HOORAY! We are delighted to be reunited anew with our friends at Piper-Heidsieck, purveyors of our very favorite Champagne — and which just happens to also be the official Champagne of the Oscars! (The official bottle for the Oscars this year is very classic).  Thanks to them, we’re giving away a gift card for this extremely adorable situation: A bottle of Piper-Heidsieck Cuvee Brut, two Champagne flutes and a red travel case in which to carry it all. Yes, it’s a purse for your Champagne, which is obviously something you need in your life.

THE TASK:  As always, I will pick the winner at random — I’ve got just one this time, so cross your fingers. To keep it fun, please comment and tell us who you’d bring to the Oscars as a date, living or dead. (It can be a romantic date, a friend date, a SPITE DATE. It’s up to you.)

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you.  (Winners must be 21 or over.  Contest open only to US residents, but residents of UT, DE, AL, MS, KY, SD, MT and ME are unfortunately not eligible. Prize courtesy of Piper-Heidsieck.)
