The winner can pick up their gift certificate for a Party Packs (value $64.99) at Nando’s at 828 Davie Street (at Howe) in Downtown Vancouver. I will draw a winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm on Thursday, December 19, 2019.

About Nando’s: Nando’s was hatched in South Africa in 1987 when Fernando Duarte invited his friend Robbie Brozin to a humble Portuguese eatery in the heart of Rosettenville, South Africa to try some mouth-watering PERi-PERi marinated and basted chicken. It wasn’t just the best chicken Robbie had ever tasted; it was love at first bite! The rest, as they say, is history.

UPDATE the winner is Jessica!

About Axel

Axel, a young graphic artist and musician, dives into his hand drawn universe as he falls in love with the captivating Lei. Together they jet off on a fast-moving quest to retrieve the stolen light from the super villain Vï.  In this epic fantasy, graphic art and music intertwine to create the supercharged world of Axel. 

The music serves as a narrative thread guiding characters and audiences as they journey with Axel and Lei to discover that true love shines even brighter that the most radiant star. Inspired by the atmosphere of big arena concerts, Axel is a high-energy and exhilarating experience where acrobatic and skating performances are supported by pop music, visual effects, lighting and laser show.
