naginOkay now gentle (and not so gentle) readers, it’s time for a HumidCity contest. Here’s how it works:

Submit your best Ray Nagin joke by leaving it in the comments of this post. Monday morning we will stop taking entries and I will confer with the other members of the team. We will then pick our favorite as the winner. (Yes, this is a purely subjective process).  Anyone who does not write for HumidCity is eligible to enter.

The winner will receive a free LiveNation Club Passport here are the details on what it is and what shows it will get you into:

The Club Passports are available for $49.99 at The all-in, no fee Club Passport lets concert fans see a number of shows at The House of Blues and the House of Blues Parish for the rest of the year, subject to availability.  Subject to availability basically means that as long as the show is not sold out, Club Passport holders can get in. Every Monday, Passport holders will be notified with a list of those participating shows and the process to reserve their tickets. Then, all the fans have to do is bring their Passport and ID to the box office.
