Thank you to all who entered our #geekviewpreview contest this weekend.  I’m now proud to announce the winners chosen to get passes for tomorrow night’s #geekviewpreview of the second-to-last Harry Potter- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1.

To those winners, please remember that seating #geekviewpreview is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and IS NOT GUARANTEED.  The earlier you get there, the better your chances of getting in.

  • Location: AMC Aventura
  • Showtime: 7:00pm
  • Meet-up Time: 4:00pm

The first winner is Jesse Antonio Hernandez, otherwise known as @highguyz on Twitter.  Jesse has been to every single #geekviewpreview so far, and we’re thrilled to have him join us.

I mean its Harry frickin Potter and the Deathly Hallows :-X #geekviewpreview @sflsocialgeeks >>>

I met one half of our second winners at our #MegaMind #geekviewpreview.  That’s right- congrats Deborah Dee Dee Zinn (@dee_deez) & @jarret23.

“Yes, please!!! 🙂 @sflsocialgeeks RT @jarret23: Hook up @dee_deez and I for Harry Potter! #geekviewpreview 1:36pm 11/11/2010 via Twitter for BlackBerry®

The next pair of tickets go to the duo who run the BIG, or Broward Intellectual Game Night, and are Event Organizers for the South Florida Social Geeks.  Let’s give a big hand for Alejandro Loayza (@alejandroamet) & Carla Young (@wherescarla).

To-do this weekend: watch all Harry Potter movies b4 the #geekviewpreview of HP7 with the @sflsocialgeeks.

This next winner caught my attention with their most recent tweet, getting their entry in just under the wire.  @SIK3333, that’s right, you won the next pair of tickets, but you better be wearing this tomorrow.

@sfsocialgeeks Did you know I bought Hufflepuff robes yesterday for the premier? Can’t wait to see DH #geekviewpreview

I’ve kind of purposefully dragged this announcement on before getting to this person because they seem to be the most anxious out of all of our entries.  They definitely sent the most tweets and completely carpet bombed us.  Yes, that’s right.  I’m talking about you Hilary Klein (aka @hrk85).  You and @sethgrossmayer have won yourselves tickets to the #geekviewpreview tomorrow.  But, you better bring enough Butterbeer for all of us.

Pretty please w/butterbeer on top? @sethgrossmayer &I want to see Deathly Hallows pt 1#geekviewpreview

The sixth, and final, pair of tickets have been won by a guy who’s first #geekviewpreview turned out to be a huge dud; so hopefully this will make up for #skyline.  Congrats to @kevincramsay.

@sflsocialgeeks I’m pretty sure this is a winning entry for the #geekviewpreview of the new Harry Potter. More Info –

Sorry to those of you who didn’t win, but be sure to follow our Twitter feed for more #geekviewpreview showings.

Once again, congratulations to you all and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night.
