We don’t normally participate in promotional type stuff here on OTB. But I’m willing to make an exception for companies who will trade delicious recipes and exclusive content for a little bit of sell-out. And if the person I’m selling out for happens to be a friend of the site, all the better.

OTB friend Ted Allen, best known for his “Food Guy” expertise on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and his judging on Top Chef and Iron Chef America, is part of an Alltel Wireless promotion and sweepstakes where you can win a vacation getaway with a group of your friends and a specially prepared dinner by Ted. I’ll share the specifics, and then we’ll get right to the food.

Ted Allen of Bravo’s Top Chef and Iron Chef America has teamed with Alltel Wireless for the “My Circle Reunion” promotion. Alltel’s grand prize winner will enjoy a getaway with their ‘Circle’ of 10 family and friends at their choice of vacation hot spots: Key West, Palm Springs or Las Vegas. Ted will join the grand prize winner and guests during their vacation where he’ll mix and mingle with the group before preparing a special meal for them.

Through May 31, 2008, “My Circle” subscribers can enter by texting CIRCLE to 102102 or visiting http://www.alltel.com/circlereunion; new customers who sign up before May 31 are also eligible to win the reunion prize package.

Win a vacation and dinner with Ted Allen and your own Circle of Friends on the Alltel Wireless site.
