as I wanted to see what it was all about. I had yet to purchase a “Deal of the Day”, that is until Tuesday when I saw this in my email:
I had never heard of the Festival of Speeds, nor did I know where Howey-in-the-Hills was. But it seemed interesting, and it was only $10. So I clicked on the Festival of Speeds website, and found out that it is:
The Festivals of Speed produces a series of luxury lifestyle weekends featuring the world’s finest automobiles, motorcycles, watercraft, and aircraft placed for display at exclusive venues. In addition to the motor sports aspect, Festivals of Speed also displays the world’s finest luxury lifestyle products including, jewelry, fine art, exquisite dining experiences, select wine and spirits, fashion, real estate and other related products and services.
I knew Dr. B would love, love, love to go and so would I. We went to a car show last year and I had the best time! Also, when I saw that motorcycles and watercrafts would also be on display I was hooked (oh, and did I mention the part about wine and jewelry? :-).
I also saw that Groupon was offering a couples VIP package for $95. When I checked the website, I saw that for $95 per person, you can purchase tickets to the VIP reception tent which included a Top shelf open bar, luncheon, and refreshments. I thought it would be a cool experience for Dr. B and I, plus with Groupon we would only pay $95 for both of us (Top shelf open bar – sold!) !!! So, I brought my first Deal of the Day from Groupon. I’m now officially addicted to Groupon. 🙂
I have to admit that I don’t really care about the restaurant, or salon deals that they offer. I’m more so hype about the deals that will expose me to new and exciting things..for half the cost. Now those are experiences worth paying for.
As Charlie Sheen would say, “The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning” … on Groupon.
