We here at Clean Plate Charlie have two pairs of tickets  to the 2011 Las Olas Wine and Food Festival (value of $200 per pair) to give away to readers.

The event takes place this Friday, April 29, from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Wander along the closed-off Las Olas Boulevard and sample food, wine, and

spirits from some of the area's finest restaurants -- there were 71

vendors at last count. And be sure to cast your vote for your favorite

cupcake while you're there -- we'll be hosting the inaugural New Times Cupcake Battle as part of the festival.

Express your adulation for frosting and cake by composing a cupcake-themed haiku in the comments section below. Then rally your friends to "like" your haiku on this page. The deadline is noon, Wednesday, April 27.

One pair of tickets will go to the haiku that is "liked" the most. The other pair will be awarded to the writer of the haiku that the New Times staff chooses.

Check back on CleanPlateCharlie.com Wednesday afternoon and we'll tell you who wins! 

(After we announce them, the two winners will need to provide their email addresses or telephone numbers so we can coordinate and get those tickets to you!)
