Passport to Puerto Vallarta

That's sunny* Puerto Vallarta pictured above, a tantalizing image on this rainy, dreary morning. But you don't have to just daydream, because Rosa Mexicano is giving away a three-night trip to the Mexican resort town as part of its Puerto Vallarta Gourmet Getaway festival.

Here's the deal: Head to the Penn Quarter restaurant from Sept. 7-16 and dine on chef James Muir's regional specialties from Puerto Vallarta, like huachinango Vallarta (red snapper with palm green herbs sauce, sautéed spinach and hoja santa) and CocoChoco (bittersweet chocolate covered coconut parfait). While you're there, fill out an entry form for the trip.

If you're so lucky as to win, you'll get airfare and luxurious accommodations for three nights for two people and dinner for two at the celebrated Los Xitomates restaurant.

*Nevermind that Puerto Vallarta has its very own hurricane passing through right now. I'm sure it will be gone by the time you win the trip.
