Maximizing the ACL experience: CultureMap Foodie Contest
CultureMap has just announced that our ACL Foodie Contest wrap-up party will take place on September 7 at Stubb's, one of the iconic Austin food vendors you'll find at ACL Music Fest. Contest participants who complete our trip on Gowalla will receive an exclusive invitation for the party, featuring Stubb's signature fare, drink specials and most importantly, live drawings for ACL Fest VIP passes, one day passes and gift certificates to local restaurants. And, since a party at Stubb's isn't a party without music, Austin-based alt-country singer Leo Rondeau and his band Dynamite Tales will return from their summer tour to hit the Stubb's stage.
A friendly reminder—or perhaps, a first-time introduction—for festival-heads and food-fanatics, alike: CultureMap has teamed up with the Austin City Limits Music Festival and Gowalla to bring you the "ACL Music Festival Foodie" contest.
Every official ACL Food Court vendor that also has a local storefront is participating; all you have to do to take part is "check in" to five different ACL food vendors locales on Gowalla and post a photo of your order.
That means this journey could take you as near as the Daily Juice on Barton Springs or as far as the Salt Lick in Driftwood; it's entirely up to you. Once you've completed the gastronomic tour of your choosing (again, by checking into five locations), you'll receive the exclusive invitation to join us on September 7th for a party at an undisclosed (but we promise you'll love it) location.
No, it's not just a party; though, the party in and of itself will be pretty rad. Also taking place will be a live drawing during which we will give out one grand prize of 2 three-day VIP passes to ACL, including a foodie pass for free food, all weekend-long.
Don't think you're that lucky? We are also giving away 3 one-day passes to ACL and a variety of gift certificates from ACL food vendors for the runners-up.
Most importantly, like any fair game, you have to be present to collect your winnings.
