UPDATE: The winning email came in at 2:12 p.m. Check back here tomorrow at noon as we continue CL's Five Days of Christmas giveaway!
For your merriment, Creative Loafing presents its "Five Days of Christmas" giveaway this week. Every day, we will post a five-question quiz. The first person to submit the correct answers by email to firstname.lastname@example.org will receive a prize. The answers to the questions can be found in our website archives, via stories published within the past six months. Today's quiz is relatively easy, but the questions will get harder each day and the prizes better. On Friday - when the questions will be the most difficult - players will be competing for a brand-new laptop (courtesy of Coretek).
*Winners must be able to pick up prize at CL's offices, located at the NC Music Factory.
