    Win me those tix!

    • Tim December 29, 2014 at 9:47 am #

      Turned 60 this year, and 15 years with my lady, this would be a great way to celebrate the year’s events. BTW, we still rock!

  2. Claire December 10, 2014 at 10:45 pm #

    We just moved to PDX a few weeks ago, we have a newborn and a two year old and we could really use a night off.

  3. Ann S December 11, 2014 at 6:55 am #

    This has been an amazing year that deserves a a party to send it out in style and set the tone for next year. I can’t imagine a better way to do both than at the Governors Ball.

    • Jessica December 20, 2014 at 1:47 pm #

      I am getting over a serious illness and this would mean a lot to me!

  4. Danuta December 11, 2014 at 2:21 pm #

  7. RC December 11, 2014 at 4:39 pm #

    Pat Lamb puts on a rockin’ show.

  8. Ashley December 11, 2014 at 5:06 pm #

  9. Tom P December 11, 2014 at 5:18 pm #

    This will be good

  10. Chris December 11, 2014 at 7:32 pm #

    Never been to a NYE celebration like this – would be awesome.

  11. Benno December 11, 2014 at 7:49 pm #

    This music is what I’m talking’ about–and dinner too? We would definitely rise to this occasion.

  12. Teresa December 11, 2014 at 8:34 pm #

    Sounds like a great event!

  13. Lisa December 11, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    Food & music+ grownups only = lets do it!

  14. Melissa Kaylene December 11, 2014 at 11:32 pm #

    Eeek!! I know several people who will be going to this event and I’ve been wanting to attend SO bad! I’ve never been out on New Year’s Eve before and I’d absolutely love to make this year different! I LOVE the venue and I know it will be amazing!! :)

  15. Barbara December 11, 2014 at 11:50 pm #

  17. rhianna December 12, 2014 at 7:39 am #

  18. James December 12, 2014 at 10:37 am #

    I’m a classy gentleman who likes to get down and funky, aren’t I?
    so this is the perfect opportunity to combine these facets of my personality in to one bangin’ NYE party, isn’t it?

  19. Taylor Miller December 12, 2014 at 10:54 am #

    I have never been out on new years eve before. This would be an awesome experience!

  20. Angie December 12, 2014 at 11:15 am #

    We have a toddler and haven’t been out on new years for a couple of years. WE WOULD LOVE TO GO!

  21. Courtney December 12, 2014 at 12:00 pm #

    This sounds like so much fun!

  22. Kaitlin December 12, 2014 at 12:26 pm #

    What a blessing to win!!!! My girlfriend and I both are in complicated relationship situations and just can’t wait to have a classy time out. We’ll be dressed like 007’s ladies. Pick me, pick me!

  23. Joe December 12, 2014 at 12:35 pm #

    My girlfriend and I decided to take a road trip (from SF) to spend New Years in Portland. Neither of us has ever been so we’re excited to check it out. This would be icing on the cake for sure!

  24. Michelle December 12, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    bring in the new year!

  25. Azizi December 12, 2014 at 9:19 pm #

    Dressing up and listening to Funk music, what could be better?

  26. Dan Vigil December 13, 2014 at 1:22 am #

    Sounds like fun! Would love to go as a couple, haven’t celebrated in over 6years

  27. Matt December 13, 2014 at 8:46 am #

    Id like to win these tickets as I am currently living in Boise trying to relocate back to PDX and I will be there for new years eve and It would really make a special date night for me and my special someone that I have been seeing. Help me seal the deal!

  28. Steve December 13, 2014 at 10:01 am #

    I can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year than having a Gourmet dinner and dancing to Patrick Lamb with my wife.

  29. Andrea Stafford December 13, 2014 at 10:17 am #

    I can’t remember the last time I went out for New Years! I was pregnant for the last two out of three!
    MAMA needs a night out..Whoop Whoop.

  30. Jessica December 13, 2014 at 11:06 am #

    Sounds like the opposite of what I’ve done the past few years for new years and would be a great change of pace. Would like to get out and celebrate accordingly instead of staying in and being a dud!! Thanks

  31. Celeste December 13, 2014 at 11:13 pm #

    It would be nice to take the bf out to bring in the new year. We both made huge changes this year with new careers and celebrating these changes in a big way sounds like a plan. Plus we both need an actual date night.

  32. Kathy Peoples December 13, 2014 at 11:52 pm #

    This has been a particularly hard year for us and it would be good to say get lost to 2014 and to bring in 2015 in awesomeness with hopes of a great new year! Prospero Nuevo Ano!

  33. anna December 14, 2014 at 9:49 am #

    My husband and I could SURE use a date night after having our 4 month old. We have her grandparents lined up to babysit her NYE and have been doing a lot of bottle training so it’s successful. It’s really hard to get her to drink my breastmilk from the bottle but we’re practicing all for NYE so we can finally have some fun. We don’t even know what we’re doing but we hope to be out having fun. Winning these tix would be great! Thanks!

