A Fantastic Start To Gowalla 4.0

September 22, 2011 Leave a comment

The first publicly available Gowalla 4.0 Special Event Postcard and Guide is one created for the 2011 Fantastic Fest held in Austin, Texas.

It is supported by a custom stamp to mark this momentous event and location.

“Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and just plain fantastic movies from all around the world.  In years past we have presented the world premieres of THERE WILL BE BLOOD, APOCALYPTO, CITY OF EMBER, ZOMBIELAND, and GENTLEMEN BRONCOS, while our guest roster has included such talent as Mel Gibson, Bill Murray, Dolph Lundgren, Jemaine Clement, Paul Rudd, Bill Pullman, Paul Thomas Anderson, Kevin Smith, Jon Favreau, George Romero, Darren Aronofsky and Mike Judge. We also feature world, national and regional premieres of new, up-and-coming genre films.”

You can also pick up the special stamps for the South Lamar location of the Alamo Drafthouse as well as the featured stamp for The Highball.

Whether you are cheesed-off or chuffed to bits about it, The Royal Wedding will be taking place, and you can do abso-bloody-lutely nothing to stop it.

So if you’re in “The Big Smoke” during the festivities embrace it and pick up this special “The Royal Wedding” stamp while visiting “Westminster Abbey“.

There are many featured locations around London, so go out and see what the city has to offer.

So what do you do if you aren’t anywhere near London?  Check in at any location where you are watching the event and mention “Royal Wedding” to have this festively designed pin added to your virtual passport.

Join us in the shadow of the Washington Monument. And bring your indoor voice. Or don’t. If you’d rather stay home, go to work, or drive your kids to soccer practice… Actually, please come anyway. Ask the sitter if she can stay a few extra hours, just this once. We’ll make it worth your while.
