Everybody loves a good contest. Heck, when we gave away free salad coupons here on Bites, my email box runnethed over within scant minutes. But Bella Napoli Pizzeria
is really putting their money where the pie goes with their "Ciao Italia Sweepstakes." For all of June, July and August, every $20 you spend toward a meal at the Nashville or Cool Springs locations of Bella Napoli will earn you one entry in a drawing for airfare for two to Italy.
Once you get there, you're on your own. But with the way the Italian economy is going, I'm betting you can get some pretty good deals. "200 Euros? But Perluigi, I just want to rent your villa for two weeks. Not buy it."
The winner will be drawn live on Sunday, Sept. 9, but don't expect to win. I intend to cater a tailgater for a high school football team with Bella Napoli pizza, so that should swing the odds in my favor.
