Category Contests

It’s not often that my husband and I get to go eat “grown-up food” without the kids, but we do try to manage it every once in a while. A few months back we found ourselves a few towns away, looking for a nice dinner, and we wound up at Bonefish Grill with some trepidation—we’d never been there before.

It was the best meal out we’ve had in a long, long time. If you like seafood, oh my goodness is this the place for you. Sooooo good. And the pomegranate martini I had wasn’t bad, either. Ahem.

Bonefish would like you and your sweetie to come eat there on Valentine’s Day (check the locator to find one near you); if you do, you’ll get complimentary Lindt Excellence chocolate bars with your meal. And if you win this contest, you’ll be able to eat there for free—I’ve got a $45 gift card to give away.

Want to win it and get a great meal at Bonefish? First review the contest rules and regulations and then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, February 8th, 2009. One lucky winner will be chosen at random, and you don’t even have to order the stuffed wolf fish (but I highly recommend it).

Ready? Go!

  309. Never been, but a free dinner would be a good excuse to try it out!

  310. I don’t think we have Bonefish where I live, but it’s one of my mom’s favorite places in Memphis (she’s a California transplant to Tennessee; one can only eat so much barbecue). Hope I win so I can send it to her!

  311. I LOVE trying new resturants with my hubby, and I found one about 5 miles away. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  318. It’d be a bit of a drive, but there are some sacrifices that are worth making ๐Ÿ™‚
