ew York is my favorite domestic flight weekend. I haven’t been in almost a year, which is kind of astounding. It seemed like as soon as I had earned a disposable income, Edith and I were scooping up JetBlue deals so we could line up outside of TKTS in the rain. The East Coast in general has certainly been through a trial this fall, but I still can’t wait to go back. Every trailer for Les Miz is a reminder that there’s a seat somewhere along Broadway waiting for my ticket to fill it. Every box of ramen in the new office is a reminder that there are bowls of Momofuku and Ippudo to carbload. (Note the noodly “N” drop cap.)
Conveniently, here comes Citybuzz with a temptingly easy Instagram contest and an impressively generous prize pack. Not only can you and your +1 get two nights at an Affinia boutique hotel, but you also get flown in for free. (Having worked in marketing, lemme just say, not every easy travel contest figures in the air fare!) Assuming you know how to appeal to folks on Instagram (y’know: puppies, food porn, hot sweaty architecture), snap a pic worthy of the New Museum – because that’s who’ll be judging the entries!
