The first contest will appear September 15th on the Contest page, using Angel B’s fabulous question suggestion (I’d post it here now, but only answers on the Contest page will count, so I’ll keep it under wraps until then).
The second contest, which will happen in November, is going to be a little more complicated…. I loved the idea of having a share your favorite jazz age cocktail (or mocktail) recipe contest, proposed by Cassandra. The only thing is, the Contest page form isn’t really set up to handle long answers, and, also, I want everyone to be able to see and share their recipes, which doesn’t work on the Contest page, where all the answers go privately to me.
The way around this? Everyone can contribute their recipes here on the News page in November, and then I’ll make a list of them on the Contest page, where you can vote for them by name, thus solving the Contest form problem. It also means that people can come up with fabulous and absurd titles for their cocktails!
An Ashford Fizz, anyone?
