Ultimate Wine Cork Counting Contest Prizes

Wow, it all started with a simple idea for a contest! Guess the number of corks in the big jug by the door, and the one whose guess comes closest, wins a prize from Da Gizz. Here’s the jug (with Biff as a size reference…)

Well, things have just spiraled out of control since then! With over $2,000 in prizes from 22 local merchants, this contest is cooking! And it will all come to fruition on Valentine’s Day, at 3pm with a big blow-out at our own humble abode, Harwich Spirits Shoppe, home of the Two Blogging Cats.

There will be wine and beer tasting, pot luck treats, door prizes for everyone, and the Official Counting of the Corks! All prizes will be distributed, and the decisions of the judge (Da Gizz) will be final.

This event will be streamed live over the internet worldwide. So if you can’t attend in person, at least you can still take part!

Just take a gander at the swag you could scoop up if you enter:

Sooo… If you haven’t guessed the cork count yet, get hopping and leave a comment below with your guess… Valentine’s Day waits for no soul!

Who’d a thought that this was all caused by Ponch and Cisco…
