Babalu Gift Card Giveaway!

Okay, I apologize to my readers outside the Mid-South. But I have a giveaway that really only benefits folks who live around these parts. Anyone is welcome to enter, especially if you're planning a trip to Memphis, Birmingham, or Jackson, Mississippi soon. But if you don't plan to visit these Southern cities, you might not be interested in this.

But for my Southern readers, this is a sweet deal! After I posted about our awesome time at Babalu Tacos & Tapas for Vegan Drinks last week, the folks from this new regional tapas chain contacted me and asked if I'd like to give two $25 gift cards away to my readers. Well, yea! Of course!

The cards will work at any Babalu location. The new one is in Memphis in Overton Square at 2115 Madison, but the original Babalu is located in Jackson, Mississippi. And in September, the third Babalu location will be opening in Birmingham, Alabama. Babalu has fantastic Vegetal Tacos with mushrooms, squash, radishes, arugula, and chipotle vinaigrette.


They also serve Tableside Guacamole! And there's a Blackeyed Pea Hummus, several veggie tapas dishes (inquire about vegan-ness), Sweet Potato Fries, and loads of fancy cocktails. My fave is the TC Tea (sweet tea vodka, mint, lemon, powdered sugar, and sprite).


Vegans, be aware that their sour mix does contain eggs, but they're happy to sub lemonade in any cocktail that calls for sour mix. I sampled one drink with the lemonade substitution, and you couldn't tell that it was missing the sour mix. The lemonade has the same effect.

Anyway, if you'd like to win one of two gift cards for Babalu, leave me a comment here! And please make sure you include an EMAIL ADDRESS in your comment! If I don't have a way to contact you, I can't tell you if you've won! I'll randomly select a winner on Thursday night. Good luck!

I lived in Jackson when the original Babalu opened. When I decided to move back to my hometown of Birmingham, I thought I would have to go without tableside guac and Baba-ritas. Now I'm STOKED Babalu's opening a Birmingham location. Can't wait!
