Olive Garden ups ante on popular never-ending pasta pass

Posted September 14, 2017

Olive Garden says it sold 21,000 passes in one second a year ago.

Last year, 21,000 of Olive Garden's never-ending pasta pass were sold in one second and that chance to eat as much pasta as possible for eight weeks returns 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. While that's wonderful, the food chain is offering something even better this year: Pasta Passports to Italy. Pasta Passes and Pasta Passports are limited to one per customer per transaction. Fifty lucky customers can claim as Passport for $200, which will entitle each to the Never Ending Pasta promotion AND an eight-day/seven-night trip to Italy for two from April 7-14, 2018 that includes airfare, ground transportation, hotel, meals and daily activities. The restaurant chain claims that previous year, all 21,000 cards - which entitles the holder to unlimited pasta for eight weeks - sold out in one second. You, your guest, and the other 49 pairs will start in Siena before heading to Florence, Rome, Vatican City, and more.

How Canelo-GGG could unfold
Golovkin, 35, is the older fighter between the two middleweights, but 27-year-old Alvarez has the edge in experience. The Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin press conference is brought to you by FITE TV and can be streamed below.

Olive Garden is selling 22,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes and 50 Pasta Passports to Italy.

The pasta passes will give recipients access to the "Never Ending Pasta Bowl" from September 25 to November 19. The passes are only available for 30 minutes and they'll likely be gone quicker than that.
