The annual Wine & Dine for the Arts food and wine festival is next week. The multi-day event includes tastings, chefs and restaurants, seminars, and competitions for sliders, baristas, and bar tenders. We have a pair of tickets to the grand tasting on Saturday, January 18 and we're giving them away -- maybe to you.

Could be big, could be small, could be whatever. We'll draw one comment at random -- that person will win the tickets.

The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
