Jersey BoysAs a boy from Jersey (who happened to be born in late December back in '63), I'm thrilled to offer tickets to an advance screening of "Jersey Boys."

The film, which tells the musical story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, opens June 20th. It will be screened at Castleton on June 17.

To win tickets, all you have to do is enter below and name your favorite thing about New Jersey (If you can't think of anything, just mention Wildwood, my home town). I'll pick winners at random until all tickets are gone.

Good luck. Oh, and here's my review of the stage production.

  • Entry
    Aside from Wildwood, has to be New Meadowlands (MetLife) Stadium

    The only time I visited NJ was 10 years ago for rowing. The Purdue Crew varsity teams were competing in Cherry Hill, so a group of novice rowers decided to go in support of the team. I really enjoyed seeing a new part of the country and would love to go back some day! My favorite thing I recall from my trip to NJ would have to be Caffe Aldo Lamberti - the food was awesome :)

    Well, I like the New Jersey accent! But I have never been to New Jersey, so I will have to go with saying Wildwood, your hometown! ;)
  • New Jersey - Not New York
    Besides the accent and the attitude, it's the drive to be known as New Jersey - and not just an extension of New York. Jersey has it's own reputation beyond that of NY.

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
