I’m back from a work trip in Dublin and the jet lag is still lingering a bit. This week is a BUSY one for the restaurant and hospitality industry of Chicago. Friday is the kickoff event for Chicago Gourmet, the Hamburger Hop as well as the festival which goes on all weekend. I’m excited to see what changes have been made to improve the event from last year. I’ll be posting a 20 Questions piece tomorrow with Sheila O’Grady the Director of the Illinois Restaurant Association, which hosts the Chicago Gourmet event.
I’ve had a lot of invites and offers but there’s one I want to pass along to all of you! Robert Mondavi is giving away a prize pack to my readers. The swag isn’t too bad. The winner will get a Mondavi Kitchen Apron, Key Chain, Sigg water bottle and a copy of Ted Allen’s Book, “The Food You Want to Eat.” Ted will be at the Chicago Gourmet event all weekend. To learn more about Robert Mondavi the best place is to check them out online at http://www.facebook.com/robertmondavi and just hit like.
But Joe, how do I win?
Well, I thought the fairest way would be to have a bit of a raffle. Those who comment throughout the week on all the posts that are up from today through Friday will be put in to a drawing. I’ll pick the winner Friday at 5pm. You will get one chance per day per comment. So if you comment twice in one day you only get one chance.
