carrabba’s italian grill’s “profess your love” contest: win a trip to vegas!

OK Italian food lovers (and legal U.S. residents), here’s your chance to show just how deeply your passion flows and possibly win a trip to Las Vegas in the process.

That’s right! I said Vegas!

Carrabba’s Italian Grill’s Profess Your Love Contest

Carrabba’s Italian Grill recently announced the “Profess Your Love” contest in which Italian food lovers can submit a short love note to their favorite food or dish, expressing how it has made time with friends and family more special for a chance to win a variety of prizes, including a trip to Las Vegas.

One grand prize winner to receive the “Ultimate Love Escape” including:

• Airfare for two to Las Vegas
• A romantic dinner for two at Carrabba’s
• Tickets to The Beatles LOVE Show by Cirque du Soleil
• A two-night stay at The Venetian and private gondola ride

Nine runners up will receive dinner for four at Carrabba’s, an apron, and signed cookbook.

Entries can be submitted online here until March 31, 2008.

See official contest rules here.

Now Profess Your Love–and in bocca al lupo!

P.S. And although I’ve mentioned wanting to go to Vegas, if you win, I really won’t expect an invite. Really. Enjoy yourself. I’ll be fine. I’ll just go to the real Venice to spite you.

12 Beans of Wisdom to “carrabba’s italian grill’s “profess your love” contest: win a trip to vegas!”
  1. Kathy

    Well, I have no reason to enter the contest, considering that I live in Reno and have been to Vegas numerous times, but if you go to Vegas, I’d love to fly down there and meet you!

    Thanks Kathy; I’d definitely let you know 🙂

  2. Gil

    Thanks for the post. Maybe, I’ll try entering and see what happens. Too bad the restaurant wasn’t in Italy.

    Well Gil I’m sure you have lots of great foods to choose from….

    Fun, fun, fun. I’m in the mood for Vegas right about now– it being the bleakest part of winter here in the midwest. Now, I’m off to think of what to say to win this trip.

    Ally, best of luck! Write well!

    Hmmmm….Vegas? I don’t think so. But I absolutely love your Live Traffic Feed. It’s really a cool feature.
    When are you going to Palermo? Are you staying in one place or
    exploring? Taormina is beautiful if you get the chance to go there.
    Have fun. ~C

    I’m glad you like the Feed! I think it’s pretty cool too, although I know some people can be freaked out seeing their town come up! We did a little jaunt through Sicily from Messina to Tindari to Palermo; I’ve actually already been to Taormina, and yes, it is quite beautiful…as were all the places we visited 🙂

  5. I’ll take the real Venice any day! Besides, I don’t think I could be trusted in Vegas!

    I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve tagged you for a meme.

    Susan at Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy’s last blog post..It’s Raining Memes!

    I don’t mind at all! I’ll be right over to check it out 🙂

  6. I try to avoid Vegas at all costs. I can’t wait for you to go and hear your POV of it.

    Yes please go to the real Venice before you see the fake gondola in Vegas. One good thing is Venice is a lot closer to where you live. 🙂

    Honestly being that I’m not very into flash and gambling, I don’t imagine I’ll *love* Vegas, but it would be an experience. And yes, Venice being closer is definitely a plus in all respects 😉

    What a cool contest! Thanks for letting us know about it. I’ve been to Vegas once for a business trip. It was really fun and would be great to go back.

  8. Joanne

    Wow, I never win contests (and I’m not a US resident legal or otherwise) so I won’t be joining, but I would love to see Cirque du Soleil with my fellas.
    Sigh, someday. Are you loving Palermo?

    Was almost certainly loving Palermo when you typed that Joanne 😉

    qualcosa di bello’s last blog post..updates

    Well so would I, but hey Vegas is “interesting” too 😉

  10. 02.25.2008

    How fun!

    I’m probably going to pass on it, although I *love* Carrabbas, I think this contest isn’t for me. Ah well… C’est la vie, yes?

    YOU should win it and come visit the states!
