How 'bout those Vikings?
If you're one of those people who wouldn't know a safety from a saute pan, or if you've already given up on the local team, you can still get in on the action. Crave has recently launched its Fantasy CraveBall, a fantasy football-like competition geared toward foodies instead of sports fans.[jump]
Each week, contestants choose the menu item they think will be the week's best seller in each of five categories: beverage, appetizer, entree, sushi, and dessert. Correct picks earn points leading up to the final "CraveBowl."
The prizes are more functional than a Super Bowl ring. The contest's grand prize winner will receive a two-year lease on a 2012 Range Rover Evoque from Jaguar/Land Rover/Range Rover of Minneapolis. The second-place winner receives the "Ultimate Wedding Package," which includes a $5,000 shopping spree at Wedding Day Diamonds and a $5,000 catered event by Crave Catering. The third-place winner receives a Mexican getaway for two, including airfare and hotel accommodations, courtesy of Sun Country Airlines.
Weekly prizes include reVamp! Salon & Spa packages, month-long Lifetime Fitness memberships, plane tickets from Sun Country, and $100 CRAVE and Sopranos gift cards.
