Greetings from Foodtopia, aka Asheville,
One of the main perks of our Asheville walking food tours is getting to see the best restaurants in Asheville from a different perspective. On our Asheville tours our guests are lucky to visit local businesses during closed hours, off hours and busy moments and get separate treatment, they get something different plated for them, they often get to meet some of the faces of our food and beverage partners, all the while having their own personal server/escort in the form of our guides. Unlike a normal dining experience, our guests get to ham it up without abandon, and the camaraderie that ensues is a blast to see as an Eating Asheville Food Tour Guide. Since the atmosphere is so laid back I’ve noticed our food tourists feel free to take tons of pictures, and I am always wondering about all those photos out there that we here at Eating Asheville Food Tour headquarters never get to see.
Sure some photos make their way to Trip Advisor or Yelp or Facebook on occasion, but the vast majority of Asheville food tour documentation is around the country in the hands of our many culinary adventurers, collecting digital dust if you will. So we hatched the idea for an Eating Asheville Photo Contest! If you have been on a tour and captured some of the sights(or sounds too if you have video), we’d love to see your best shots and share them with all of our food tour followers. And to make it worth your while, we are offering prizes for the best photos in three different categories: Food, Faces, and Places on the tour.
Food would include the obvious, any shots of restaurant tour samples or food getting prepared or served; Faces can be you and your friends and family or anyone else from the Asheville restaurants you visited or your guide; and Places is all about the restaurants themselves, shots of dining rooms or buildings.
The winners in each category will get a gift certificate for FOUR spots on any of our tours! That’s right, FOUR tour tickets go to the winners selected out of each category! Tickets will have no expiration date and are transferable. To submit your entries, e-mail JPEGs to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘EAT Photo Contest’ as the subject. September 30th will be the deadline, and we’ll announce the winners during the first week of October.
Annnnnddd…. if you don’t have any great photos to enter, we are offering a weekday Classic Tour Discount to give you a chance to snap some in the next few weeks. Join us for any of our weekday classics on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday for the rest of September and get 20% OFF! Use the promo code CLASSIC20 when booking your tour, and enjoy the streets of Asheville in the beautiful end of summer weather, and feel free to give us a call or email if you have any questions. Happy September!
