We're at that time of year when birds start making fall plans, pumpkin spice begins to find its way back into our lives, and Olive Garden sells the Never Ending Pasta Pass! Only this time, they are kicking it up many notches.

According to Olive Garden, "(We're)...removing the limits on “never-ending” this year with the return of its Never Ending Pasta Pass and the introduction of the first-of-its-kind Lifetime Pasta Pass. The Lifetime Pasta Pass includes a lifetime of unlimited servings of guests’ favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks."

Holy wow!  You can buy one of the 24k Never Ending Pasta passes for $100 as usual (plus tax, as usual). As soon as you buy that pass, you'll have the chance to compete for one of 50 Lifetime Pasta Passes. The upgrade'll cost you $400, so in total, you'll spend $500 IF you get the Lifetime Pass. FYI: The tradition pasta pass is good for 9 weeks this year.

The pass sale starts Thursday at 1 PM Central, 2 PM Eastern. 

There's an online waiting room you can hit up at 12:55. Just click HERE today.
