Those of you familiar with Bristol Magazine's restaurant review feature, authored by local culinary expert, Fred King, you know that it's about time to announce the winners of this year's "Heck Yeah, I Want to Chow Down with My Hero, Fred" contest.  So, without further ado (insert drumroll here).

This year's winners of the "Heck Yeah, I Want to Chow Down With My Hero, Fred" contest are Joe and Mindy Watkins of Laurelville, Ohio; Ray and Tina Straiton of South Paris, Maine and Doug and Diane Awana of Aiea, Hawaii.  The contest attracted hundreds of entries from almost every state of the union, as fan's vied for a truly memorable and once in a lifetime Bristol experience.  

These lucky fans will be swept away for an exciting night on the town hosted by Fred and his wife, Judy.  On Thursday, August 21st, the aforementioned group will travel by limousine to The Troutdale Dining Room in Bristol for a five star feast they will never forget.  But that's not all.  At the end of the evening each person in the  party will receive a specially prepared gift bag loaded with over $250 worth of BMS merchandise and gear.   To cap off this truly unique experience, each winning couple will receive pit passes allowing them access to the infield of the Last Great Coliseum on the afternoon of the IRWIN Tools Night Race. Pretty neat, huh?

Want to get in on the fun for next year?  Make sure you catch Fred's reviews in each issue of the Bristol Magazine.  He'll tell you everything you need to know to enter for 2015.  Thanks to everyone who entered this year's contest.
