Olive Garden is indicating on Facebook the pasta pass will go live on Aug 15th, about 2pm ET. Hinting at some prizes as well.
The Facebook postings so far indicate 24,000 regular, and 50 lifetime passes. There is not a To Go option this year.
There is an email address and a number to text in their facebook post (on computer screen).
Perhaps they will send out the link for the pass sale or prize give away to people that have responded. But this is just a guess on my part.
There is a lot of speculation about the term of this year's passes. Suggest collecting in wiki as those details are confirmed.
Once live, those getting in for the $100 pasta pass can check the box for a chance to be offered an opportunity to upgrade their pass to one of the 50 lifetime passes for an additional $400 + tax. OG will start emailing the lifetime pass offers on the 16th, to people who bought one of the pasta passes on the 15th. Passholders will have 48 hours from the time the email is delivered to complete their upgrade.
Update: This page offers useful information including a tips on how to score video, and link to pastapass url. Room opens 5 minutes before sale goes live. https://www.olivegarden.com/speci...fe7757d127
