September marks National Potato Month, and whether you like them fried, roasted, mashed, or baked, there aren’t many ways to go wrong when cooking a potato. If you are a spud-lover, this year you could win a chance to celebrate the quirky Potato Month designation with a stay in the Big Idaho Potato Hotel.
McAlister’s Deli, known for its giant, topping-filled potatoes, is throwing The Great Spud Getaway for September. The winner and a friend will receive a four-day, three-night all-expenses-paid trip to Boise, Idaho, to stay in the Big Idaho Potato Hotel, which is a replica of a 6-ton Russet Burbank potato. There, they’ll be able to participate in lots of potato-themed activities, including a ride in the Big Idaho Potato Truck, a 72-foot semitrailer with an enormous 4-ton potato on board. The winner will also receive a year’s supply of free giant spuds from McAlister’s Deli.
