He always looks so cool.
The '20s-themed Great Gatsby Gala will be Aug. 23, raising money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and you can win tickets for two by finding Gatsby a little early.
He, Daisy and Nick (the main characters in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel to which this yearly fundraiser alludes) will be dining in a Charlotte Restaurant Week restaurant July 24, sometime between 7 and 8:30 p.m. Hints will be posted on the Great Gatsby Gala's Facebook page, which you must Like to enter this contest. Figure out where he'll be, find him, snap a photo of yourself at his table and post to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #IFoundGatsby and you'll get a gift. One person will win two Gala tickets. The Gala will be at the Wells Fargo Atrium, and has food from area restaurants, an open bar for beer and wine, a silent auction, Big Band dancing and a best-dressed contest. Info and ticket sales: www.gatsbygala.org.
P.S.: A first clue for you: The city seen from near Discovery Place and Spirit Square is always the city seen for the first time.
P.P.S.: No, I don't know the answer.