  34. Mary December 14, 2014 at 11:10 am #

    I would absolutely love to go to this fantastic event!

  35. Chelsea December 14, 2014 at 5:10 pm #

    I could really use a vacation!

  36. Chelsea December 14, 2014 at 5:12 pm #

    I could use a vacation!!!

  37. Noah December 14, 2014 at 7:30 pm #

    Oh my girlfriend and I have been needing a fabulous celebration. After 7 years of grad school we would be so grateful for an awe inspiring New Year’s celebration. To spend a night with Lambert and Soul Vaccination would be the perfect way to kick off 2015. Thank you!

  38. Emily A December 15, 2014 at 9:02 am #

    2014 was a rough go for me. From family passing away to the end of a long term relationship, it didn’t seem to quit. I am freaking ready to give 2014 da boot and start a new year fresh! 2015 is my year! I just know it! Bringing in the new year with a bang would be the perfect start to my freah new year! Let’s do this 2015. Its on :)

  39. jill truskolaski December 15, 2014 at 3:19 pm #

  48. Laurel H December 16, 2014 at 3:27 pm #

    To go to the NYE Governors Ball this year,

    Patrick Lamb & Soul Vaccination will be icing on the cake,
    And bringing my hunny is who I would take!

    We have spent the last two new year’s at home! High time to mix it up and get fancy!

  52. Tati December 16, 2014 at 9:04 pm #

    Winning these tickets would most definitely solve the problem of deciding what to do on December 31st!

  53. Tracey woodford December 16, 2014 at 9:09 pm #

    Sounds delightful and hope to go.

  54. Mark Cull December 16, 2014 at 9:38 pm #

    My new fiance and I are looking to try something new. Portland is just a few hours away and this would really spice up our New Years plans.

  55. Kathy L. Rankin December 16, 2014 at 9:58 pm #

    It would be good for the “soul.” I need a good vaccination, and
    I like to get horney.

  56. Kathy L. Rankin December 16, 2014 at 9:59 pm #

    There is only one Gold standard in Portland for where to be on New Years 2014.
    “An exclusive evening of dinner, dancing and celebration” says it all:
    the MAYORS BALL!

    Where else?

  58. Jeff Lanford December 16, 2014 at 10:17 pm #

    Looking for some Funk & Soul to ring in the New Year. Soul Vaccination can blow the horns and will do the dancing.

  59. Jefferson December 16, 2014 at 10:18 pm #

  61. Heidi Sumrill December 16, 2014 at 10:38 pm #

    Soul Vaccination New Year’s Eve at the Blue Monk 2012 was Hot! Small crowded little dance floor. I’m Dreaming of a Grand New Year at the Governor’s Ball.

  62. Ginger December 17, 2014 at 4:06 am #

    What a great way to ring in the new year GREAT Bands to dance to. I’d like to win this for too many reasons but a few are I’ve never gone out to a big venue on new years eve and if I don’t win these tickets I sill can say I’ve never … same as above. :( Either way Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!!!!!

  63. Justina December 17, 2014 at 5:17 am #

    I graduate nursing school the 19th of December, this would be the best way to celebrate! Great music, delicious food, and a good crowd what more could a girl ask for?

  64. Rick Campos December 17, 2014 at 10:12 am #

    The love of my life and I are coming out to Portland from Souther California. We would love to attend the event to bring in the new years with a bang. We haven’t attended any New Years eve party in the past and celebrating the new years in a different city and doing something we haven’t done before would be amazing! Also, she has this beautiful dress that I want her to flaunt!

  65. Justin M December 17, 2014 at 3:18 pm #

    I’m flying in from Austin to visit my grand slam girlfriend who recently started a job in Portland. It’s my first time visiting y’alls city and I want to have an unforgettable evening with my girlfriend who is having to miss Christmas with her family in order to nurse Portland’s ill back to health :)

    This would be an amazing way to bring in the new year and a great introduction to Portland.

    My wife deserves this. She is a hard working Nurse who has taken care of everyone including family for a long, long, long time. I would be honored to be in her company and dance to Patrick Lamb.

  71. Heather Hanson December 18, 2014 at 12:31 pm #

  80. Megan December 18, 2014 at 8:17 pm #

    Oh my goodness this looks like so much fun! My friend and I have been looking for something fun to do on New Years Eve these past couple years, and always just end up sitting at home eating junk food and watching the ball drop on tv. We would love to get out of the house this year! :D

  81. MONICA DAUCOURT December 18, 2014 at 9:07 pm #

    Until this moment, I never understood how hard it was to lose something you never had.! PLEASE PICK ME, i PROMISE TO BE INTERESTED AND AT THE SAME TIME CAPTIVATING!

