Do y’all remember when we had a contest for a gift card to Bonefish Grill, before? Let’s do it again! In honor of some of their new menu items—wild Gulf shrimp pad Thai, tempura lobster, and diablo shrimp fettuccine (just to name a few)—Bonefish has generously passed along a $45 gift card so that one lucky Want Not reader can go have a nice dinner out with a special someone. (Just remember: I think you’re very special. No pressure to take me with you, but I’m just saying.) Find your local Bonefish by checking here.

Want to win the gift card? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, May 3rd, 2009 to be entered. I’ll use my trusty random number generator to select a winner. And no, you don’t have to have the pomegranate martini. I’m just remembering the one I had there. Wistfully.

Ready? Go!
