Who doesn’t love tamales? Especially at this time of year. Tamales are like chips…you can’t eat just one! That’s why I’m so excited about ‘¡Tamales! at Pearl’. If you think your family has the best tamales in town, then you have to enter this contest! Three $1,000 prizes will be awarded in the ‘Best Tamales in San Antonio’ contest at the incredible Pearl on December 11th.
The three categories are: Best Chicken Tamal, Best Pork Tamal and Wild Card/Unique Tamal. In addition to the $1,000 prize, four additional finalists in each category will win $100 HEB gift cards.
So if you are thinking about entering the contest, the deadline is coming up: it’s Monday, November 22nd. Registration forms can be downloaded from www.tamalesatpearl.com — but the forms must be received by 5pm on the 22nd at the Pearl Administrative Office in the Full Goods Building, 200 E. Grayson, Suite 210. So hurry!
And if you love to eat tamales – make sure you come to the big event on December 11th! This will be a big festival for the entire family…celebrating this wonderful San Antonio tradition. Vendors will be selling lots of different tamales, tacos and dessert items. Come down for the fun, and check out the fabulous Pearl! There will be a suggested $5 donation at the gate for the event, with proceeds going to the San Antonio Food Bank.
