Falls Taste Tour: Eat, Instagram, win stuff (repeat)

Let me start off by saying ‘I’m jealous.’

I’m jealous because starting Nov. 1 Argus Leader Media is launching The Falls Taste Tour, a two-month contest centered around eating out in Sioux Falls, and I can’t participate. Well, that’s not exactly true. I’m 100% sure I’ll be participating, but equally certain I’m not allowed to win any prizes (which include an unlocked iPhone 5).

But you can! Here’s how: 1. Eat at one of the participating restaurants. 2. Snap a photo of your meal and upload to Instagram with the hashtag #fallstastetour . 3. Sit back and wait/hope for the prizes to start rolling in. Repeat as often as you want chances to win.

Each photo enters you to win the iPhone5 (or $500 cash) or $400 worth of gift certificates to participating restaurants. We’ll also be giving out weekly prizes of $25 gift cards.

Eight local restaurants make this initial tour (we hope to do more), and I think you’ll find some favorites here. I know some of mine are: Parker’s Bistro, Carnaval Brazilian Grill, Minervas, Falls Landing, Red Rossa, Casa Del Rey, Grille 26 and Phillips Avenue Diner.

I love this contest, because it combines three of my favorite things: eating, photography and winning stuff. I’ll bet you like these things too, so good luck.

And make sure to let me know what you think of the contest, and how your eats were. I’ll be posting some of the cooler pictures and whatnot here on the blog as well.

Oh, and did I mention you can win an iPhone 5?
