Welcome back to the new New York Magazine Competition. The best of last week’s submissions, including the winner, appear below this week’s call for entries. It’s easy to play: On Monday mornings, we’ll lay out a challenge and offer a few sample responses. Give it your best shot in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag we’ve provided, and on Friday the editors will select three winners. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year’s subscription to New York Magazine in print or a two-year subscription for the iPad edition (winner’s choice). Full rules are here.
COMPETITION NO. 3: “My Band Is Playing on Thanksgiving.” Please submit the name of a band you might hear this Thursday night. For example:
Vampire Long Weekend
Ben Folds Pie
Sly and the Entire Family Stone
They Might Be Gravy
Enter in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag #thanksgivingbands.
