Many of you will no doubt be spending Memorial Day in a backyard somewhere -- maybe not even your own -- grilling and barbecuing the day away.
And since you're already going to be doing both of these activities, we want you to snap a photo of your festivities and send it in to us at hpcontest at houstonpress.com. We're holding a contest over Memorial Day Weekend to see who has the grandest grill set-up (or the baddest barbecue pit) and who has the most tantalizing tablescape.
A $50 gift card to Randall's, to stock up on more supplies for your next big party, will be awarded to the person who sends in the best grilling or barbecuing photo.
And another $50 gift card to Randall's will be awarded to the person who sends in the best photo of their Memorial Day dining or party setup.
Even if you don't win one of our grand prizes, your photos will be featured in our Memorial Day slideshow on Tuesday. Winners will also be announced on Tuesday, so make sure your photos are in to hpcontest at houstonpress.com by 6 p.m. on Monday, May 30.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
