Food Giveaways

Preview/Giveaway: Food Tickets to Lexus South Pointe Fall Food Festival (2016)

I think most would agree that the best events are ones with great food.

If you make that food local, have proceeds go to charity, and host the party in a cool venue then you’ve really got yourself a great event!

That’s what we can expect on Sept. 22 at Lexus South Pointe‘s Fall Food Festival!

The event features food from a bunch of great local chefs and supports a great cause: YWCA Edmonton‘s domestic violence prevention and recovery program.

Lexus South Pointe reached out to see if I was interested in helping promote their first fall food festival and I happily obliged.

Hope to see you at Lexus South Pointe 830 100 St. on Sept. 22, 2016 for their Fall Food Festival!
Hope to see you at Lexus South Pointe 830 100 St. on Sept. 22, 2016 for their Fall Food Festival!

This is how the event will work:

  • Show up! It’s from 6 – 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 22 at 830 100 St SW.
  • Be given 5 free food tickets
  • Choose to buy more free food tickets (with proceeds supporting the YWCA)
  • Visit different booths and redeem your tickets for glorious food!

These are the local restaurants involved:

It’ll be a great, delicious event showcasing some of our city’s fine chefs and all for a great cause!

I’m excited to help promote the festival.

Lexus South Pointe is always trying to be involved in the community and I think they really put it best when they told me ‘what brings people together better than great food?’

They plan on making the Fall Food Festival an annual event and something I didn’t know: I guess Lexus South Pointe regularly hosts other events throughout the year too – most of them free of charge with free food.

To help drum up some awareness for the festival, I’m giving away 20 Lexus South Pointe food tickets and a bottle of wine (which will be redeemed at the event).

Enter below and RSVP on the Lexus South Pointe Facebook Event here!

They also have an Eventbrite page where you can register so they get an idea of head count, but it is free to attend with the first 5 tickets per person free, you just have to buy additional food tickets while supplies last!

** GIVEAWAY **

Enter to win:

  • 20 Lexus South Pointe food tickets
  • 1 bottle of wine

  • There are soooo many beautiful #InstagrammableWalls in Calgary! This one (called #BeCubed) is a popular #yyc photo spot. 📸 Having fun exploring the city with our friends @kathytrinhle, @big_mitchy16, and of course @mikethyking, who has been a great #InstagramHusband. 💕 Also nice to meet @worth_y, who shared a lot of great wall spots with us!! Watch my blog this week for a Guide to #IGWallsofYYC! #capturecalgary 🤗

  • My favourite appetizer at the new @thebutternuttree is their Grilled Bannock topped with wild mushrooms, berries, pumpkin seeds and "winged kelp." 🤗 It was delicious! The Broccoli with crispy pork belly and leek ash coated duck egg (check my IG Story for #yolkporn!) was also excellent. Beautiful plates and beautiful views at this restaurant too (high ceiling windows all over). We had a lovely dinner last night at the #yegmedia event in a private room with #yegfood friends! Pricing wise- appetizers at #TheButternutTree are $13-$19, entrees are $28-$44, so it would make for a bit pricier a night out but you'll find a lot of unique ingredients here. You can tell lots of care is going into these dishes. Congrats on your opening Chef Downey & team! And thanks @bonafidemediapr for inviting us to check it out. #MeetatTBT ☺️

  • My favourite person to get my #yegseglegs with! 👫@mikethyking & I killed it (if I do say so myself 😌) on @rivervalleyadventureyeg's segways yesterday while filming for @travelalberta's "Edmonton on Wheels" promo video! 💕 I actually wish I could segway as a primary means of transportation, it's so fun/easy (and you can end up going so fast it's thrilling! 💨)

  • Sunday Funday! 💕 Today we went on the 15-passenger @urbanpedaltours bike through @oldstrathcona with @travelalberta! We stopped at @elcortezyeg (for chips, salsa & guac 😍), @maltandmortar, and @situationbeer before renting segways & bikes from @rivervalleyadventureyeg! It was a pretty wicked day exploring Edmonton on wheels. I can't wait to see the video (not airing until next spring lol). I LOVE segways!! #yegseglegs 🤗 See more from the day in my Insta Stories!

  • Thanks to the nearly 40 people who came out on the fourth Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton photo walk (#IGWallsofYEG) with me & @britl today! 💕😊📸 20 walls and 7 km later, safe to say we explored the heck out of Edmonton. 😅 I'm excited to head to Calgary next weekend with @mikethyking & @tourismcalgary to help map out their most #instagrammablewalls! If you've got #yyc wall suggestions, please let me know. (We'll be crowdsourcing all week! 📸)

  • This week I made a ton of homemade #gyoza that we've been enjoying, and froze a bunch for future enjoyment. 😊 I was pretty proud of my dumpling pleat and overall flavour/texture. (Artie was too!) I'm a "little of this, little of that" kind of cook (when not eating out lol), whose with me? 🙋🏻💁🏻👩🏻‍🍳
