Congrats to winner: MochaDad
In my Outback Steakhouse is for Serious Foodies (Like Me!) post, I mentioned that I would be giving one of you my $100 Outback gift card. (I took my husband to Outback for the Fourth of July so he’s over not wanting me to give it away.)
Normally, $100 is not a whole lot of money for dining – it just about covers a family of four. However, Outback’s new menu offers 15 meals under $15, starting at $9.95 – with a steak meal for only $9.95. That started me to thinking…
The gift card winner could feasibly take their family of four out to dinner (15 x 4 = $60) AND still have money left over to take one or two other people out along with them! It would probably even be less because Outback’s menu for kids under 10 is priced from $4 – $7. (You could use the extra to share Outback’s famous “Bloomin’ Onion” appetizer or their scrumptious “Chocolate Thunder From Down Under” dessert.)
So, I’m doing something a little different with this giveaway. The gift card is not just for you. It is also for the person whom you are going to treat to dinner with it. Who do you know that “deserves” a steak (or shrimp, lobster, ribs, chicken, lamb, etc.) dinner?
-Is it an amazing single mom and her kid?
-Is it the friend or family member who watches your kids for you but will never let you pay them?
-Is it a teacher that went above and beyond the call of duty for your child?
-Is it just someone who’s down on their luck due to the impact of the recession?
I could go on and on about the different types of people who inspire me personally, but I won’t. Rather, I’ll let you do so.
To win the $100 gift card, please let me know whom you would treat to an Outback Steakhouse dinner and why in the “Comments” section below by July 31st.
