Some contests have crazy rules such as:

  • or watching a video about how seahorses give birth (what does that have to do with anything?) then finally getting a chance to win.

Well, this contest that New England Culinary Group (they created Eating Greenwich & Port Chester) is putting on is pretty darn easy.  Just like their FB page and you’ll be automatically entered into a contest to win one of three great restaurant prizes.  The contest ends by March 7, so you’ll need to get on that right now!  Would you like to know what the prizes are?

1) What’s the best thing to dip into cheese?

2)  What’s the best thing to dip into chocolate?

Good luck! :)