  82. Penny Ardissone December 18, 2014 at 9:11 pm #

    Patrick Lamb is awesome and we love to dance – it would be a perfect New Year’s Eve!

  83. Lisa December 19, 2014 at 7:18 am #

    I rarely go out for New Year’s and this would be a real treat; especially since it includes dinner! Feed me!

  84. Jolie December 19, 2014 at 10:04 am #

    My mom has had a hard year, and I’d like to see her get dressed up, and have a nice night out with my step dad on New Year’s Eve. The Governer’s Ball would be the perfect evening for them both!

  85. ToniaNoelle December 19, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

    Vaccinate me, pleeeeze, with Soul!

  86. Chris December 19, 2014 at 5:34 pm #

    If I win my husband will have to get dressed up and have a classy time out with me! Haven’t been dancing since…well high school. We only danced to one song during our wedding! I need to kick up my heels!

  92. Laura December 20, 2014 at 11:49 pm #

    Music, dinner and dancing just what the doctor ordered

  97. Erika December 21, 2014 at 11:35 am #

    My fiance, who rarely has New Year’s off, actually got some time this year! It would be so much fun to have a special night out with my hard-working man. We are planning a wedding this summer (Thank you Kassab Jewelers – one of the Ball’s sponsors – for a beautiful ring!), so it’d be really nice to save a little money with free tickets and to celebrate, in style, the coming of 2015, one of the biggest years of our lives!

  98. Christina December 21, 2014 at 3:26 pm #

    I would love to have plans!

  99. Selina December 21, 2014 at 4:18 pm #

    I would love to win a gourmet dinner on NYE, can I be the lucky girl who surprises her beau this year?

  103. Laura December 21, 2014 at 8:24 pm #

    I would love to win this and surprise my man with a gourmet dinner for two on NYE!

  104. Jenn December 22, 2014 at 3:33 am #

    The last time I went to the Governors Ball was 1991. I think it’s time to revisit that NYE, yeah baby!

  105. Jen December 22, 2014 at 3:36 am #

    This would be a fabulous way to ring in the New Year! And a big surprise for my honey, as we usually can’t decide what to do. :)

  106. Jennifer December 22, 2014 at 3:40 am #

    I know you want to give me this pair of tickets to take the guesswork out of what to do for NYE…..I wish I was better versed in subliminal coercion…..

  107. Jenny December 22, 2014 at 3:42 am #

    This sounds like an amazing fun filled night and would love the opportunity to go!

  108. Tenzing December 24, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    Just moved to Portland and have had a rough start! I got a sparkly dress and it would be fun for me and my bf to win the tix and celebrate in style!

  109. Jayne Fletcher December 24, 2014 at 9:03 pm #

    I would love to have an adult evening out. Being a single mom I dont get out much, sadly , and its beginning to take its toll. MOMMY NEEDS A NIGHT OUT. I need to be reminded I am still a lady, who wants to go to the Governor’s Ball, and dance like a princess

  112. Debbye December 26, 2014 at 6:11 am #

    This sounds like an extreme night of fun.

  113. Cyndy December 27, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

    this sounds like a beautiful night out. I would love to win tickets for my husband and I. We are parents to 4 children and due to one of them being severely disabled I stay home and provide 24 hour medical care for her. My husband in turn makes all the cash and works usually 7 days a week to do so. I would love to be able to surprise him with a spectacular night out that wont make him have to work harder. Good luck to everyone else, this is a such a cool opportunity that I wish more places would do. There are just so many people out there that cant ever afford to have a night out like this but deserve it.

  114. Ann December 29, 2014 at 10:50 am #

    2014 was a bit of a rough year (divorce, move, etc.) and what better way to end it then to celebrate a new beginning with 2015 than at the Governor’s Ball. Plus talk about motivation to get all dressed up instead of “relaxing” at home… Thanks for the giveaway offer!

  115. Allison Bailey December 29, 2014 at 7:12 pm #

    Sounds like the perfect way to ring in the new year!

  116. Allison Bailey December 29, 2014 at 7:23 pm #

    Sounds like perfection!

  117. Laila December 30, 2014 at 1:09 pm #

    I’m driving down to pdx from seattle tomrrow and would love to attend this!

  118. Ken Davis December 31, 2014 at 3:16 am #

    Ill say “ELLLLOOOOOO GOVNA” to everyone I see! Then inevitably getting beat up
    at some point to entertain the masses. Not for saying Elllooo Govna but for wearing some sick new white pants after labor day.

    let me win!

  120. Susan Miles October 23, 2015 at 8:36 pm #

    I’ve never been to a New Year’s Eve ball and my boyfriend hasn’t either. We would like to attend our first one together and in the greatest city: Portland!
