PAST CONTEST DETAILS:

April 23rd, 2010

We really love all of our Members, and it makes us sad that there are some of you on the East Coast who can’t regularly attend Machine events.

We also really love Cabinet Magazine, and when we saw that they’re having a possibly-fancy cocktail party with impromptu sword fighting in New York soon, we realized we had a chance to do something fun for one of our East Coast Members.

Especially for all of our Members on the East Coast, or any who will be on the East Coast the night of May 1st, we’ve purchased a pair of tickets to the Cabinet Benefit Cocktail Party (a $150 value) that you, yes you, could win! And have for free! And use to get yourself and a friend into the cocktail party, where you can eat their delicious but modest snacks, and witness close-up magic, and have a generally grand old time.

The contest is simple: Guess what number Mark Allen is thinking.

Mark Allen is thinking of a number between 1 to 100, and he’s written it down on a piece of paper. He’s folded this piece of paper up and sealed it inside a Machine Project envelope. You have until 11:59pm PST on Sunday, April 25th, 2010 to email us a guess as to what the hidden number is (just ONE guess each!). By noon on Monday, April 26th, 2010 we will reveal the number on this very same webpage, and announce a winner.

In the event of a tie, we’ll come up with something (don’t worry about it).

Here’s a brief but exciting list of things happening at Cabinet’s Benefit Cocktail Party:

Saturday, May 1, 2010, 8–11 pm
