Snagajob contest to honor hourly workers during Super Bowl

Henrico-based hourly employment network Snagajob wants to recognize the hourly workers who make your Super Bowl party possible.

The company announced a Twitter contest encouraging people to recognize hourly workers by Tweeting @Snagajob to describe why the workers deserve recognition, using the hashtag #BigGameTips. Participants have the chance to win as much as $200 to cover their food and beverage bills and as much as $100 to use on tips.

“Fans look forward to The Big Game all year, so it’s easy to forget that without hourly workers, some of the biggest game day traditions wouldn’t be possible,” said Jason Hamilton, vice president of marketing for Snagajob. “Servers, delivery drivers, chefs and bartenders have a busy night ahead of them on Sunday, and we want to make sure their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.”

Tweets must be received on Sunday, Feb. 3 between noon and 11 p.m.

Snagajob officials will pick three contest winners based on the Tweet’s content, number of re-Tweets and the creativity of any included photos.

Winners will be notified on Feb. 4, 2013. For details or to view the full contest rules, visit http://www.snagajob.com/BigGameTips

CMoR reopens at new Short Pump site

The Children’s Museum of Richmond last week opened its new Short Pump location at Short Pump Town Center, to the delight of children who attended a sneak preview of the location July 10. The new facility, located under the forthcoming LL Bean store (formerly the food court) is 8,500 square feet in size – much larger than CMoR’s former Short Pump location at West Broad Village, which opened in 2010. The new space includes The CarMax Foundation Service Station, the Silver Diner, a grocery store, a performance stage and an art studio, as well as a giant Light Bright Wall. > Read more.

Minion mania

Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot

In Minions, those jibberjabbering little corncob things from Despicable Me have finally earned their own feature film. Specifically, three of them: Kevin (tall), Stuart (plays the ukulele) and Bob (loves his teddy bear), all voiced by co-director Pierre Coffin.

After tracing the evolution of Minionkind – we don’t know what they are, but we know they’re hardwired to serve the baddest villain around – our three Minion heroes set off upon a quest to save their species and find the newest, nastiest villain overlord. > Read more.
