Pintxo is turning Two – and we want you to help us celebrate on Sunday, May 6!
What: Pintxo’s 2nd Anniversary Party
When: 5pm-10pm (Bacon Wrapped Dating Eating Contest at 6:00pm)
Where: Pintxo 2207 2nd Ave (between Bell & Blanchard)
What: We’ll have complimentary Paella samples for the first 50 guests, specials on food and cocktails, sangria and kalimotxo plus a bacon wrapped date eating contest at 6:00 p.m.
Facebook Invite: https://www.facebook.com/events/373608879347080/
The Bacon Wrapped Dates eating challenge will consist of 12 contestants attempting to consume 50 bacon wrapped dates in 30 minutes. Contestants who successfully complete the challenge will win a one year supply of bacon wrapped dates; one order per day spanning from May 7, 2012- May 6, 2013 (valued at over $1500).
This year, we’re going to do it a little differently. We’ll be choosing three contestants from our Twitter, Facebook & Blog fans. Eight contestants, who do not win the contest, can “buy in” to the challenge. Last year’s winner, Brandon Mambelli, gets a free pass (he ate 51!!).
Food Challenge contestants will be chosen from entries received via the restaurant’s Facebook/ Twitter/Blog contest. Contestants have from April 23, 2012-May 1, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. to enter. Winners will be randomly chosen from Facebook, Twitter and Pintxo’s Blog and announced shortly after contest close. Winners not chosen by contest can still enter the contest – with a $15 entry fee. If the winner successfully completes the challenge, their entry fee will be returned.
How to enter:
On Twitter, users can enter by following @PintxoSeattle on Twitter and tweet one of the phrases below:
- ”Happy 2nd Anniversary @PintxoSeattle. Pick me for the #BaconWrappedDates Challenge on May 6th! http://bit.ly/Pintxo2nd ”
- Or Tweet a phrase of your choice, but must include the hashtag #baconwrappeddates, the link – http://bit.ly/Pintxo2nd and @pintxoseattle.
- We’re not endorsing an official Facebook contest, because you know, we want to stay within the TOS. But, if you were to go to Facebook we can’t stop you from posting on Pintxo’s wall that you should be picked to complete.
- Contestants can also enter by leaving a comment on this blog post stating why they should be chosen!
We will choose winners randomly from Twitter and Blog comments (and, um, that Book of Face site). Each one is one entry, so enter on all three! We’ll announce winners on May 1, sometime after the contest closes.
Also, make sure to pay attention all week – we’ll be posting/Tweeting daily specials and contests all week, leading up to the party!
See the results and pictures from last year’s party. Good Luck and see you Sunday, May 6.
