Don’t be so quick to crumble up those cheesesteak wrappers because for the month of July, Geno’s Steaks is hiding golden tickets in five of them. And don’t worry, if you win, you won’t be getting sucked up into a Cheez Whiz-filled tube (most likely).
What the winner, and a guest, will get is a behind-the-scenes tour of Geno’s, lunch with Geno Vento and a seat at the Phillies vs. Mets game on August 10th.
The tickets will be randomly placed in the wrappers, but if you want to keep track of how many are left, follow #GenosGoldenTicket on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Geno spoke to the idea saying, "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite childhood movies - it brings back so many memories of being a kid in South Philly. I love the idea that my customers love Philly as much as I do. What better way to show them my appreciation?"
And who wouldn't appreciate another incentive to eat cheesesteaks?
