If you have ever dreamed of a whole night in Taco Bell - it could become a reality

Unlike Hamlet’s castle or a Brooklyn record store, spending a night in a Canadian Taco Bell may not be a long-held dream for many travellers – but it will still become a reality for four people through a new Airbnb contest.

To launch the fast food chain’s latest culinary creation, the winner of the competition and three friends will spend the night of 17 October in Chatham, Ontario – a southern Canadian town near the US border. The four guests will get to hang out in the fast food shop and sleep in bunkbeds. If you’re wondering what they can do to pass the time, they will be feasting on the new “Steak Doubledillas” creation, while playing games, watching TV, movies and hanging out.

There will even be a Taco Bell Butler to take care of the guests during their stay. There are a few rules for whoever spends the night, including: “if sharing salsa, no double dipping your chips”; and “eating Steak Doubledillas in bed is not only allowed, but encouraged”. However, the night of fast food and TV is only for open to legal residents of Canada. Entrants will have to answer the question: “why do you want to take a SteakCation? Tell us why you think it would be awesome to spend the night at a Taco Bell”.

While the fast-food vacation may appeal to some tastes, Airbnb has recently partnered on a variety of competitions for unique nights out, including a recent competition for someone to spend a night at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
