Winners! The Helping Phriendly Orchestra Whiskey + Phish Contest

Many thanks to all who sent in responses. It was hard to narrow down to just a handful of winners.

The task.  Complete this sentence: Whiskey + Phish = ____

The three runners up will receive admission for two to Monday's show with Helping Phriendly Orchestra at City Winery Chicago.  The grand prize winner will get 2 admissions plus the whiskey tasting flight, chosen specifically to match the flow of HPO's chosen setlist.

So, without further ado...

The first of three runners up goes to Kelley Lauginiger (@peapodmcgee), who wins by sheer force of will, sending me no less than ten entries.  The one that pushed him over the top:

Mellow Bottled-in-Bond Straight Corn Whiskey - You'll Never Get Out Of This Maize

The next one was tweeted at me by Jason Boe (@jboe4012) and made me smile the minute I saw it.

Bathtub Jim (Beam)

Michael Ludden submitted this entry within minutes of the contest being posted.  I didn't think anybody would top it.

Feckin Your Face

But eventually, Andrew Ruggeri came through with this masterpiece, which also happens to reference my brown liquor of choice.  Let's hear it for...

Maker's Marcos Equandolas!

Congrats, Andrew.  You get the pair of tickets WITH Whiskey tasting.

Thanks everybody for playing and stay tuned for more great giveways.  I'll contact the winners personally (if for some reason I can't reach you, please reach out to me).
