Win a Ben & Jerry’s 22-Pint Ice Cream Social!

It’s super hot outside, so maybe you want to win this baseball cap…

You know what? I’ll also throw in 22 pints of ice cream so you can have a party! —courtesy of Ben & Jerry’s.

They are still promoting their Greek Frozen Yogurt. You can use your winnings to get either this or any ice cream variety.

I was probably supposed to giveaway two winners of 10-pints. But I figure one winner of 20 pints is more awesome. Than I said fuck it, I’m going to add two more pints! Plus a couple of t-shirts, ice cream scoops, bags to put the ice cream in and this cool Pint Cozy (coosie?)…

Fuck it. I’ll throw in an extra Pint Cozy!

How to Win –2 ways:

1) Follow my Twitter (chinolam) and Retweet my tweet about this giveaway. Tweet is below.

2) Find me on Facebook and both LIKE and COMMENT on my post about this giveaway. If you SHARE it, I’ll give you a bonus entry.

You can do all options and I’ll give you an entry for each (up to 3). I’ll pick a winner next week. Good luck!


Win a Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine

I have a brand new unopened Nespresso Pixie espresso machine to give to one of you guys. I’ll also throw in a pretty big box of coffee capsules, a new Nespresso Aeroccino Plus and coffee tumbler cup.

All you’ll have to do is follow me on Twitter and retweet my tweet about this contest (as seen below). I’ll pick a winner a week from now. Prize will be for pickup in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

I’ve had one of these Nespresso Pixies for a year now. It’s super quick to heat up and start using …in under 30 seconds.

You should read about the first time I had eight Nespresso espressos in one night …and the more recent time when I drank eight more with Padma.

The Soft Serve Fruit Co – Win a $20 gift card!

I was invited to taste the new The Soft Serve Fruit Co in the Upper East Side. I wasn’t sure what it was, because I’m bad at reading my emails. It looks like frozen yogurt, but it’s fruit —(fruit puree, water and cane sugar). Their whole shtick is “Cholesterol free, Fat free, Dairy free, Gluten free”. I don’t usually eat sweets or treats and this was really tasty. The right amount of sweetness. Not too much.

They have a toppings bar so could fuck up any healthy thing you were going for. The picture is of their Crunchy Salty (pretzels, chocolate chips, hot peanut butter over banana soft serve). It was really yummy.

You can win this $20 gift card they gave me. The contest is to send me a quick photo or drawing of how hot, sweaty and desperate you are for a frozen treat (that you are willing to let me republish). Best photo wins. Contest ends June 3, 2011 . Send pics to …I sound like a filthy old man.

The Soft Serve Fruit Co – 1379 3rd Ave (btwn 78 & 79th St) New York, NY 10075
…they are opening up a Union Square store in June!

Senegalese Summer Ticket Giveaway

I have a free ticket to giveaway (courtesy of Lake Isle Press) to this awesome food event, celebrating Pierre Thiam’s battle on Iron Chef America. There will be a special screening of this upcoming episode where he battles Iron Chef Bobby Flay, unlimited sangria & Senegalese food and music.

All you have to do to enter for the ticket giveaway is email me at and I’ll either pick one from random or choose the strangest message. If no one enters, I’ll just take your mom.

Tickets are also available here for $25 advance ($30 door). No need to tell me to drink $25 worth of sangria and try new ethnic food I’ve never had.

Ice Cream Drawing Winners

For the SONIC Drive-In Ice Cream Social and lunch box goodie prizes, here are the best three submissions …out of a record-high three submitters. They are pretty rad.

From C. Marie: “Here is my drawing of all my friends if they were all women eating ice cream in a field at sunset listening to Ghostrider by Suicide. The flavors are Vanilla, Pistachio, Strawberry, and Hazelnut. I painted it on a piece of resume paper I found on the ground because what else would I use it for?”

I like the story behind this. I can’t believe the dog eats Pistachio!!

Double submission from BaconDevil:

If I was the size of a Bacon Devil, I guess I would also bath it in a sundae. But would I really make out with it? …What flavor?

And finally, from someone who is to remain anonymous:

Thanks for your drawings and thank you SONIC for the prizes.
