Contest Update: Deadline Extended, Requirements Relaxed

We still have two tickets to give away to the Great American Food and Music Fest, and since it seems our existing contest asked a bit much in terms of entry requirements, we’re lowering the bar a bit. We had asked you to submit an itinerary of which food you’d like to eat with each of the five bands on the bill, to be judged by Musical Pairings writer Matthew Hickey. Granted, that was kind of a big job, so we’re reducing the requirement: Just submit one pairing from the festival menu and bill of bands, and Matthew will choose his favorite by noon on Thursday. Feel free to post your response in the comments or e-mail it directly to us. And don’t forget, we have another contest right now in which you can win tickets to Cochon 555 this Sunday. Word to the wise: Your chances in both are pretty darned good right now.
