Giveaway Time: Four course whiskey-paired dinner for two at Villa Sorriso on Wednesday, March 24

The early bird may get the worm, but a lucky last-minute meal planner can score a free four-course dinner for two (a $120 value,) with each course paired with a different Jack Daniels whiskey*, at Villa Sorriso on Wed., March 24, 6:30 p.m.

Here's the menu planned for that evening:

First Course
Roasted pear wrapped with proscuitto and sage
paired with Original Old No. 7

Second Course
Baby spring greens medley with dried cranberries, toasted pine nuts, aged balsamic vinaigrette and caramelized goat cheese
paired with Gentleman Jack

Main Course (two choices)
Grilled filet mignon topped with demi-glace alongside gratin potatoes, baby vegetables and caramelized onion-gorgonzola tart
John Dory filet w lobster sauce, herbed risotto and baby vegetables
both paired with Jack Daniel's Single-Barrel

Warm bread pudding with bananas and pecans and a Jack Daniels whiskey sauce
paired with Woodford Reserve

To enter:
1) leave a comment here with your name, twitter username and e-mail address
2) Tweet "I want to win @LAOCFoodie's four-course Jack Daniels-paired dinner for two at Villa Sorriso!"

I'll randomly draw the winner on Tuesday evening around 6 p.m.; if the winner doesn't respond by Wednesday noon, another lucky person will be chosen.

And in case you didn't win, but still want to go -- the paired-dinner is $60/person and you can RSVP by calling 626.793.2233.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Amber Bechtel (@ambiggity) for winning this giveaway, everyone else, thanks for reading and playing and keep your eyes peeled for more giveaways in the future!

*I would link to the individual J.D. whiskeys offered, but their Website has an odd linking policy that reads like I cannot link beyond their opening page. So, if you wish to find out more about the less-common Gentleman Jack and Single-Barrel varieties, just go to their homepage, confirm your age, and go to their "Family of Blends" section.
