PYT’s Tommy Up never shies away from a fun promotion (nor does he neglect to tell you about it a million times), but this new Wilco promotion may be one that is worth shouting about. Check it out:
“So, my good bud James ‘You Can Call Me Jimmy’ Sutcliffe over at Live Nation hit me up a couple of months ago and was like, ‘Got Wilco playing Electric Factory on April 10th. Show is going to sell out in 10 seconds, but Wilco’s manager wants to reach out to some new fans and let them know about the show. What if we do a special limited WILCO burger and every day we award one person who orders a pair of tix?’”
“So I said, ‘Jimmy, there’s no off switch on the genius machine, is there? Whatever we have to do to set up this WILCO Burger situation, let’s set that up…’”
“In keeping with Wilco’s Chicago origins, we have blended the world famous Chicago-style Bratwurst Dog with a burger. It’s pretty much a revelation. We take a juicy beef patty, top it with Asiago Cheese, then top it with a grilled Bratwurst. Then the Chicago-style fun stuff: Emerald Relish, Mustard, Chopped Onions, Yellow Hots and our top secret Chicago-style ingredient, which we call “Gobble’s Magic Dust”. Of course, this particular Pretzel Roll and burger pairing is in honor Chicago’s famous burger joint, Kuma’s Corner.”
“When you order the burger you’ll be given a raffle ticket for a pair of FREE tix to the way, way, way sold out show on Saturday night. The drawing is here at PYT this Friday at 6pm and we are giving away THREE pairs. It’s a can’t lose situation.”
RSVP on the Facebook Event Page and if you happen to try the burger, let me know how it is in the comments.
