Giveaway: A Pair of Tickets to the Dallas Travel & Adventure Show

Every year, the Dallas Travel & Adventure Show blows by at the Dallas Convention Center, bringing you a taste of foreign and exotic places to visit. It’s probably one of the most torturous expos for people with very few vacation days left in 2012, but fun for those who have time to spare. Last year, I watched a Fiery Foods Challenge and the winner of a cooking competition earn two tickets for a Yucatan vacation. Dang. Friends, this could be your chance to get away. I bet you’re already eyeing that two-night stay at Pearl South Padre Resort, which the Travel & Adventure Show is giving away as a door prize this year. The whole shebang runs from November 10-11 at the Dallas Convention Center.

To win a free pair of tickets, just follow the simple instructions down below. I’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday, 11/7, at noon.
