Mimi’s Cafe® Brings Tour De Paris To Life With Trip To Paris, France For Lucky Denver Winner!

IRVINE, Calif. (March 1, 2012) Mimi’s Cafe is making the Tour de Paris a reality for one lucky guest. In celebration of its Tour de Paris menu, Mimi’s Cafe gave away a five-day, four-night trip to Paris, France, along with over 100 other prizes on Facebook. Brittany Fitzgerald, 26, of Denver, Colo. was the grand prize winner and will get to bring one guest along with her.

Miss Fitzgerald found out about the contest while dining at Mimi’s® and entered to win on Mimi’s Facebook page (Facebook.com/MimisCafe). “I was at lunch with my boyfriend’s family at Mimi’s and a card on the table was promoting the contest, she said. “I have never been to France and thought it would be something neat to try, but I never thought I would win.” 

When Miss Fitzgerald was alerted that she was the winner of Mimi’s “Chance for France” giveaway, she was “completely surprised and thrilled!” She is so grateful for Mimi’s Cafe and plans to make the most of her trip to Paris. Brittany will be bringing her mother, Linda Fitzgerald, and is looking forward to a relaxing mother-daughter trip.

In addition to a little “R&R,” Miss Fitzgerald is planning on embracing all the art history Paris has to offer. She was a visual/fine arts major in college and is ecstatic about viewing the French art and culture. 

“I’m excited to see the Eiffel Tower, go to the Louvre and see all the sites. But, I’m really excited to walk around the Latin Quarter and see where Hemmingway, Picasso and famous philosophers hung out.” She was quick to add, “And eat crepes!”

“We’re thrilled to be sending Brittany Fitzgerald and her guest to Paris, as the winner of our ‘Chance for France’ giveaway,” said Mark Mears, Mimi’s President and Chief Concept Officer. “Mimi’s has deep roots in France, which was not only the inspiration for the concept itself, but our unique and inventive taste-tempting Menu, Bakery and Wine offerings that embody what the French are world-renowned for.”

Everyone has a chance to experience a little taste of France at Mimi’s. Mimi’s new seasonal menu, Tour de Burgundy, draws from the hearty “land of wine.” The fixed price menu features bright flavors and savory dishes, such as Quatre Fromages Quiche, Chicken Madeira Crepes, Madeira Mushroom & Swiss Burger, “Soul” Florentine, Chopped Steak Bordelaise and more! Guests can also add a glass of wine or a wine flight to enhance their French-inspired meal.
