Hey kids! It's time for another contest in which you answer some questions on Twitter and vie for a chance to win a free dinner. This time, the prize is a table at the first of Maverick's latest Mystery Dinner series. Allow us to explain.
At each of these Wednesday dinners in the month of October, beginning next week on October 10, diners will pick out of a hat to find out which of several mystery three-course menus they will be getting that evening. Possible themes include Halloween, eighties/nineties cuisine, or a Barbados-style family meal. Then during the meal, there will be a contest in which everyone in the room has to guess as many of the ingredients in each dish as they can, with five main ingredients in each being the focus just like on Top Chef! There will then be prizes given out for the best guessers, ranging from bottles of wine to gift certificates at the restaurant. The three-course dinners will be $40 per person, with $15 additional for wine pairings. (Reserve here, any Wednesday until the 31st.)
Now, for our contest: Make sure you follow us on to Twitter or Facebook (we're including the Twitter-averse in this one), and look for a couple of cuisine-related trivia questions in the next few days. To answer each question, please just reply to the tweet or comment on the Facebook post. On Monday at 4 p.m. we'll announce the winner, randomly selected from the correct answers, who will get dinner for two at Maverick's Mystery Dinner on October 10.
Thanks, and good luck.
