Strictly Sail Long Beach Ticket Giveaway

I posted about this fabulous event a few days ago and I'm excited to give you guys the opportunity to win some tickets.

With the temperatures finally coming down a bit in the IE, I can only imagine how beautiful it must be by the sea. The best way to spend that kind of day...? Um, yeah, by the sea. On the docks, touring a boat. Or better yet, on a paddle-boat.
