Hi all! We are on the countdown to FBC2013 this week - only a few more days before we all meet up at Hockley Valley Resort.  This week's new is going to be short and sweet because we're busy running around doing last minute bits n bobs.

We have a great restaurant roundup for you this week on Wednesday and we'll be doing a recap of some of our Featured Members on Friday but next week it's going to be a little quiet around here.  The three of us are going to take a well-deserved week off to catch our breath, recap, take stock and start planning some more awesome stuff for all of you.

How About Some Winners?

First though, we have some winners to announce!

First up is the winner of our monthly prize of Janes Family Foods vouchers, given to one randomly drawn winner from our membership!  This month, the winner is member #460: Marian from Sweetopia!  Way to go Marian and Melissa will personally deliver your vouchers to you at FBC2013 this week!

Next up is the first winner of our Arla foods vouchers.  Every month, Arla sponsors our Featured Blogger of the week post and each month, one of the previous month's Featured Bloggers (chosen at random) will win $25 worth of Arla vouchers, redeemable for any Tre Stelle, Castello, Defino or Apetina cheese products.  Our March winner is Laura from An Uneducated Palate (#5 in our draw!).  Melissa will be in touch shortly for your mailing details Laura.

Congratulations to you both!

Eat St Cookbook

You weren't one of our two lucky winners already announced this morning?  That's ok - we have another opportunity for you to win - with a copy of the new Eat St. Cookbook.  Just log-in and go to our special Members Only post and leave us a comment letting us know what your favourite street food is.  Easy peasy - just like that you're entered to win!
