Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2011
Barbecuing during the summer is more than a pastime; it’s practically mandatory. Dads and grandpas across the nation fire up the grill, but the results aren’t always appetizing. Instead of choking down charred burgers and burnt steaks, lots of folks celebrate by visiting a local restaurant. That way everyone satisfies the yearly craving in time for the post-dinner fireworks show, and no one’s feelings get hurt. Plus there’s no mess to clean up afterward, which is a welcome relief for moms everywhere.
Many hungry tummies are settling for Dad’s home cooking this year because of financial troubles. Dining out doesn’t fit into a tight budget, unless someone else foots the bill. Thankfully, LocalPAGES.com and Kevin’s BBQ joints cooked up a special online contest in support of juicy, tender, sweet, and tangy meats everywhere! The websites invite diners to sink their teeth into succulent ribs, tri tip, and all the fixins for free. Contestants may win enough for a messy dinner date or be able to treat the entire family, depending on their level of involvement. Best of all, the lucky winner picks his or her favorite location for a truly savory experience. In a sense, redeeming the gift certificate will represent the highest compliment from an eatery’s loyal patron. As such, lots of BBQ spots are encouraging the faithful to toss their hats into the virtual ring. The reviews also serve as a kind of word of mouth advertising, the most effective type of free publicity.
Participants love the painless admission process driven by social media as well. Winning a $50 gift certificate is as easy as becoming a fan of LocalPAGES and Kevin's BBQ Joints on Facebook. Seal the deal by verifying these actions in the comment section of Kevin’s blog. Those willing to become Twitter followers add another $25 for a total of $75 worth of smoked goodness. The hardcore enthusiasts should review their preferred BBQ bistros on LocalPAGES to stake a claim on the $100 award. For the official rules and details, see Kevin’s blog post announcing the event. Contest runs until Friday, July 1st at 12pm PST.
