Olive Garden is once again selling its “Never-Ending Pasta Pass,” a $100 pass that is the gateway to unlimited pasta at the restaurant for seven weeks. The passes go on sale at 11 a.m. Pacific time Thursday, September 15.

Last year, Olive Garden released 2,000 of the passes and they sold out within one second (yes, literally) online. Some later showed up on eBay for three times the price.

This year, Olive Garden is selling way more passes – 21,000. But brisk demand is still anticipated.

Would you get online to buy one?

We all know Fresno and surrounding cities LOVE their Olive Garden. My story about a new Olive Garden coming to the shopping center near Herndon and Highway 99 sat on our top read list for days. Days!

The link to buy passes is www.OliveGarden.com/PastaPass. The passes are good from Monday, Oct. 3 through Sunday Nov. 20 and give pass holders access to unlimited pasta, homemade sauces, pasta toppings, soup or salad, breadsticks and Coca-Cola drinks.

The fine print is in on Olive Garden’s website.
