On the menu today, we’re serving up a tasty special of $100.
A deliciously satisfying $100 gift card from CSN to be exact.
Are you salivating yet?
The gift card is good at any CSN online store, where you can shop till you drop for everything from a glam new end table to an ice cream maker to a chic new purse to a super sharp chef’s knife.
How to win?
Just tell me about the best food-related gift you’ve ever received. The most memorable response will win the $100 CSN gift card.
Contest is open only to residents of the continental United States and Canada. Entries must be received by the end of Oct. 2. The winner will be announced on Oct. 4.
To get you started, here’s my own response to that query:
Best food-related gift received: It was in the parking lot of the French Laundry restaurant many years ago, when my then-boyfriend, Meat Boy, took my hand and asked, “So, we’re in the parking lot of the French Laundry, your favorite restaurant, right?” I looked around, then looked at him, and said the obvious, “Uh, duh, yes, we are.”
Then, he reached into his pocket, pulled out a precious tiny blue box, and mustered up the courage to say, “That’s why I wanted to ask you this here….”
That, my friends, is how Meat Boy proposed to me at my favorite restaurant. Not inside the restaurant, amid fanfare and spectacle, but out back in the small parking lot, where it was private, low-key and just us. It was so him, and that was the most wonderful part of all.
