Was likely more baller than yours.
So in Vancouver, there is an annual "Lotus Awards" for the best of the best in advertising. If you see an ad on Canadian tv (some international stuff too) that you think is awesome or impressive, the people who made the ad will be at the awards.
Anyways, so the Lotus Awards 2009 decided to have a contest. Since this year the awards show was sort of mocking the olympics, they have 3 mascots:



Boozah, Kaffee, Tokie

Each mascot had a product, hangover cure, breath mints, rolling papers, respectively. The contest was to come up with a slogan for any of the products, the best one would win $209 and a medal.

Now as much as those mascots are a joke, these awards are the real deal, quite prestigious, even getting to go to the awards was amazing. Sitting at our table on the let was the guy who used to be the chair of the awards, and on the right were some people from an agency competing for medals.

Anyways, long story short, I won the contest and got to go to the gala event for free, which is normally about $110 for a ticket.

The venue:


Big place, bigger than I expected, and quite swanky. Drinks for an hour, then dinner, than the awards show.

I found this on my table, filled with candy:


By the bathroom (notice the olympic style stuff)


And at the end, got a sweet gold book with all the real winners in it:



Couple more pictures to come later, plus my on stage appearance.
Overall, awesome night surrounded by stunning women, great times.

My friend posted "Let the good times roll" which made me think of "Let's roll the good times" and apparently the contest organizer actually laughed at loud when they saw it. My friend then deleted his post, which made them laugh harder because they thought I had shamed him essentially. When I get the video I'll post it here and you can see it.
