// THE BEST BROOKLYN BOWL SHOW OF 2012 //

Vote for your favorite show in 2012, and enter to win TEN free pairs of tickets in 2013!

2012 was a really baller year, and it’s hard to sum it up one way or another. But we’ve never been one to pass up a challenge, so to hell with it — we’re gonna try.

We (with the help of our Facebook and Twitter friends) chose ten of our favorite shows at the Bowl this year, and are taking it to the world (you) to crown the BEST show at Brooklyn Bowl in 2012. And THEN, we’re going to choose one of the voters randomly, and award them with 10 FREE PAIRS OF TICKETS to shows at the Bowl in 2013. How’s that for a kick-off?

The vote is now open! To vote and enter to win the free tickets, visit us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. You can cast your vote by commenting on our contest photo (the one you see above, with the contenders), or by tweeting at us with the hashtag #BestOfBB2012. We’ll choose a winner on February 1. Good luck!
