While awaiting several calls back about items forthcoming, allow me to dispense with these four VIP ducets to Wednesday's Iron Fork event at the Fashion Industry Gallery, where chefs John Tesar and Scott Romano will square off whilst attendees dine on samplings from the likes of Il Cane Rosso and Nana, amongst others, while shooting back Turtle's tequila. Kent Rathbun's also involved; so too March of Dimes, recipients of some of the evening's proceeds.
I have here four VIP tix, which get you in the door an hour earlier -- lucky you. I'll chop 'em up: Two tickets will go to the first two winners in this morning's giveaway, which is a simple one. Just hop in the comments and tell me what the following songs have in common. First two to do so win. Simple.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience, "Are You Experienced?"
The James Gang, "Funk #49"
The Rolling Stones, "Start Me Up"
Steely Dan, "Aja"
The Animals, "The House Of The Rising Sun"
Queen and David Bowie, "Under Pressure"
The Eagles, "The Best Of My Love"
ZZ Top, "La Grange"
The Moody Blues, "Question"
Chris Isaak, "Wicked Game"
Peter Frampton, "Do You Feel Like We Do"
Jefferson Starship, "Miracles"
Led Zeppelin, "Houses Of The Holy"
The Alan Parsons Project, "Eye In The Sky"
Golden Earring, "Radar Love"
And .... go.
