    NEON VISIT
    Take a trip to one of New York's fantastic neon signs with the President of Project Neon (that's me!) We'll work out a visit to one of the city's bars, restaurants, or shops to hang out in the glow of Neonopolis. We'll take a stroll past any other good neon signs in the vicinity, and I'll personally hand over your Project Neon membership card.

    SPONSOR AN APP ENTRY: Tell the world which of New York's neon signs is your favorite by including a line of text at the bottom of that sign's entry in the Project Neon App. One hundred characters or less for you to decide, though I reserve the right to edit out any profanity — we have to keep it clean to get the app approved! So no swearing and no hyperlinks, but you're otherwise free to express your love for the sign of your choice as you see fit. Signs will be reserved on a first-pledged, first-choice basis, so don't delay! (And of course you'll receive a Project Neon membership card, too!)

    PHOTO TOUR: I'll take a group of up to 10 people on a 3-hour neon photo walk around New York City. We'll visit as many neon signs as we can, and I'll reveal my top-secret neon photography tips so you can take your own great neon photos. Everyone on the tour will receive their own Project Neon membership card and 4x6 photo print. Transportation to and around NYC is not included (though we'll mostly be walking, with a subway ride or two), and we can either schedule the tour further into the fall to take advantage of earlier sunsets or sooner in the summer and we'll visit late-night neon. If you have any questions let me know, then round up 9 of your favorite friends and sign up!
