Ok, maybe that’s a stretch, but the tickets are seriously discounted. The Hillary Clinton Speech scheduled for Monday at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield has been advertised around town for weeks, but it may not have drawn the interest that organizers had hoped for.
The bargain website LivingSocial is now offering a 66% discount off the original $175 price tag. For a mere $59.99 (ok, fine, we added the .99) you can watch Clinton deliver a “keynote address.” This coming from the so-called front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Who wants the Dollar Store version of a presidential candidate?
It’s not exactly clear what event this “keynote address” is affiliated with, but the Clinton Global Initiative will be having meetings in Colorado in late June (there will be more on that later). Most importantly, do we get cheesecake with mixed berry garnish (plus the whipped cream and sprig of mint on the side – you know what we’re talking about) for the $59.99? #askingforafriend
So far, the LivingSocial deal has sold 286 tickets. With a seating capacity of 6,500 at the 1STBANK Center, Hillary could be looking out at a pretty empty venue. Of course, we don’t know how many tickets have been sold through other channels, but we’re guessing that this was not farmed out to LivingSocial at 66% off because of high existing demand.
Don’t worry PeakNation™, today is the last opportunity for all of you to get in on this fantastic deal. So, um, hurry over to Living Social. Or, just join us in giggling that Hillary Clinton can’t seem to draw a crowd in anticipation of a presidential run.
