For $2,000, fans of the goop goddess Gwyneth Paltrow had the opportunity to purchase Groupon tickets to meet and enjoy a cooking demonstration by the culinary queen. However, with only 60 tickets available, the hot commodity sold out in record time.
The tickets went on sale at midnight, May 15, and were sold out by 12:24 a.m. The all-inclusive trip to New York for two includes roundtrip airfare, transportation, a two-night stay at the Double Tree, spa treatments, dinner for two at the swanky Bistro La Promenade and the crown jewel, a private meet-and-greet and cooking demonstration with People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman In The World.
In the fall of 2008, the 40-year-old Oscar-winning actress launched the lifestyle website goop to share and chat about recipes, travel, food, and fashion. Today, it has expanded to become its own popular brand.
This is goop's first event offered on the popular deal-of-the-day website. The Groupon comes on the heels of word that Paltrow wants to expand her lifestyle site. Recently, goop has begun offering city-guide apps for London, New York, Los Angeles and soon, Paris.
