As most of you know, Penzeys Spices is an extraordinary chowhound resource. They carry a wide variety of spices from around the world, in good shape and at reasonable prices. But the shipping can kill you if all you need is some of their ground Vietnamese cinnamon, so deliciously potent that even a sniff fills your mouth with the taste.
Penzeys is running a contest to decide where to place a new store. The metro area which sends the most postcards begging for one will get one. A few months ago I solicited your help in making sure that we would get a Penzeys. Many of you let me know your postcards had been sent.
The summer 2004 Penzeys catalog arrived and Washington DC is in the top 20 contenders for the store. But that leaves 19 other competitors out there to beat.
It's time to spread the word to our friends, neighbors, and co-workers. The link to the contest rules is below.
If you have ever received any benefit from reading this board, now is the time to give a little payback to the chowhounds of the Baltimore-DC metroplex who have shared their culinary experiences, good and bad. Help us get a Penzeys. No more stale spices.
