CLOSED: Valentine's Day Giveaway & Winner

On Wednesday, Febaruary 9 Taste of Pittsburgh posted its FIRST giveaway:

When writing my Romantic Valentine's Day Restaurants post, I was reminded of a Groupon I had purchased for Walnut Grill a few months back.  Sadly, that Groupon (worth $40) expires on 2/11/11 and PID and I don't have the free time to use it.  So, you lucky readers can reap the benefits of my forgetfulness!  The fine folks at Walnut Grill have also graciously agreed to throw in a complimentary bottle of house red or white wine to the winner as well!  Here are the details:

The pot: A $40 Groupon to Walnut Grill which you must use by 2/11 (the Groupon IS valid on Friday) and a complimentary bottle of house red or white wine courtesy of Walnut Grill

The deets: A comment on this blog post will earn you an entry.  You can earn bonus entries by doing one or all of the following things:
- "Liking" Taste of Pittsburgh and/or Walnut Grill on Facebook
- Following @tastePGHblog and/or @eatwalnut on Twitter
- Retweeting this blog post to your friends
*You can earn up to 5 additional entries by doing everything listed above. Once you do any of these things, you must comment another time for the additional entry telling me you've done so.  If you do this, I will double check it before you can win, so be honest!

The winner: I MUST choose a winner (via random drawing) by tomorrow at 6 p.m. in order to give you a solid three days to utilize the Groupon.  This means you have less than 24 hours to enter so get crackin' and tell your friends!  Once I choose a winner at 6 p.m. tomorrow, I will post the results on Facebook and Twitter and compose a new post to alert you.  If you do not claim your prize by 8 p.m. I will be forced to award a new winner since this is such a timely giveaway -- so CHECK THE BLOG AT 6! If I announce you as the winner, e-mail me at tasteofpittsburghblog[at]gmail[dot]com with your name and I will respond with your Groupon and alert the folks at Walnut Grill that you will be coming soon to claim your wine.


Congratulations to Marsha S. Morgenstern for winning this week's giveaway!

I chose her comment via True Random Number Generator:

If you send me an e-mail at tasteofpittsburghblog[at]gmail[dot]com by 8 p.m. this evening, I will respond with your Groupon and details on how to redeem your prize.

Thanks to all who entered -- keep your eyes out for more giveaways to come!

Congrats to Marsha!


  1. Just wanted to say thanks again! We went to Walnut Grill last Thurs night. It was our first time there. We started off by sharing the Calamari and ended by sharing Prantl's Burnt Almond Torte. For an entree I had the pork tenderloin special and hubby had the stuffed pork chop. We selected a Riesling to go with our meal.

    Hubby and I really enjoyed our entrees and the dessert. The appetizer came out cold but our server remedied that quickly. (I thought the inclusion of artichokes with the calamari was a nice touch.)

    Again, thank you!

  2. It is a valuable info and it really helpful for my How to join Groupon business. It delivers exactly what your business needs - a large group of consumers who are looking to spend.
