The Dine Originals Week Dare: (For November 12th to 18th)
Posted by cmh gourmand on November 11, 2012
It is Dine Originals Week again. As you might know I have a tradition of going to Pistacia Vera to wrap up my Dine Originals Week. Unfortunately the sampler is not the feature this time but the Quiche and Coffee choices are still a great deal for $10. Another tradition for me (when possible) is the Deepwood Lunch menu if I can sneak downtown for an afternoon meal. Here is the menu for all of the Dine Originals Restaurants and what they have to offer for the week. Take a long look first before reading on.
Many of you have heard of Taco Bell’s 4th Meal, which is what the company terms late night eating. I might call this the duder dinner or Jill’s Meal Deal (Chili Dooog!!!!). Many of my more literate or nerdy readers may be familiar with the eating habit of Hobbits, which I have adopted. The concept of second breakfast is well-known to Lord of the Rings fans. Those of you who follow me on Twitter know from my recent adventure in Athens that I am an advocate of 4th Dinner (O’Betty’s, Casa Nueva, O’Betty’s Number Two, and then the wild card of Jackie O’s, Burrito Buggy, or Miller’s Chicken). Tolkein scholars will say that Hobbits eat six to seven meals per day. This is what I have found to be the Hobbit meal structure:
Okay, so having reviewed all of this information, tell (in the comments section) me how you would play out your seven meals in one day using the Dine Originals menu. The best answer wins a Dine Originals Gift Certificate. If they are all incredible answers (which is my expectation of my fans) then I will draw a winner at random. The challenge will run until November 18th. Good Luck. I can say that I did do three Dine Originals meals in a day during the premiere year and was a better person for it.
Update: The entries were drawn at random (although I did disqualify Chairman L for not following the Hobbit Model). The winner is J. Novak who will receive a Dine Originals Certificate.
Thank you to all to all that entered you really did a great job at picking out places.
