And the winner is: Bob, who selected 259; the winning number was 230 (screen shot to the right). Thanks to everyone who participated. Tomorrow’s giveaway is the legendary VinGardeValise, the wine suitcase to end all wine suitcases (and a pal of the blog).
Today, to celebrate the blog’s eighth anniversary, the prize is a $50 Wine,com gift card (and my thanks to the people at Wine.com for their continuing support). This is the third of five daily giveaways; check out this post to see the prizes for the rest of the week.
Complete contest rules are here. Pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of this post. You can’t pick a number someone else has picked, and you need to leave your guess in the comments section of this post — no email entries or entries on other posts. Unless the number is in the comments section of this post, the entry won’t count.
If you get the blog via email or RSS, you need to go to this post on the website to enter (click the link to get there). At about 5 p.m. central today, I’ll go to random.org and generate the winning number. The person whose entry is closest to that number gets the gift pack.
