Giveaway: Chefs in the Garden

This contest is now closed.

If for some reason you are stuck inside right now, stop what you are doing, get up from your desk or couch or whatever, and walk quickly toward the nearest exit and step outside into some of the most glorious weather the Fall season in Arkansas has to offer.

If you are working late and you need help getting past your boss, pick up your cell phone and pretend to be taking an important work call. Look concerned, but not too concerned. Or you could pretend to be taking a call from your doctor. Just get outside, pronto.

It is 75 degrees in Fayetteville right now. Fall is here, the sun is out, the pumpkins are ripening, and next week the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks will host their annual Chefs in the Garden event on Oct. 8 in Fayetteville. Party.

Chefs in the Garden is an annual harvest celebration featuring cooking demonstrations and delicious, delicious samples from some of Fayetteville’s best chefs.

This year, chefs from Café Rue Orleans, Ella’s, Jammin Java, Little Bread Company, Pinnacle Station Local Market, Shelby Lynne’s Cake Shoppe and Soul will be preparing some of their best dishes. Oreo Blue will provide the soundtrack for the evening and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the event. Win ’em.

How to enter
You guys work pretty hard most of the time. But when the weather is this perfect, sometimes you just have to get the heck out of the office and enjoy it.

Leave a comment on this post with an excuse you’ve used to get out of the work for the day or a few hours and you’ll be entered to win. If you’ve never used an excuse to sneak out of work for a while (liar), just make up an awesome excuse for the rest of us deviants to use. Cool?
