Win 2 Tickets to the 1st Vendy Food Truck Awards in Chicago!

September 17, 2013

October is near. If you ventured outside to a food truck today (or in the past week, really), the air would have indicated as much. Not gonna lie, we couldn’t be more excited. Not only do we love fall, but that means that the Vendy awards are riiiight around the corner on October 5 (full details here).



We’ve heard many a mention of the Vendy awards in other cities. Finally, they’re coming to sweet home Chicago. For $45 a person (tickets here- or win below), you can nosh on dishes from trucks nominated by the community (polls still open here) and bottomless beer from Brooklyn Brewery at Kendall College. Then, enjoy the mini awards ceremony. To us, that’s a perfect fall afternoon.

The fine folks over at the Vendys thought y’all might like the chance to win a free pair of tickets. Yes? Here’s how we’re going to do it!

Comment on THIS blog post and leave your Twitter name or some other way to be contacted should you be the lucky doggy to win. Each person should only leave 1 comment, por favor! Dupes will be eliminated.

At 5 CT on Friday, I will make & tweet a Vine that shows each person’s name who commented on the post on a piece of paper, fold them all up and have a random person draw one out of a bag. I’ll notify the winner via the method posted in the blog post AND post the winner on the blog post just in case.

If I don’t hear back from the winner by Sunday at noon, I’m drawing again! GOOD LUCK! Share with friends and make them all pinky swear they’ll you if they win.

P.S.  We just realized we can GIF up these blog posts. Get excited/you have been warned.


UPDATE: Congrats to Bret @bqdaddy, winner of the tickets! Thanks to all who entered, hope to see you there! Today I was asked to judge the Vendy’s, and obvi I accepted, so say hi if you see me (Alex)!

    I’ve eaten at plenty a cooking truck this year. Never thought I’d say that about Chicago a year ago. It’s kinda funny that the “classics” (Brown Bag, DucknRoll, Schnitzel King) have since opened up *amazing!* restaurants. Still, more food for me! -@thejuddly

    • Alex Levine

      So true! Their restaurants are awesome.

  • Gregory Carter
