Birthday Giveaway #1-Gossip Girl Site Tour in NYC from On Location Tours

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm doing a MONTH of giveaways this month to celebrate my birthday month with my sweet readers. If you are a vendor friend, there is still time to get involved. Just email me at and we'll chat. I figured we would start it with a bang...this giveaway could not be more perfect for a blogger who lives on the Upper East Side!

Calling all Gossip Girls fans...

Would you like to experience a day in the life of Manhattan's Elite on the tour of Gossip Girl Sites?

If the answer is yes, than this giveaway is for you! On Location Tours is offering one very lucky Magnolias, Marriage and Manhattan reader TWO free tickets for their Gossip Girl tour.

You and a friend will live a day in the life of Serena, Blair, Chuck, Dan, Vanessa, and Nate on this three hour guided bus tour that goes to more than 30 locations that were used in filming the hit TV series. Find out behind the scenes information and little know facts about the cast and crew of Gossip Girl from local NYC actors and actresses who are guides on this exciting tour.

Fun, fun! If I lived in the city I would totally enter! I have been to and by the hotel where they fill time and time again, but it would be fun to see everything at once!

Friends was probably my favorite NYC-based show... I probably know every episode!

This tour sounds fun - I realized while visiting the Holiday House that Gossip Girl has filmed there as well!

Preppy In The City said...

Happy Birthday Month! Saw on Twitter your son said Mama, that is so amazing! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

My favorite movie based in NY is "All I Want For Christmas". What I wouldn't give to leave in the brown stone in that movie!

My favorite would have to be a tie between Gossip Girl and Sex and the City... it's hard to pick between them but I think Sex and the City might win out!
