Almost Famous is one of my top favorite films! I fell in love right when I saw it. Plus I am 100% certain that I was born in the wrong decade and so winning this, seeing the real life Pennie Lane in the flesh, and being surrounded by fellow fanatics would be the icing on top of the cake. Thanks for this awesome giveaway opportunity! I'm keeping my fingers crossed (:

OH MY GOSH!! I would love to go to this! Almost Famous is my all-time favorite movie...there was even a time when I carried it around in my purse. I dressed up as Penny Lane for Halloween last year and will probably do it again this year! What an awesome event!
