Artists and foodies unite for the 2nd Annual Eat LBC and Long Beach Restaurant Week tote bag competition. Organizers are looking for local artists to design the 2015 signature tote bag, to be distributed before and during Long Beach Restaurant Week on March 22 through 28, 2015. The deadline to enter is December 31 and all submissions must be sent to [email protected].

The winner, chosen by the Eat LBC founders, will receive $200 in gift cards to some of Long Beach’s best restaurants along with 20 tote bags to give to family, friends and fans and last, but not least, a pair of VIP tickets to Eat LBC’s Launch Party in March. The winning tote bag will be distributed to guests attending the Eat LBC Launch Party as well as delivered to members of the media, local tastemakers and participating restaurants and sponsors.
