Win a Foie Gras Lunch in Napa By Writing an Essay Protesting the Ban

Foie gras: You know you miss it. - FLICKR/FOFIE57

Here's an essay contest you can really sink your teeth into, even if you haven't written one since you applied to college. Napa restaurant La Toque is hosting a lunch called "The State of Foie Gras" next month to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the ban on foie, reports Inside Scoop. And you're invited, provided you write one of the 25 winning essays on "Why California's Foie Gras Ban is Foolish."

You can pen your ode to the good stuff (100 words or less) on the restaurant's Facebook page or send directly to if you want to keep your ardor a secret.

The lunch is July 5, and its 25 lucky winners will be chosen by owner Ken Frank on July 1. And in case you're worried, the multi-course, foie-centric meal is legal -- you won't be buying the banned liver, see -- and will be cooked by chef luminaries from around the Bay Area.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
