Great Big Home and Garden Expo Giveaway

Two blog posts in one day. I told you that 2012 was going to be great! Speaking of great...

The Great Big Home and Garden Expo approached me about hosting a ticket giveaway for two general admission tickets to one reader for the day of their choice. The third annual expo runs from Saturday, February 4th - Sunday, February 12th at the IX Center. More than 650 exhibitors will be in attendance, showcasing their techniques in cooking, gardening, home improvement and more.

Obviously, followers of this blog are interested in food. Well, they have some great demonstrations scheduled:
- "AMP 150 Favorites" with Jeff Jarret of AMP 150
- "Italian Comfort Food" with Loretta Paganini of Sapore
- "Best of Sergio's and Sarava" with Sergio Abramof

- "Death by Chocolate" with Stefanie Paganini of the International Culinary Arts and Sciences Institute
- "Best of Umami" with Matthew Anderson
- "Easy, Elegant and Entertaining Eats" with Rocco Whalen of Fahrenheit

A couple of my favorite chefs are listed there, so my interest was peaked. Also, "R" and I have constantly been involved with home improvement projects since I moved in four years ago. Can you say "bachelor pad"? We've come a long way, but there is always more that I want to do.

I can't wait to check out the expo for the first time, and you should too! One lucky reader will for free, so just leave me a comment on this post telling me which culinary-related demo you'd be most interested in. I'll select a winner, using random.org, on Friday, January 27th. You can also receive a second entry for tweeting "I want to attend the Great Big Home and Garden Expo for free, courtesy of @BiteBuff at http://tinyurl.com/89ac8zj." Make sure that you leave a second comment on this post for any tweets sent.

Lastly, all readers can receive a $1 discount by purchasing your tickets online and entering the promo code "BITEBUFF" at check out. You automatically get a $3 discount for ordering online, but this gives you an additional $1 off your general admission ticket- a savings of $4.

Good luck, and I hope to see you there!

What home improvement projects have you tackled in your house?

Disclosure: I was provided with two general admission tickets for myself and two general admission tickets for one reader in exchange for this post. The opinions stated are 100% my own.
