It's now time to give away free shit. You've heard of The Taste, right? No? Let me help you with that rock you've been living under. It's the collaborative effort between Food & Wine magazine and the LA Times, a four day food festival spread between Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Downtown. The Taste runs September 2-5 which means it starts this coming Friday. Yes, this coming Friday is September 2 people.
Signed on to partake is Roy Choi, Scott Conant, Duff Goldman, Giada De Laurentiis, Susan Feniger, Alex Guarnaschelli, but enough name dropping. As is to be expected, we're giving away a slew of prizes, so if you want to attend and can't shell out $125 to eat 32 burgers at Burgers & Beer (which Eater is co-hosting, btw), go ahead and win your way in.
So, here's how to play. Tell us about your top taste of this past year and what made it special. Pictures, videos, and essays are all welcome and make sure to send your most compelling cases to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday at noon. As for the prizes, first place scores the Ultimate Indulgence package (Art of Mixing OR Burgers & Beer, Secrets from the Kitchen & Cellar, Taco Tequila Tryst, Fashion Bites Brunch, Street Eats, Food Noir and Picnic in the Hills); second place walks away with the Daytime Delights package (Secrets from the Kitchen & Cellar, Fashion Bites Brunch, Street Eats and Picnic in the Hills); and third nabs the Night Crawl package (Art of Mixing OR Burgers & Beer, Taco Tequila Tryst and Food Noir). See ya there. :)
