You Really "Like" Us: Winner of Pairings Tickets


Pairings, New Times' annual food and wine event featuring carefully selected wines and artistically crafted dishes from more than 40 of the area's best local restaurants, turns 5 this year, and we couldn't be more proud.

So, we've been giving away a few precious pairs to some lucky readers the last couple of weeks. This week, we asked you to "like" our Facebook page and let us know what you'd like to see more of on Clean Plate Charlie. Many of you commented, and this morning we randomly selected a name from among you.

Lindsey Ian German is the winner of this week's tickets. Congratulations,

Lindsey, and thanks for you comment. We'll get your tickets to you as soon

as possible.


Thanks again to Lindsey and to all of our readers who commented, complimented, and made suggestions.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
