In honor of its upcoming 40th anniversary, Bristol Bar & Grille will hold a raffle for a chance to win free green chili wontons for an entire year. A $572 value, the winner will get one order of eight wontons per week in 2018. This signature dish – cheese and green chilis wrapped in a wonton wrapper, fried and served with a side of guacamole –  has been on the Bristol’s menu since the restaurant first opened in 1977.

Starting today, Wednesday, June 21,  anyone can enter the raffle by eating at any of the four Bristol locations: 1321 Bardstown Rd; Bristol Downtown, 614 W. Main St.; Bristol Jeffersonville, 700 W. Riverside Dr.; and Bristol East 300 N. Hurstbourne Pkwy. Diners will receive a raffle ticket with their check. Guests are limited to three entries per day. Bristol will randomly draw one winner Sept. 9 during its 40th anniversary party at Bristol Highlands. For more information, visit

Plans for that 40th anniversary celebration are already under way. The fun on Sept. 9 will include live music from Heidi Howe, Rusty Dimes and the Good Times, the Whiskey Bent Valley Boys and DJ Matt Simons. Goodwood and New Albanian Brewing Company will serve beer while the Frazier Museum and Squallis puppeteers provide entertainment. Cooking demonstrations and a celebrity green chili wonton eating contest are also on the party agenda. The event will free and open to the public. More details will be released later this summer.
