America comes together twice a year to celebrate Frenchitude: Bastille Day and Beaujolais Nouveau release day. The more bacchanalian of the two celebrations is taking place this week. This Friday, November 20, the French-American Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest is hosting the 17th annual Beaujolais Nouveau wine-tasting festival, which the Weekly is cosponsoring. And we're giving away two free tickets to the event.
The festival will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at SODO Park, Herban Feast's event space, and will feature food and Beaujolais Nouveau from three different producers (Georges Duboeuf, Joseph Drouhin and Terres Dorées). We'll give away two tickets -- a $136 value -- to the person who posts the most entertaining response to the following question in the comments section:
Name three things the French still do better than us.
The contest ends at 4 p.m. tomorrow, and I'll announce the winners by 5. Note: You'll have to put your correct email address in the comments form for us to contact you regarding the win, but don't worry -- I'm not technologically savvy enough to do anything else with it.
