Yep, apparently this is now a thing. You can enter a contest to have the chance to meet John Mayer.  I'm not sure I would do this.  But I am also probably in the minority for that.  My thought is.. what does this actually entail?  If you win this contest, do you actually get to hang out with him for a bit?  If this is just some photo op, and that's it, no thank you. That is WAY too much work for a little pay out.

Well, let's see... here is the contest:

The winner will receive two VIP tickets to Mayer's show at the Forum in Los Angeles on Sept. 14. Airfare and hotel accommodations are included, and the winner will also experience a meet-and-greet with the singer and take home his personal PRS Silver Sky guitar.

Ok, so it is a bit more than just a photo opportunity, but unless you are some die-hard John Mayer fan... and there are those people out there, for sure, I don't think I would go to all this work. But there is a charity/foundation donation involved.  That would be a good idea.  I think I might just make a donation and call it a day.

 But, with all of that said... I do like John Mayer... very talented musician.
