WNW HOLIDAY PARTY GIVEAWAYS
It wouldn't be a proper holiday party without some gifts for all you talented and deserving members. A big thank you to all who donated, including the sponsors who are making tomorrow night possible: Mount Gay Rum, Classpass, VML, Nice Shoes, Sound Lounge, Breather and RIAD.
And thank you to YOU for being a part of the WNW family, being pros at what you do, and making our parties so damn fun. Hope to see you tomorrow!
It seriously pains us that WNW staff cannot be eligible for this unbelievable giveaway: four winners will each get a $500 gift certificate to be used anywhere in the world. Only catch is that you have to spend it all at one time. Somehow we suspect you won't have any trouble doing this.
Our friends at Shinola have offered one winner the generous gift of The Runwell 41mm ($550 value.) Prefer another style? You can swap it out for a watch of your choosing, of the same value. Their watch-making process is steeped in American history and though they have stores worldwide (including their very trendy Tribeca location), they continue to produce from their factory in Detroit.
True story: when the WNW team was in London in June, we stumbled into The Hoxton for deliciously boozy brunch. Now six months later, 600 winners will be treated to a one night stay at their Williamsburg location, set to open next year. Yep, you read that correctly: 600 winners. You can thank them at their opening.
With locations in London and Amsterdam (Paris and of course Brooklyn coming soon), The Hoxton has been labeled the “anti-hotel”. They got rid of things that pissed people off in traditional hotels like expensive mini-bars, water and WiFi and gave them what they wanted at an affordable price. They changed the hotel model and proved that style didn’t need to be sacrificed for value and that is still very much at the heart of what The Hoxton does today.
These are not just any earbuds; without giving away secrets, they use nerdalicious software and 3D printing to sculpt each one-of-a-kind pair to perfectly fit your ears. Normal is offering four winners 50% off Normal earbuds. Get ready to realize what your ears have missing all these years.
With New Years resolutions right around the corner, this giveaway couldn't be more timely. Holiday Party sponsor and WNW Member ClassPass is giving one winner a two-month membership ($250 value). ClassPass membership gives you access to the largest network of fitness studios, letting you create workout routines that work for you, whether thatʼs Bikram and barre or cycling and circuit training.
MOUNT GAY RUM
For those of you who appreciate quality liquor, look no further. Holiday Party sponsor Mount Gay Rum is offering a bottle of Mount Gay 1703, the most exclusive product in the range, ranked one of the Top 10 Rums by Gayot. ($130 value.) Mount Gay is the oldest, most storied, most nuanced rum in the world: "Our unique double pot distillation process came to Barbados with the first merchant ships. For this one, forty four blends were necessary to reach the subtle, perfectly balanced notes of oak, caramel, vanilla, spice, and toast."
Maybe next year we can get a trip to Barbados. In the meantime, we'll raise a glass.
Seeking work-life balance? Three winners may actually achieve it with their one year subscription to headspace, valued at $100 each. Headspace is meditation made simple with 10 minutes a day where you can learn online, when you want, wherever you are. You can learn more about it from the interview we did with Head of Design and WNW Member, Anna Charity.
Party sponsor Breather is offering a $250 in on-demand space credit for your next on-the-go conference call or client meeting. This is a must have for any freelancer who needs to get out of their house or a team that's looking to do an off-site. With over 100 locations throughout New York, San Francisco and Boston, Breather is your "third-space" to work, meet or relax.
This is a service practically tailor-made for WNW members. Two members will win two free drip sessions with up to two people per session. And for those who don't win, you can enter the code "WNW15" for a 15% off the drips. Eligible 12/17 - 12/31.
The Hangover Club provides on demand IV nutrient therapy in the comfort and convenience of your home, office or hotel. They send a board certified and licensed nurse to you, equipped with IV Hydration, vitamins and prescription strength medications. Although curing hangovers is their specialty, their expert integrative physicians have formulated Vitamin IV drips for multiple purposes including for health, wellness and recovery needs. Whether you need to replenish depleted nutrients from a hard training, trying to prevent a cold, or trying to recover from one, their customizable drips are a great way to blast your body back into balance.

CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY
When WNW Member (and Drinking Not Drinking host) Amy Schwartz went full-time at Cards Against Humanity, we were thrilled. Mostly because we figured we'd be getting some fun gifts from her. Two winners will receive complete sets of Cards Against Humanity, including the main game, the Bigger, Blacker Box, the expansions, and special editions of cards that are not for sale online! Amy may or may not have included some surprise boxes of actual bullshit as well.
