Contest: Win Tickets to the Great American Food and Music Fest

On June 13, the Shoreline Amphitheater will play host to a gaggle of culinary and music stars at the Great American Food and Music Fest, and in MenuPages San Francisco’s first ever prize giveaway, we’d like to send you there, too. Briefly, the June 13 concert/food fest, curated by Serious Eats founder Ed Levine, features Bay Area restaurants and purveyors as well as others from around the country, such as Katz’s Deli from New York and Pink’s Hot Dogs from Los Angeles. One of our favorite old alt-country acts, Little Feat, headlines a bill of bands, who will share the stage with Food Network stars, with the whole thing hosted by Bobby Flay. Here’s how you can win tickets: We’d like you to check out the attached lists of bands and restaurants, and come up with an itinerary of what you’d like to eat while each band plays. Give us a line or two as to what made you match the food to the band, and send that baby in via e-mail.

Details after the jump…

And here’s the twist: We’ve asked Musical Pairings writer Matthew Hickey to judge the competition. He’s looking for creativity as well as sound reasoning, so have fun. Maybe Big Bad Voodoo Daddy makes you think of Swingers, which puts you in LA, so you want to go to Pink’s. Whatever your train of thought, get us an itinerary of at least five pairings (one for each band, but feel free to tack on a couple alternates) by June 9, and Matt will choose his favorite to send to the show. If you don’t win, you can still knock five bucks off admission by entering the code “foodfest” when you buy your tickets online.
