So you didn’t win $600 million dollars in last week’s lottery. Whatever. Money can’t buy happiness. You know what can? Free cupcakes.

To celebrate reaching 2,000 Facebook fans, Southport Grocery & Cafe, 3552 N. Southport Ave., is holding a contest to give away 2,000 cupcakes. The first place winner will receive 1,000 free cupcakes; second and third place can each console themselves with 300 cupcakes; and 20 random entries will score 20 cupcakes each.

While this contest clearly proves that the best things in life are indeed free, that doesn’t mean Southport Grocery isn’t going to make you earn your sweets. To enter to win one of the top three prizes, you’ll need to post to SPG’s Facebook page–on the wall or in the comments section–describing either what you’ll do with all those cupcakes (perhaps share with your favorite local news website editor), a favorite SPG memory or why you love their cupcakes. If you’re a little bashful about sharing this information online–then why are you on Facebook?–simply “like” SPG’s contest posting and you’ll qualify for the random drawing for 20 cupcakes.

Deadline for entries is midnight, April 5.
