We asked you to show us your wine cellars, you responded! We drew randomly from people who sent us pictures or posted pictures on Facebook of their wine cellars in any way, shape or form and the winner was ... BILL AND MARGARET MACDONALD! Bill and Margaret, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your two tickets to the Aug. 3 Paella in the Park event in Traverse City, courtesy of Porterhouse Productions!
Everyone else, read on for more info about the event and how you can get tickets of your own!
Through our "Show Us Your Cellar" contest, we'll swap you: You send us a photo of your cellar, along with a few sentences about its contents (we'd love to know how much of it is Michigan!), and we'll give you a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Aug. 3 Paella in the Park event in Traverse City, courtesy of Porterhouse Productions! Read on for details and how you can get tickets to the celebration even if you're not our lucky winner...
