Rice and I just got our 30,000th hit! We were also *this* close to making it in under a year. Oh well. None-the-less, Rice and I are holding a contest to honor and reward our faithful readers. Rice and I met in 1999 when we were placed next-door to each other in the dorms. Since we met in the great state of Wisconsin, why not have a beer themed contest!? Rules after the bump!
Rice and I like to get together, watch some football (or insert Wisconsin Badger sport here), and drink some Wisco beer. Sometimes we cook with beer. We want to hear ONE of the following from you:
- The first time you really learned you liked beer and what kind it was (we don’t judge, unless it’s Budweiser);
- Your favorite recipe involving beer (extra points for pictures or a link to your post about it);
- A fun story about your favorite beer; or
- We at Matzo&Rice understand not everyone likes beer. You can tell us about your favorite beer commercial, logo, or a humorous story involving beer. You don’t even have to drink it. That leaves more for us, anyway.
When you post, make sure you include your email in the “email” tab. We will make sure it’s not posted on the site. If you don’t want to do that, and you’re brave, feel free to post in this format: youremailhandle [at] domain [dot] com.
We will use a random number generator to select the winners. In the event that the winners do not post something to do with beer, do not contact us back, or do not want the prize (we still would like to hear your story), we will select the next random number.
Also, please, no swearing. This is a family site. *snicker* Really, though, keep it PG-13. Our mothers read this.
Contest ends: Sunday, October 11, 2009 at 11:59 pm EDT.
We have 2 prize sets for the winners to choose from, first chosen first sent. Check your email if you’re one of the 2 winners.
1. Set of 5 Leinenkugel’s mini glass glasses. Enjoy the “Flavor of the Northwoods” in these adorable tasting cups. Should your lips get chapped while imbibing, you can use your very own Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat lip moisturizer!
2. Set of 4 Killian’s Irish Red Premium Lager mini plastic cups, along with a Killian’s bottle opener, beer styles handbook (16 pages), and poster explaining the differences in flavors and colors of beer.
Let the contest begin!
