To go along with this meal deal, Mellow Mushroom is hosting a contest for customers to win a trip to Amsterdam for two. All that you need to do is pose with a backdrop in each Mellow of the first Mellow Mushroom location and post it to Instagram with #40YearsBaked or upload that image directly to www.40yearsbaked.com to enter.
