taste n’ tinis in hillcrest – giveaway for tickets
December 3rd, 2012Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 11 Comments

Next week on December 13th, Hillcrest will be celebrating it’s 4th Annual “Taste N’ Tinis” event. Think of “Taste of Hillcrest” – but with boozy martinis and retail shopping swirled into the mix!

I finally attended one of the Taste of Hillcrest events this year and it was so much fun trying all of the different samples – so I’m looking forward to this holiday event with the additional boozy cheer in tow. There will be a number of “tastes” available along with over 12 holiday martini’s so you’ll have food in your belly along with all of the booze. It’s also a fun way to get a little holiday shopping in. Last year many retailers offered discounts and savings while the event was going on.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 on the day of the event.

Save that money for Christmas shopping by winning a pair of tickets right here! I have one pair of tickets to giveaway – the winner’s name will be added to the on-call list for the event. You can easily enter to win by answering this question: What’s your favorite holiday treat?

Additional entries are available for liking This Tasty Life on Facebook, liking this post on Facebook (use the buttons on this post) or Tweeting about this giveaway (+1 per entry, please post each as a separate comment).

Update: We have our winner!

Julie from Bananas for Bourbon! I’ll be contacting the winner for her prize. Thanks to everyone for entering!

This giveaway ends on Monday, December 10th at 8PM PST.

Good luck and happy holidays!

Disclaimer: I am receiving a pair of complimentary tickets for my own use as well as a pair to giveaway for this post from McFarlane Promotions. I was not paid for this post and all text is my own.

    I actually have two favorite things, anything gingerbread and homemade saltine toffees.
    I have to keep very limited quantities in the house when I make them for gifts b/c I have a tendency to be all or nothing when they are around.

  2. Kelly says:

    peppermint chocolate cookies!

  3. Juliana B. says:

    My favorite are cranberry bliss bars from Starbs! I have attempted an at home recipe too that was equally as delicious!

  4. Peppermint bark has to be one of my favorite holiday treats. It’s actually easy to make and it makes a nice gift to hand out to people when you forget to buy them a present. :)

  5. Anything involving gingerbread! Cake, cookies, martinis, etc. ;)

  6. I can never get enough of my mom’s tigers milk (involves almond bark, chocolate and peanut butter).

  7. I also liked your page on FB.

  8. And this post on FB, too!

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
