Comments (2)

Our super-exclusive Downton Abbey Super Fan Party in a top-secret San Francisco location on Wednesday, February 25 is drawing closer, and we've still got 60 tickets (for two) to give away in the third of our weekly draws!

Your third Downton Abbey Super Fan Party challenge is:

2. On Saturday, 'follow' the Dowager Countess Lady Violet to a perfectly English tea shop in Campbell

countess-follow-me

 

Where?
Lisa's Tea Treasures, Pruneyard Shopping Center, 1875 S. Bascom Avenue #165, Campbell, CA 95008 (map)

When?
10am-2pm on Saturday, January 24. Find the friendly KQED staff member inside Lisa's Tea Treasures at the gift shop, fill out a quick form and you’re entered into this week’s drawing to win one of 20 tickets (with each ticket giving entry for two people to the Super Fan Party!)
Please note that if you're hoping to stay and enjoy a full Downton-style tea service at Lisa's Tea Treasures, a reservation will almost certainly be needed (call 408.371.7377.) We don't want you to be disappointed!

Why here?
Taking tea (more specifically, being served it) is one of the Dowager Countess' cherished pastimes. For this reason, we had no trouble imagining her ensconced in this very traditional tea shop, sipping her Earl Grey and delivering withering barbs to her companions.

If you are lucky enough to win one of the tickets in our first drawing, you will receive an email by 2pm on Monday, January 26 with the details on the party. Once you’ve confirmed your acceptance of the ticket, we will mail you this special Countess ticket!

If if you're not lucky this time around, stay tuned: you've got two more Saturday draws (in San Mateo and Sausalito) to enter, and next week we'll be announcing our fourth Bay Area location in which to enter the drawing. In the meantime: we'll see you, Downton Super Fans, at Lisa's Tea Treasures on Saturday.

Truly, our Downton Abbey Super Fan Party on February 25 will be the ultimate fête for Downton die-hards. By now you know that tickets can't be bought, only won in one of five ticket drawings (the next one is in Oakland on Saturday, January 17.) But what awaits those 100 lucky people (and their plus-ones) who manage to score a ticket?

Behind scenes hair

Lucky enough to snag a ticket in our draws? This will be you, getting glam for the Party.

Here's what we're allowed to reveal at this point:

  • The super-secret location will have a definite "speakeasy" vibe, boasting an intriguing history and a Prohibition-era bar
  • There will be Downton-inspired creative cocktails
  • Costumes will most definitely be encouraged

There are also covetable Downton-themed prizes on offer at the Super Fan Party, including:

So... how do you get a ticket to the Super Fan Party?

Simple: from January 10, we're holding a draw for 20 tickets each week. You can enter your name each Saturday at a particular location around the Bay Area. The four remaining weekly locations are Oakland (Jan 17), San Jose (Jan 24), San Mateo (Jan 31) and Sausalito (Feb 7), and each will be inspired by a different Downton Abbey character.

Earlier every week, we’ll be revealing the exact location and the time that you can come to enter your name in the drawing for one of 20 tickets -- and each ticket allows two entrants into the party. Make sure to Like KQED on Facebook and follow us on Twitter right now to get the details as soon as they're made public.

Revealed: Oakland location of our second Downton Super Fan Party ticket draw

Comments (1)

Excitement is mounting over our Downton Abbey Super Fan Party on Wednesday, February 25, to be held in a top-secret San Francisco location. It's now time for our second drawing to win one of 100 tickets to this exclusive event!

Your second Downton Abbey Super Fan Party challenge is:

2. On Saturday, 'follow' Lady Edith to a British-style pub in Oakland

Edith-Follow-Me2

 

Where?
The Growlers' Arms, 4214 Park Boulevard, Oakland, CA 94602 (map)

When?
11am-3pm on Saturday, January 17. Find the friendly KQED staff member inside The Growlers' Arms, fill out a form and you’re entered into this week’s drawing to win one of 20 tickets (with each ticket giving entry for two people to the Super Fan Party!)
Please note that the Growlers' Arms will not be open for food/drinks at that time.

Why here?

As an aspiring writer, we know Lady Edith would enjoy Oakland's creativity and verve, and this British-style gastropub tucked away in the Glenview neighborhood of the city offers an authentic taste of the English countryside. Plus, let's be honest: after her trials and tribulations in the show, she deserves a little fun "down the pub."

Edith

If you are lucky enough to win one of the tickets in our first drawing, you will receive an email by 2pm on Monday, January 19 with the details on the party. Once you’ve confirmed your acceptance of the ticket, we will mail you this special Edith ticket!

If if you're not lucky this time around, stay tuned: you've got three more Saturday draws (in San Jose, San Mateo and Sausalito) to enter, and next week we'll be announcing our third Bay Area location in which to enter the drawing. In the meantime: we'll see you, Downton Super Fans, at The Growlers' Arms on Saturday.

Where?
Spike’s Coffee & Teas, 4117 19th Street (at Castro Street,) San Francisco, CA 94114 (map)

Why here?
As Downton's underbutler, Thomas knows a thing or two about tea — plus he'd enjoy the opportunity to relax off-duty in this busy, vibrant part of San Francisco.
