We like contests. Even more so, we like travel contests. When these contests are coupled with fashion, we've died and gone to heaven. Now that may be a little dramatic, but we really do like a contest that includes business class travel instead of the usual economy roundtrip. This time, the goods come from Air France and the grand prize includes not only biz class tickets to Paris, but also a hotel stay at a Sofitel and an entirely new wardrobe from Barneys, all wrapped up in the cuteness of Disney.
The contest can be found on Air France's US Facebook page and involves very little effort, but will bring a few smiles and giggles. Just head on over to the fan page and give them the thumbs-up and click over to the Electric Holiday Sweepstakes. Once there, all you need to do is watch the short cartoon featuring Minnie Mouse and various other fashion icons, then type in your details at the end.
Our flourless chocolate cake with walnut ice cream
It's not every night that you get to sneak through a closed luxury department store after hours, to take a private elevator to its top floor for a sumptuous meal, but it is your night if you're heading to Fred's Restaurant at Barneys in Chicago. This gourmet eatery, perched about eight stories above the active Rush Street and just off of the luxury boutiques that line Oak Street, is the Chicago version of Manhattan's original Barneys and its Fred's, but the difference is that the Chicago one is newer, having just celebrated its one-year anniversary in a stunning building.
Fred's is a must-visit foodie destination in Chicago, and like all the best places, it seems a sweet secret, hidden away as it is on the top floor of the store, yet open later than shopping hours. We stopped in for a meal with friends recently and spent way too much money on way too many choices off the menu, but then how could we resist a filet mignon with lobster risotto and flourless chocolate cake with walnut ice cream? We couldn't!
Now, about that 'luxury pizza'...
