[CONTEST] Casa Del Barco Giveaway

THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED WITH A COMMENT. STAY TUNED FOR MORE SKULLACIOUS FUTURE GIVEAWAYS!!!

Contest time again! We have been so fortunate to be able to offer so many different and unique skull items on our site, and that list is still growing and diversifying. Today's skulls are in the form of a FREE GIVEAWAY from Casa Del Barco restaurant located in Richmond, VA. This is the first time we have had a restaurant sponsor a giveaway, but they came prepared to offer more than spicy aromas, flavorful dishes, and a one of kind tequila bar. Check out more about our great sponsor and what they want to offer TO YOU.....

"Using recipes passed down from his Hispanic grandmother, Executive Chef Todd Richardson aims to bring a new twist on traditional Mexican dishes to Richmond. Unique entrĂ©es such as Beef Barbacoa Enchiladas, Gaucho Cut Skirt Steak, and Blackstrap Molasses-Glazed Salmon will delight visitors as they dine in the historic circa 1890s Reynolds Metals Italianate building, featuring recycled and repurposed materials throughout, from the tabletops to the bar’s foot rail. Casa Del Barco boasts a growing list of over 100 different tequilas, sure to please the casual spirit drinker to the seasoned aficionado."



That's a lot of skullified goodness to fit onto one plate, and Casa Del Barco is serving it up right by rewarding our skull loving fans with a smorgasbord of wonderful prizes featuring some sensational sugar skulls.  Here's the details: 

PRIZE INFO: Four lucky winners will receive one of the following prizes: 1- CDB skull flask, 1- CDB skull bamboo iPhone cover (Sizes: 4s, 5, 5s or 5c),1- CDB skull t-shirt (mens and/or womens), 1- set of 4 CDB sugar skull pint glasses.  One prize per winner.  

HOW TO ENTER(this is important): Leave a comment stating your opinion on whether you think it's "tequila" or "ta-kill-ya".  No offense to you tequila connoisseurs, but I say it's the latter(I'm a scotch and whiskey kind of guy).  I also know - to each their own and I want to know where you stand.  p.s.- Since the iPhone case is such a specific prize, and not everyone may need that, please also include "iPhone- yes" or "iPhone-no" in your comment.  That way we will know and send it to an appropriate winner.  Thanks!

CONTACT INFO: If you win, we need to contact you. With your comment you must include your email address.  Entries are only valid with this information!  You can break it up to avoid spammers(i.e. skulladayfan AT skulladay dot com).


WHERE TO ENTER: All entries must be made on this blog post, on Skull-A-Day.com. You CANNOT enter this contest by commenting on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.


CONTEST CLOSES: 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time Friday, November 1st.


NUMBER OF WINNERS: Four (4)

PRIZE SHIPS: To skull lovers across N. America.  Sorry to those overseas.


IF YOU DON'T WIN: You can visit Case Del Barco yourself if you are in the Richmond, VA area. Check out their site to find out more on where to find them and about what's happening at Richmond’s premiere dining destination for upscale Mexican cuisine, waterfront dining and a one-of-a-kind tequila bar. Thanks to Casa Del Barco for these awesome giveaways and The Flores Shop for designing them!

It's "tequila" now....but dang, it has to be the GOOD stuff. I have a very fuzzy memory of the "Ta-Kill-Ya" in Cozumel...where my Sis-In-Law and I demonstrated that there is an ENTIRE industry dedicated to getting the drunk Americans back on the cruise ship....wouldn't touch the stuff for the longest time after that.

iPhone-No.

Pint glasses and flask are awesome, though. :)

Not necessarily "ta-kill-ya," more like "ta-kill-someone-else." I'm normally a happy drunk, but tequila makes me wanna fight people. That flask would be killer for my whiskey, however.
