Free ThinkFest Tickets: Prove Your Genius

As we mentioned yesterday, Philadelphia magazine’s ThinkFest is coming to town on November 30 and December 1 and with it, we’re bringing together some of the finest minds in the Philly food scene to talk about the past, the present and the future of food in Philadelphia.

We’ve got Stephen Starr coming in as our keynote speaker on Friday night, offering a candid interview about his years in the restaurant industry. On Saturday, Bill Covaleski and Tom Kehoe–the owners of Victory Brewing and Yards Brewing–will be talking about beer in Philadelphia. And then, later the same day, Aimee Olexy, Michael Solomonov, Brad Spence and Marcie Turney will be sitting down to talk about Philadelphia’s evolving food scene. All of these people are innovators. All of them bring big ideas to the city. All of them put their names, their money and their reputations on the line to make Philly the food town it is.

And we want to send you to the event for free. All you have to do to score a pair of tickets? Have one really good idea for the future of food in Philly…

So here’s the deal. You think you know what Philadelphia’s food scene really needs? Now’s the time to speak up. We’re gathering some of the brightest minds in Philly food and drink together for Philadelphia magazine’s ThinkFest, and we want the smartest and most forward-thinking Foobooz readers to go for free.

In order to win the free tickets, just tell us your big food idea. And we’re not talking about something small like complaining that the city doesn’t have enough good Thai food. No, we want something broader, more fundamental. We want to know what you would do to make the city’s restaurant scene stronger, deeper, better than it is right now.

All big ideas go in the comments section below. And you’ve got until Thursday, November 15 to come up with something awesome. We’ll announce the winner (or winners) on Friday.

Got it? Good. Now let’s see what you’ve got.
