Xmas comes early for Mexican foodies in Wellington

100 lucky locals received a free shout from thanks to the kindness of Wellingtonian Miriam Ramos of Miramar.

The Local Love Project invites Kiwis to decide whether they want to give or receive. To enter, people visit, decide if they want to love their locals or keep the cash and then write a list about what they love in their area. Each week one business from a list will be chosen to shout their customers to the value of $1,000, care of the person who nominated them. Another prize of $1,000 will be given to entrants who have decided to keep the cash.

There will be the opportunity to give or receive in the weeks leading up to Xmas by entering here:
