Enter this SMEG fridge giveaway and toast your luck with a Chill Cowboy cocktail.
Travel’s out, but dreaming about travel is definitely still very in. To help remember what it’s like at its retro-inspired court hotels like Lone Star Court in Austin, Cavalry Court in College Station, Texican Court in Irving, and Cotton Court in Lubbock, the Texas-based Valencia Hotel Group is giving away a cool SMEG fridge, just like the ones found at its properties, stocked with essentials.
Anyone 21 or over can enter the “Holiday SMEG-Away” and the contest goes until December 14; the grand-prize winner of the fridge (and four runners-up, who each get a free one-night stay at a Court hotel property) will be announced December 15. To put your name in the 10-gallon hat, just click here and fill out the form. If you win, you can even choose the color of your new fridge.
In the meantime, let’s chill ourselves out with a cocktail or two and toast to a speedy end to this trying year. Hey, 2020, don’t let the door hit ya.
