In honor of the legalization of gay marriage in California, the San Diego Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is sponsoring an essay contest for same-sex couples who would like to wed and honeymoon in the city.
The prize? An all-expense paid trip to San Diego, including tickets for two to a number of high-end restaurants, theatres, spas and other attractions, such as Fashion Week San Diego and a wine, chocolate and cheese tasting at the Lodge at Torres Pines. And, of course, a marriage license.
To enter the contest, individuals should write a short story (of no more than 250 words) explaining why they and their partner should win a San Diego wedding. The contest is open to all U.S. citizens and their partners age 25 and older and will run until Aug. 1.
To enter online visit sandiego.org/PRIDEtobe. A full list of rules and regulations is available at sandiego.org/article/Visitors/1066.
The prize list includes round-trip air fare for two, a five night stay at Hotel Solamar and dinners for two at KemoSabe, Jsix at Hotel Solamar, 1500 Ocean at Hotel del Coronado, AR Valentien at the Lodge at Torres Pines and JRDN at Tower 23. Theatre tickets to The Old Globe and Diversionary Theatre, passports to Balboa Park and tickets to Fashion Week San Diego and an 80 minute couples massage at Spa Velia are also included.
