American Airlines Launches Mobile Million Sweepstakes for Android

American Airlines is launching the Mobile Million Sweepstakes for Android to celebrate its recently launched Android application (this follows American's 2010 Mobile Million Sweepstakes for iPhone). The sweepstakes rewards one grand-prize winner with one million American Airlines AAdvantage® miles. In addition, American will give one Barnes & Noble NOOK Color™ every day for 30 days to 30 lucky winners – all for simply downloading the free app.

To enter the sweepstakes, which runs through April 28, 2011, customers simply install and launch the app on their Android devices, watch the video and register through the pop-up that appears. Customers who currently have the American Airlines app on their Android devices can still enter the sweepstakes by updating the app, and non-Android users may enter the sweepstakes via an alternate online entry form. Additional entries can be made by sharing the sweepstakes with a friend via email.

"Mobile technology is of growing importance to our customers, and can improve a customer's travel experience by putting control of the flow of information right in the customer's hands," said Rick Elieson, Managing Director – American Airlines Interactive Marketing. "We know our customers rely heavily on their mobile devices when they travel, and beyond checking in or getting gate information, it is increasingly the way in which customers connect with American Airlines. The Mobile Million Sweepstakes is a great way to highlight the capabilities of our newest mobile app while giving customers the opportunity to win some terrific prizes."

A promotional video that showcases benefits of the Android app will be featured inflight the entire month of April. To watch the video and learn about the Mobile Million Sweepstakes for Android, including terms and conditions, please visit www.aa.com/androidpromo.

Please note:  only United States residents are eligible to enter the Mobile Million Sweepstakes, and some features within American's Android app are applicable only within the U.S.

First Taste of Bar Harbor Festival

The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce is launching the first Taste of Bar Harbor Festival with events May 20-22, 2011, as a way to showcase local and diverse cuisine as well as encouraging people to eat local. Food lovers and residents will have a chance to sample local food and drink at the festival Saturday May 21st 11a-4p in the Newport Drive parking area and participate in other festival events Friday evening and Sunday morning.

Festival highlights include a wine tasting at House Wine Friday evening and a Chef’s table at several restaurants. Cooking classes, a comical servers’ race, and an ice carving demonstration by Chef Lou from the Bar Harbor Inn’s Reading Room contribute to the activities held on Saturday. During the race, waiters and waitresses will negotiate trays of wine glasses (filled with water) through an obstacle course. On Saturday, the public can feast on the culinary treats found in the region under a tent off Newport Drive. Bar Harbor’s retailers will feature their taste of Bar Harbor on the streets of downtown while storefronts will display a taste of their business throughout the day. At dinner time, participating restaurants will offer food and wine pairings to further enhance the culinary experience. Finally, the weekend winds down with a jazz brunch Sunday morning.

Wine and beer tastings, cooking demonstrations, and cooking classes will round out the weekend for locals and visitors. “We are very excited about the Taste of Bar Harbor. It is a great way to promote some of the local fare and flavors of Bar Harbor,” said Chris Fogg, Executive Director of the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

Taste of Bar Harbor is a community oriented event that celebrates the creative and flavorful cuisine experience one can have when visiting Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor has long been a place of inspiration, relaxation, and outdoor activities. To plan your trip, visit:
