Win This! Weekend Stay At NYC’s Buckingham Hotel

buckingham hotel g1 jpg
Beyond the stuffed bears and chocolate hearts, Valentine’s Day is about being with the people you love, whether that’s your boyfriend, sister, or best friend. The best way to celebrate a relationship isn’t with presents, but with a little quality time together. Win our final Valentine’s Day contest, and you’ll get to spend a memorable weekend with a special someone at New York City’s Buckingham Hotel.

Opened in the late ’20s, the Buckingham Hotel is across the street from Carnegie Hall. The hotel is decorated with a subtle musical theme, representing the many virtuosic performers who have stayed in its rooms while in town to perform. The lobby paneling is even made from the same wood used to make violins!


WIN THIS! We’re giving away a two-night stay at the Buckingham Hotel (not including travel, food, or beverages), but you have to work if you want it. Tell us your best tip for spending quality time with your significant other by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 18. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner next Friday. Click HERE for the official rules.

Win This! Viliv S7 Premium Mobile Tablet Powered By Intel

It’s terribly difficult to go without internet access — we go through withdrawal when we can’t get online — but who wants to lug around a laptop everywhere they go? We’ve become reliant on smartphones, but you can only do so much with a tiny screen and an even tinier keyboard. The viliv S7 Premium powered by Intel solves all these issues. This little computer weighs less than 2 pounds, has great battery life, and is able to access the internet the same way a laptop would. Your productivity and communication will be unstoppable, but, let’s be honest, it’s also fantastic for watching movies or entertaining your friends with the latest viral videos. [$579, Dynamism]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away one Intel viliv S7 Premium, but you have to work if you want it. Share the worst thing you’ve discovered about through online stalking before a date — and whether you went on the date after finding out that info — in the comments by 3:39 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 12. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

UPDATE! The winner of the Viliv S7 Premium Mobile Tablet is Fizzy for this comment:

“I went on a date with someone I met, yes, on The Frisky. (And no, it wasn’t CheeeeEEEEse, and to be fair to the man in question I’m not going to reveal his identity.) Before going on the date I knew everything about his dating and sex habits from what his kinks were to his opinions on stereotypical male behavior. One might think this would be beneficial. But in fact it was strange in a really predictable sense, and when I realized things weren’t exactly working out it didn’t make sense to me because everything he’d said in comments suggested otherwise. Needless to say I ended up not commenting for sometime and changing my identity.
Frisky ladies, I would avoid dating the gentlemen of this website for those reasons, as attractive as some of them are!”

Thanks for all your online stalking cautionary tales. Keep reading »

UPDATE! The winner of the Leslie Green Necklace is lea322 for this comment:

“One year, when I was in high school, my mom gave me a delicate gold necklace for Valentine’s Day. The pendant is a little heart with a small pearl in the middle. It’s extremely subtle and understated, but I love it. My mom always made Valentine’s Day special with a gift for my sister and I. She always shows us how much she loves us, but with all the added pressure of “relationships” on V-Day, she made sure to do something just a little more special to make sure we knew that with or without a guy, we were loved. That necklace is something I will always love and appreciate.”

Thank you for all your sweet (and not-so sweet) stories. Keep reading »
