’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ presents…

by Maureen McCabe on January 18, 2013

2013 Columbus Area Entertainment BookThe drum roll please.  ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ proudly presents an Entertainment Book to Alyssa Griffith Griffin.

Alyssa is the winner of the drawing outlined in ” That’s Entertainment: 365 Things to do in Columbus, Ohio“  The drawing was for a 2013 Entertainment Book. The Entertainment Book has over $50,000 in discounts (the cover tells me so)  Columbus, Ohio edition of course.

Each comment or post added to the ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ Facebook page (link in the side bar here on ColumbusBestBlog.com)  got an individual an entry to the drawing.

Thanks to Kelly, Kristin, Nicole, Peggy, Jocelyn, Teressa, Julie, Liz, Tiffany, Kelly, Sherry, Chris, Ender, etc.  All the names of all those who commented (and added something to the page were included in the drawing. Only one person added ‘a thing to do’  to ’365 Things to do in Columbus, Ohio’ Pin Happy Girls… name (?) or alias anyway was in the drawing with Kelly, Kristin, Nicole, Peggy, Jocelyn, Teressa, Julie, Liz, Kelly, Sherry, Chris, Ender, etc.

Adding a thing to do in Columbus, Ohio on the Facebook page

Pin Happy Girl, added taking photos of her children with the statues along the Scioto Mile in downtown Columbus as an entry.

Adding a thing is relatively easy.  To add a ‘thing to do’  to ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ just share it.   Pictures work best because it is Facebook, but words can work.  You add a thing.  I share the thing as ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio.’

Another person added a comment on the ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ timeline…  I am not that good at Facebook, I do not really get what that means but it got her an entry in the drawing.   I should look at the ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ timeline for the comment and see how it is on the timeline but not on a comment. Perhaps it is on a comment further back on the timeline and the Facebook notification is just different because it is an older post.

The drawing

All the names (and aliases) were written on a little yellow sticky note and one of my co-workers / boss (at the real estate office) drew Alyssa’s name.  He had no idea what was going on, he thought he’d won Alyssa.

Sorry Tom.

Congratulations Alyssa!

Speaking as 365 Things To Do In Columbus Ohio, yesterday I said ” And the winner is Alyssa Griffin for saying “Im excited for this!” on January 11 at 8:23am.”

The Entertainment Book drawing while on a Facebook page was NOT sponsored, endorsed, etc. by Facebook.  Or Entertainment Book…or the company I work with.  The drawing was from   ColumbusBestBlog.com and me (Maureen McCabe.)

 The drawing  is over… life in Columbus goes on

The drawing for the 2013 Entertainment Book is over.  If you like raffles and give-aways there is an event in Columbus on Saturday for you.  This Saturday in the Polaris area at Earth Fare!  The Earth Fare update, which I just re-shared as ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ says:


“Get ready for our HUGE wellness event this Saturday from 11-3! 50 raffle give aways! A bike raffle give away! Tons of free, delicious food samples! Nutrition speakers and presentations! You don’t want to miss this. Mark those calendars:)  “
Earth Fare Columbus

That event at Earth Fare is  Saturday, January 19, 2013.  Earth Fare is located at1440 Gemini Place, Columbus, Ohio 43240.  That is the Polaris area, in southern Delaware County.
I still want to go to the Earth Fare event.  I want to win the bike.  I have a bike I do not ride, but I want to win the bike. Maybe I would ride a new bike.  I am just that way.

I would like to do another giveaway with the Columbus Earth Fare.

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  There are events in many central Ohio communities to observe the holiday and honor Dr. King If I see any added on Facebook I will share those with ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio.’   You can too.  See events, share them. Please.

Monday schools are closed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium are FREE.    That’s a thing to do in Columbus Ohio.

Edit January 20, 2013, it’s Alyssa Griffin. Sorry Alyssa! I hope I have it right on Facebook … no her name is here, further down in the post correctly quoting what I said on Thursday on ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio.’
