Late last week, with Foobooz editor Art Etchells sheepishly in tow, Philly Mag’s food editor Jason Sheehan came to me with a half-serious request:
“Can you get Art and me suits to wear to Whiskey Fest?”
This is a man who will gladly fork over any amount of money for a good glass of whiskey or a meal by INSERT FAMOUS CHEF NAME HERE. [Editor's note: That's not a typo. I just really don't know the names of any famous chefs. I am that out of the food loop.] But when it comes to investing any sort of money into his wardrobe, he’s out. Which is how I knew we were in trouble. He didn’t want to buy a suit. He somehow wanted me to find him a suit. Probably for free. And even if he was half-joking in his request, there was an underlying note of desperation there: Please help us with our outfits.
Help is on the way!

Time is running short. The date is drawing nigh. The Philadelphia magazine Whiskey Festival is right around the corner but, because we love you, we’re still trying to give away a free pair of VIP tickets for the event happening on Thursday, October 25.
What do you have to do? Almost nothing. Just go the the Philadelphia Whiskey Festival page, look for the button marked “sweepstakes” and follow the direction. Do what you’re told and you’ll be entered into the drawing for the free tickets. Easy as pie.
So what are you waiting for? The contest ends next Wednesday and you’re not going to improve your chances any by waiting until the very end.
