Announcement: We have a winner of our Victor Hugo wine dinner contest. Congrats to Sallymander1029, who guessed seventeen - the exact number of times that Aileen saw Les Misérables on Broadway. Sally, we'll send you can e-mail about how you can claim your prize.

On Thursday night, at 7 p.m., the grape-savvy crew at Beast + Bottle, Paul and Aileen Reilly's lovely restaurant in Uptown, is hosting a Victor Hugo wine dinner. The six-course feast, most of which is paired with wines from Victor Hugo Winery, located in the lush landscape of Paso Robles, is $95 per person, but we're giving away two seats to the dinner for free to one Cafe Society reader and a guest.

Flip the page to see how you can win (and view the previous guesses here).

Aileen is a huge admirer of Victor Hugo -- the novelist -- and she's an even bigger fan of Les Misérables, his classic French novel, the stage adaption of which has been playing on-and-off on Broadway, in New York, for decades.

Here's what we want to know: How many times has Aileen seen Les Misérables on Broadway?

The person who comes the closest to the actual number without going over, will win two seats to the dinner, the menu of which is below.

To enter, please include your guess, your name and a valid e-mail address (no e-mail address automatically disqualifies you from winning) in the comments section below. We'll announce the winner at 8 a.m. on Thursday morning. And if you want to purchase seats to the dinner, you can call 303-623-3223.

Wow... 17? Insane. It reminds me of the time I toured with Cats for a summer, selling grilled cheeses outside of the theaters.
