Yes, it is awards season already, and this year I’m teaming up with Hilton Honors to create a seriously memorable GRAMMYs weekend.
If any hotel company knows how to celebrate the music industry, it’s Hilton, which has a long history of partnering with The Recording Academy. The very first annual GRAMMY Awards dinner in 1959 was held inside the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, and included Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, among other luminaries. This year, the event is no less exclusive (but, interestingly, Hilton members can bid on a pair of tickets to the GRAMMYs by visiting the Honors auction). But we’ve got our own parties to host…
To make this year’s GRAMMY Awards — the 59th annual — even more special, TPG and Hilton Honors are hosting a full weekend of activities. Here’s what’s planned:
- Thursday, February 9 — TPG + Hilton Honors host a pre-GRAMMY party at the Beverly Hilton, complete with a performance by Lukas Graham
- Sunday, February 12 — One lucky winner will win two tickets to attend the GRAMMY Awards
The best news of all: You can enter to win tickets to either of the events — or both. We’re inviting 100 TPG readers to come to the premier pre-GRAMMY party. There will be plenty of drinks and hors d’oeuvres to go around — oh, and a performance from GRAMMY-nominated artist Lukas Graham.
For a shot at being added to the guest list for the pre-GRAMMY party, tweet this sentence: “I wanna hear 7 Years @ the @thepointsguy + @hiltonhonors party w/ @lukasgraham! http://bit.ly/tpghilt #TPGxHiltonGRAMMYsweepstakes” Include all of those elements and you’ll automatically be entered to win.
But wait, there’s more! We’re also giving away one set of two tickets to the big event itself (yes, the GRAMMY Awards) on Sunday, February 12. The winner will get two tickets, round-trip airfare for two and a two-night stay at the Hilton Checkers Los Angeles — definitely a weekend to remember. To enter to win, tune in to my Instagram account for five days, beginning today, Tuesday, January 31 and ending February 4. I’ll be posting about the five Record of the Year nominees — “Hello” by Adele, “Formation” by Beyoncé, “7 Year” by Lukas Graham, “Work” by Rihanna and “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots — on each of the five days. And the posts will include details on how you can enter for that day.
Make sure you’re following TPG on Instagram (@thepointsguy) and get your themed photos ready! You must be 21 or older to be eligible, and official sweepstakes rules can be found here. Good luck, and I hope to see you in LA for GRAMMYs weekend.
