Giveaway: Two ARTINI tickets!

Cocktail lover? Our March giveaway is for you!

We’re giving away TWO tickets to ARTINI.

Tweet us at @GirlMeetsFood and tell us why we should pick you to attend. You must also use the hashtag #ARTINIDC.

Be funny. Be creative. Be quirky.

The winner will receive two general admission tickets, perfect for surprising a friend, co-worker or significant other.

This year’s gala will be held Saturday, March 22 at The Corcoran Gallery of Art from 8:30pm to midnight. If you aren’t familiar with ARTINI, here’s the 5 second description. Now through March, mixologists from area restaurants compete to create the most artistic martini inspired by a piece of work at The Corcoran — hence the name “artini.” The city’s favorite artini, chosen via online vote, will be revealed at the gala along with a Critics’ Choice winner.
