Win a Pair of Tickets to JA World Uncorked!

If you're wondering what to do this coming Saturday evening, but you've got no money after paying your bills, there are a few options.

You could dive for couch change and go out for a burger (fun factor about a five); you could go out to the Everglades and hunt pythons (fun factor about a zero) -- or you could take a friend to a swanky cocktail and food event for free (fun factor about a million).

Clean Plate Charlie has a pair of tickets to the JA World Uncorked event  to give away to a lucky reader (value $300).

The event, held on Saturday, January 19, from 6:30 to 10 :30 p.m. at

Junior Achievement World at Huizenga Center

at Broward College (1130 Coconut Creek Boulevard, Coconut Creek),

features over 20 of South Florida's best restaurants, craft beers, fine

wines, and a burger battle. Live music, a silent auction, and free

valet parking round out this evening of fun.

To win, "friend" Clean Plate Charlie on our Facebook page and let us know why you should win the tickets (begging, pleading, and being funny all help the cause). We'll pick one reader to win the tickets by 2 p.m. today. You won't even have to pick up the tickets - we'll have your name at the door (that's how swanky this event is). You do, however, have to be 21 or over to attend the event.

Tickets for JA World Uncorked! are still available for purchase and a portion of proceeds benefits Junior Achievement. Tickets include all food, drinks,

live entertainment by The Edge Band, a silent auction, and complimentary valet parking and are $150 each.
