> Dear Listees:
> Greetings all. Not sure if this is an ad or a service announcement? : )
> Well, it is warm and sunny in Tucson today, and I hear from one of my
> spies downtown that the big parking lots are being cleared out in
> preparation for the tents to go up.
> This will be my 13th consecutive gem show and, in all that time, I've
> always felt there was something missing -- an original, up-to-date
> website dedicated exclusively to the Tucson shows. Yes, there are lots of
> websites with dates and listings and show reviews, and so on, but I
> wanted more.
> So, we built one for you.
> The new site was designed, written, researched and photographed entirely
> by gem show professionals who live and work here in Tucson. As such, we
> offer all kinds of local insider information that "Colored Stone" and the
> like just don't have. The new site contains, among other things:
> - A hip restaurant and dining guide with a multitude of restaurant and
> cafe tips; most recommended venues are located very close to the shows
> - Tucson bar, music and nightlife guide
> - A brilliant essay on how to make the most of the show by Tucson native
> and show professional Lisa Marie of Sirocco Design
> - Where to stay: A guide to some of my favorite Tucson hotels, many of
> which often still have rooms at or near showtime
> - The best day trips out of Tucson, with photos and contact info
> - A gallery of our favorite show photos from the past 12 years
> - Pages on the weather, a brief history of Tucson, and general visitor's
> info including road closures
> - And, of course, a complete listing of every one of the 45+ shows, with
> locations, dates, contact info. As there are a couple of new,
> independent, local shows opening this year, we actually have THE most
> complete show listing of any of the guides
> We will also be adding a Special Events page with details about Michael's
> auction, the Birthday Bash, etc.
> This website is intended as a service to the community. I hope you enjoy
> it and find it useful:
> www.tucsongemandmineralshows.net
> To mark the launch of the new site, I am making a one-time special offer
> to Meteorite List members. I am offering a very limited number of FREE
> featured vendor listings to list members who will be exhibitors at the
> '09 gem show, with a photo, details about your showroom and business, and
> a link to your website. If you would like your site to be considered,
> please email me OFF-LIST for details.
> Here are the current featured listings:
> http://tucsongemandmineralshows.net/tucson-show-vendors.htm
> In addition,we will consider link exchanges with any List member sites
> (non Tucson vendors) from our links page. I fully expect
> www.tucsongemandmineralshows.net to become one of the top online gem show
> resources, so this is a great PR opportunity for your site or business.
> Please contact me off- List for details.
> Finally, the Tenth Annual Meteor Mayhem Birthday Bash and Harvey Awards
> will take place on Friday, February 6 at a very chic, new downtown Tucson
> venue. I will post details separately.
> Looking forward to seeing many of you here, very soon! Brings shorts and
> sunglasses : )
