Free Car!

For some reason, Acura decided to give us a car. No, seriously guys, Acura is GIVING us a new ILX for a week to drive around. They’ve invited us to participate in their blogger campaign, so we’ll be Tweeting and Facebooking our experiences LA Foodie style in the ILX all this week. Hey, your guess is as good as ours, but if they want to give us a car we’re going to use it the only way that we know how: for food. 

We pick it up on Monday, and every day from the 29th to the 4th, we’ll be eating at the drive throughs of Los Angeles. If you see us in an Acura that looks like this: 


Come say “Hi!” We’ll buy you a drive through meal!

We’re not sure that this is the color car that we’re getting, so maybe cautiously approach Acuras in the drive throughs of L.A. this week. If it’s us, we’ll buy you a meal. If it’s not, you should try to get whoever is in that car to buy you a meal! If nothing else it’ll make a great story to tell your grandkids one day.

We need your help, Foodie Faithful! We are going to hit up the best drive-through restaurants that Los Angeles has to offer. Where should we go? What should we eat? What would you do if you had an ILX for a week? The sky’s the limit. Well, I guess we can’t drive the car in the sky. Yet.

We have some pretty good drive-through ideas, but are always looking for more! Click  right now to send us a tweet with your suggestion! We are looking for more awesome drive throughs in the following neighborhoods: Pasadena, Long Beach, Burbank, Anaheim, and North Hollywood.

Some of the places we’ll be visiting include: Langer’s, The Donut Hole, and Lucy’s. We’ll be rating all the places we eat at on a VERY high tech rating system that is not arbitrary at all and includes the categories: Taste, Speed of Service, Digestive Volatility, Car Funk Factor, Handleability, and Coolness Factor. We’ll choose our winner based on these categories and the overall winner will be determined by most important of all factors, the omnipresent Is It Worth The Drive? Is any drive through worth an hour in the car? We’ll find out!


For the record, we tried to get Acura to include the lady pictured above to drive us around this week, but they do not have her contact information so they refused. That’s OK, we guess. Since they’re giving us a free car and all we’ll let it slide. This time.

We’ll be posting our adventures and updating our drive-through rankings here all week. We want to fun it up and hit all the best places, so send us a tweet! Post something for us on Facebook!

Agree with us? Disagree with us? Let us hear it! We’d love to have your feedback. 

AND the cool part is there’s a chance that you can win stuff, too! That’s right, the more you engage, the better the chance that you could win something! If you want it, have at it! Acura will be giving away gift cards, and we’ll be giving away L.A. Foodie “I Burger LA” T-shirts! Some of you may even win your own week to drive an ILX! It all depends on how much you show your love.

Get excited and get involved! We’re looking forward to fun this week and hope you are, too!
