Win a weekend in cafe society
Answer a few simple questions, and you could win a holiday for two in one of the coffee capitals of Europe
Saturday 27 June 1998
Today and for each of the next two Saturdays, we will be offering a great weekend for two. You will receive a return flight from London (Eurostar in the case of Paris); transfers to a three-star hotel, where you receive two nights' bed-and-breakfast accommodation; pounds 100 in spending money; and an all-important copy of the Guide. Twenty-five runners up will receive a copy of the book, which retails at pounds 12.99. If you are unlucky this time around, you can buy a copy at a special price of pounds 9.99, including postage and packing; just call our hotline on 01582 842112.
Today's destination is Paris; the next two venues will be Madrid and Venice. Just answer these three questions, complete the tie-break and send your entry to Paris, Cafe Creme Guide to the Cafes of Europe Competition, PO Box 4013, London E14 5DE. You are allowed to enter each of the subsequent competitions if you wish. The deadline for all entries is 17 July 1998.
