Clean Plate Charlie is giving away a pair of tickets to the Gridiron Grill-Off, which takes place this Saturday, December 1 from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater. 

The tickets, normally $75 each, allow you to chow down on over two dozen different food and wine pairings -- each cooked by a Miami Dolphin great and chef team!

All you have to do is go to our Facebook page and tell us why we should

give you the tickets. Shameless self-promotion, obsessive football

worship, and stories of food fanaticism all work for us.

We'll choose the most intriguing or ridiculous answer today at 5 p.m. The only

catch? You have to pick up the tickets by Friday 5 p.m. at our office in


There's also still time to purchase tickets half-priced through our Voice Daily Deals. The tickets, regularly $75, are only $37 each.

Update: We have a winner! John Mallory wrote us an awesome song about wanting to chow down with the greatest names in Dolphins football and south Florida food:

"We love football, meat, and Rock n Roll, so please read our contest entry to the tune of "It's the End of the World as We Know It" while you sing along. "Shula's, Bravo- ribs, & lobster roll..... Slider, swordfish- pork belly, succotash..... Filet mignon, chicken- Zach Attack Venison..... Flat iron, meatball- lamb chop, YOLO..... Salmon, Bimini- and 15th Street Fisheries..... It's the end of my diet as I know it, It's the end of my diet as I know it, It's the end of my diet as I know it, and I feel fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
