UPDATE: We have picked and notified a winner!!! See after the jump.
Yes, we know this is super-last-minute, as the Las Olas Food & Wine Festival is THIS FRIDAY from 7:30 to 10 pm, but good things come in late packages... right?
Long story short: This year's festival, presented by Premier Beverage and benefiting the American Lung Association, will feature more than 70 restaurants and 40 wine / beer tables, plus that infamous New Times cupcake battle we've been writing about for the past few weeks.
Tickets cost $100 apiece but we've got two for the low, low price of absolutely free! All you need to do to enter is follow these directions:

We got lots of great entries --- but congratulations go to Kari Geck, whose 50th birthday is this weekend (she's an Earth Day baby), had her "first kiss w/ husband at Bon ton square, Backstreets (now America's Backyard) in 1990," is "sick of grilled cheese sandwiches & Brown bag lunches," wants to hit up Cafe de Paris, By Word of Mouth, Blue Moon Fish Co, and 3030 Ocean, and says "Life is short; eat dessert first." Amen to that!
