When Cheesetopia Sells Out Quickly: Avoiding Hate Mail

So if you've tried to purchase tickets to Cheesetopia lately, you're well aware the event sells out quickly every year. This year was an all-time record - Cheesetopia Minneapolis sold out in seven hours. Yeehaw!

Of course, successful events are amazing, but the resulting hate emails, voicemails, texts and actual postage-stamped letters from people complaining they didn't get tickets is a little depressing. 

That's why this morning, I posted on Facebook an opportunity for folks to win tickets to Cheesetopia. Every day between now and April 3, all you have to do is visit the Cheesetopia website, review the amazing list of 45 artisan cheesemakers and food producers who are attending, and then comment on the Facebook post by telling me who you're most looking forward to meeting, and why. In return, I promise to reply to your comment and practice my stand-up comedy skills. I'll pick one winner every day for 11 days. It's a win-win!
