Giveaway! Malicious But Delicious Dinner-- CANCELLED!!

***SORRY TO SAY THIS DINNER HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE, SO THE CONTEST HAS BEEN CANCELLED
******************************












Hey everyone!

I've got 2 tickets to give away to the upcoming "Malicious but Delicious" dinner July 9th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. It's being held at COurses Restaurant downtown. I'm already attending and would love to meet some of my readers there! It's a 21 and over dinner, so please don't enter if you're not over 21. I think this sounds like a very fun event.  If you don't win the tickets, you can purchase them here:

  2. The crayfish salad sounds amazing. I had some soup from Bluebeard at the Soup Fest this past winter and it was delicious.

  5. How cool! I think I'd like to try Craig Baker's course, just because kimchi has always fascinated/terrified me.

  6. As unappetizing as it sounds, I'm most anxious to try the Pig in S#%t

  8. Going to mow and pickle some forest floor today. There may be poison ivy in it. Hope the menu contains an antidote.

  9. Oh my, that menu looks amazing. I think the crayfish salad really captures my attention -- I don't believe I've ever tried day lillies. It all looks like a lot of fun, though!

    They all sound great, it's a toss up between a Pin in SH%t or the Thai red curry carp. Sounds like fun!

  12. Asian carp looks good to me (as long as its not jumping off the plate and hitting people in the face)!

  20. It would be the dessert course, in all honesty (as that's the one I'd be most likely to crib from in my own kitchen). Thanks for the fun contest! -tom
