Good Food & Wine Show 2011

May 28, 2011 · 35 comments

You know what I hate? When my sandwich gets caught on my tooth.

I also hate it when you realise you need to turn around when you’re walking somewhere busy, and you feel you should do something like look at your watch and act surprised before turning around so you don’t look weird just turning around unexpectedly.

Most of all I hate giving someone bad news. And by someone I mean you. And by bad I mean free. And by news I mean tickets. And by hate I mean love.


Look! A talking dog!


Yes, for making it this far through this post, you deserve a treat! I have two double passes to the upcoming Good Food and Wine Show in Perth to give away, so you may well find yourself trying to decide who to take along for a day of lashings of free food samples, watching celebrity chefs ham (bacon?) it up on stage, and tasting your way through enough wines to have you needing a bit of maple bacon action yourself the next morning. If you’re really lucky you might even get condescended to by a heavily mutton-chopped man!

The Good Food and Wine Show hits Perth over 15-17 July, including an After Dark session on Friday 15th, and is held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre which is right next to the Perth Busport and thus perfectly located for the enthusiastic wine taster.

If you would like to win one of the two double passes up for grabs, you have two ways to go about it:

1) Simply “like” the new and exciting(!) Hold the Beef page on Facebook and leave a comment on the wall saying you want to enter the giveaway. Feel free to also share something you hate. Or declare your love for something. Maple bacon, perhaps.

2) You can also leave a comment on this post saying you would like to enter.

I will give one double pass away through each type of entry, and you’re welcome to enter both. I’ll randomly select the two winners on Monday 13th June and post them out to you that week.

Good luck!

(also, thanks to Tim for the trip down Sesame Street memory lane, and Erin for the maple bacon tease)
