With as full as flights are these days, if your United transatlantic flight out of Newark cancels I could easily see the airline not being able to get you out for three days. Then you’d be stuck spending three days in Newark. I’d say you could pitch the story to the airline’s magazine, but somebody already did that.
For as long as I can remember United’s Hemispheres inflight magazine has included a feature “Three Perfect Days” Well, now you can win three perfect days in… Newark.
The lucky winner will receive two round-trip tickets from United Airlines and a 4-day/3-night stay at the TRYP by Wyndham Newark Downtown Hotel.
They will enjoy dining at places such as Marcus B&P, the celebrated restaurant of celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson; and, Catas, a popular Spanish fare restaurant located in the heart of the city’s Ironbound neighborhood.
The winners will also have the chance to sample delicious cocktails at Newark’s authentic All Points West Distillery and enjoy lively entertainment at LaRouge.
The winners will also receive complimentary tickets to visit the GRAMMY Museum Experience at Prudential Center, a concert performance at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) and the Newark Museum.
They say history repeats itself first as tragedy and then as farce, however I think this recreation of Three Perfect Days is… serious… although I don’t know anyone who would describe three nights at the TRYP by Wyndham Newark Downtown as perfect. Although I must say my only experience with Marcus Samuelsson is the coach buy on board on American Airlines earlier in the decade and the Samuelsson nuts were good.

Just bear in mind that the winner won’t just have to go to Newark, they’ll have to pay taxes on the fair market value of this (better bone up on how to dispute the reported value of a prize).
Do you think the winner could trade this in for three perfect days in the Newark Polaris lounge?
