On Tuesday morning, as I got ready to conk out after the end of another night shift at the hospital, I lazily scanned my Twitter feed one last time with eyes half shut. All of a sudden, I spied this shocker:

I almost knocked the amber goggles off my face as I frantically texted the happy surprise to Henry. This was completely unexpected, as we hadn’t even submitted our app for consideration. (I’m guessing our developer did. If so, thank you, Y Media Labs!)
We’re grateful, giddy, and humbled that our iPad app has been recognized with a nomination for what the New York Times has called “the Internet’s highest official honor for excellence.” (And besides: any awards ceremony that limits acceptance speeches to only five words is a winner in my book.)
Please vote for Nom Nom Paleo (if you haven’t already) by clicking here! And thank you for continuing to support our little mom ’n pop operation—we couldn’t do this without you!
To celebrate our Webby nomination, Henry and I feel like partying it up. In fact, we want to feast with a small group of awesome Nomsters like you in San Francisco. Sound like fun? Then you’re going to want to enter my latest giveaway!
Here’s the deal: the fine folks at Disqus (you know—the company that powers the comments on this site and many others!) have offered to throw a fun soirée for 20 lucky Nom Nom Paleo readers (plus me and Henry) on the evening of Saturday, May 10th, at the drop-dead gorgeous Cookhouse kitchen loft in San Francisco!
There, we can mix, mingle, and share a delicious Paleo dinner in a cozy spot reserved just for us.
Each of the 20 winners of this giveaway will score:
- A private invitation to our catered, intimate, family-style Paleo dinner inspired by recipes in my cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans. Our dinner party will be held at the Cookhouse—one of the finest private event venues in San Francisco’s historic North Beach neighborhood! (Wanna see the Cookhouse in action? Check out this episode of Moveable Feast, hosted by our pal Pete Evans!)
- A copy of our cookbook that’ll we’ll personally deface with our signatures that night!
- A Nom Nom Paleo swag bag containing a limited edition Nom Nom Paleo action figure and a pair of super-duper Nom Nom Paleo knee-high socks!
- A chance to hang out for hours with us and a bunch of other like-minded cave-people!
(Note: winners can pick up their cookbook and swag bag goodies only at the dinner party—we won’t be able to send them to you. So before entering, please make sure you can actually make it to the feast!)
I don’t know about you, but this sounds like a butt-kicking way to spend a Saturday night. If you can find a way to get yourself to and from this unique event, click the button below (or hit this link) to enter this giveaway!
Hurry—space is limited, and there are only 20 spots up for grabs! Plus, this giveaway ends at 8 p.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, April 15, 2014—so enter now, and please be sure to enter your email address so that we can contact you if you win. Good luck!
[UPDATE: Just to be clear, we have room for only 20 guests/winners at the dinner party, so unfortunately, we won’t be able to accommodate plus-ones (unless they also happen to win!).]
