Giveaway: Pasadena Wine Festival

We’re excited to announce an awesome giveaway for the Los Angeles area: Pasadena Wine Festival passes. The PWF will be hosted at one of my favorite places, the lovely Los Angeles County Arboretum, on Saturday, October 9, 2010 from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. I haven’t been to the PWF before, but their site boasts of a global wine selection, cheese and other food, games, and tram tours of the Arboretum.

Food trucks in attendance will be The Grilled Cheese Truck, World Fare, Dosa Truck, Crepe’n Around, Border Grill, and Sprinkles (who I didn’t even know had trucks).

Here are the details! To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment and be sure it contains an e-mail address where we can reach you. If you’ve attended the PWF before or have tried any of these food trucks, we would especially love to hear about it. The giveaway will close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 1, 2010. From the entrants we will randomly choose five winners who will each receive one pair of General Admission tickets.

Good luck to everyone, and we look forward to seeing you there!

  1. I LOVE the Grilled Cheese Truck, even though I’ve had to wait an hour every time I’ve tried it! Border Grill has been on my radar b/c I’ve heard good things about it.

    Now that Sprinkles is opening a location in La Jolla, I wonder if it’ll ever be popular enough in San Diego to merit having a Sprinklesmobile here? If anything can jump start the SD food truck scene, it’d be cupcakes!

  2. I have never been to the PWF & it seems like it would be a fun even to attend.
    have not been to the Arboretum in years. I am familiar with the great tasting food on the Crepe’n Around truck which is one of my favorites! Shared to my FB wall & tweeted @dreamin2win via share link above.

    Thanks & best of luck to all that enter!!

  3. Im going to take the whole family this year! Ive been waiting all year for this event. Great music, food, and nice people. Come on out!

  4. The Arboretum is a beautiful place. I went there once a few years ago and I’m excited to go again to enjoy some wine and take in the scenery!

  5. Attended the PWF last year – beautiful venue, great music, good food, enjoyed the wine tasting! Looking forward to PWF 2010, ESPECIALLY with the additions of the food trucks – brilliant idea!!

  6. incredibly excited about what hopes to be my FIRST PWF, or just wine festival in general. being utterly surrounded by good food, good wine, good people and good music. Can anyone ask for more?

  7. I was at the PWF last year & had a BLAST! I can’t wait for it to come back this year, and I’m soooooo excited to finally get a chance to try the Grilled Cheese truck! It seems like it always escapes me!

  8. This will be my first PWF, however I have tried some of the food trucks that will be there.
    For anyone who attends and tries the grilled cheese truck, I recommend the Brie Melt (on cranberry walnut bread)
    Double Cream Brie, Sliced Pears and Honey
    I have had sprinkles cupcakes before, and they are all oh so delicious but my favorite would have to be the red velvet and peanut butter. Their lemon cupcakes are delicious, as well!

    I hope my suggestions are helpful! Thank you for giving me a chance to be part of the give away!

  9. I went to the PWF last year and absolutely loved it. It was my first time wine-tasting, and I was ABSOLUTELY thrilled that it happened there. I often discussed my interest in participating in wine tasting with my fiancee, and he and I agreed that we would both hold out until we could get up to Napa Valley, C.A. However, my physics professor told our class what a wonderful time he had at PWF 2 years ago, and it was coming up again. I decided to just bite the bullet and try wine-tasting there instead of waiting to visit Napa. I WAS SO HAPPY I DID. We both enjoyed it thoroughly, and cannot WAIT to go again. It was fun, romantic, relaxing, and educational (which I ended up appreciating later on when my colleagues were discussing their favorite wines and I was able to sound super smart) .Yes, the tickets seem somewhat pricey but if you can get some cash together to go, it’s totally worth it. You end up walking out with a vast knowledge of various kinds of wine, and the food is beyond yummy. I mean, who doesn’t love a good cheese? Grilled cheese truck is amazing,and sprinkles cupcakes are just the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to go this year!!! Hook it up with those free tickets, I’ll be your spokesgirl forever!! 🙂 #1 FOODIE OVER HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. I live in Arcadia and have always wanted to go to this festival! I have grown up here and have never actually had the time to enjoy the arboretum, so winning this would allow me to finally check out something in my own neighborhood! My birthday is on October 4th and this would be such an amazing gift to win. I have luckily been able to try out all of the food trucks listed above in your post. Grilled Cheese is by far my favorite (and my guilty pleasure). You only live once and when I see the cheesy mac melt on their menu, I cannot resist! I love the dessert crepes from Crepe’N’Around and of course the red velvet cupcakes from Sprinkles! If I were lucky enough to win tickets to this festival, it would make my birthday! Thanks for the opportunity!

  11. I love exploring new events and if there will be food trucks there, I am ready to experience it to the fullest!

    I have had a few of these trucks but have never been to this venue before. I would love to bring my other foodie friend and check it all out! One of my favorites is the Grilled Cheese Truck… even if I did wait almost an hour for it! I’m extremely excited for this event!

    Thanks again 🙂 Great wine, friends, and food…can’t ask for anything better!!

  12. Hi,

  13. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!! I have only tried the Grilled Cheese Truck and they are amazing! Sprinkles is probably my favorite cupcake place, but have never bought from their truck. Can’t wait for the Pasadena Wine Fest!!

  14. I have never even heard of this and I live like 30 os so miles away. Sounds really interesting and fun!

  15. Never been to the wine festival, I work nights so a fun day outdoors sounds great…not to mention the wine.

  16. Thank you very much for the chance to win tickets to this event. Me and my Fiance just finish school, and have nut much chance to go out and have fun. this looks like a great opportunity to do so. if I dont win, i still look foward to seing everyone there…..
