Today is a monumental day.
Here at Store Around the Corner, we launched a fun local business giveaway featuring some of our favorite "shops!" Over the next few weeks, all you have to do is...
2) Click on the Local Business Giveaway thumbnail.
3) Register for the Contest. (Don't worry, only your basic info is needed)
4) "Enter" the Contest.
5) After you enter, you'll have the opportunity to share a link to the contest on Facebook, Twitter or email. Each time one of your friends enters the contest (via your special link), your name will be entered in the contest AGAIN (giving you more chances to win those ultra-awesome prizes).
There are three rounds right now (with a couple more on the horizon).
Round 1: Lotsa Lobster - $50 Gift Card (Three Winners)
Now through Sept. 11
Round 2: Lucky Pelican Bistro - $50 Gift Card (Three Winners)
Sept. 12 through Oct. 2
Round 3: K9 Korral - $150 worth of obedience school classes for your pup (One Winner)
Oct. 3 through Oct. 23
You can register for each round, so don't forget to come back and visit us to enter for the other giveaways! And thanks for supporting local businesses in the Sarasota and Manatee county area. You guys all rock.
So, back to that $50 goes a long way thing. If you win $50 to Lotsa Lobster, here are a few things you could get:
* 5 Maine Lobsters, steamed.
* 2 lbs of Cod and 2 lbs of Haddock.
* 1 lb of Chilean Sea Bass and 1.3 lbs of Maine Scallops
* 3 lbs of Florida-caught Black Grouper
* 2.5 lbs of Colossal Gulf Shrimp
* 8 lbs of Maine Steamers (Yep, EIGHT pounds)
Or, you know, any combination of your seafood favorites! The offerings vary week to week depending on what's in and what's out, but there's always an exciting array. And then you can experiment with new recipes (like our Pecan-Crusted fish with remoulade from last week's Fish Friday post).
