McCormick & Schmick’s Sweepstakes + a Giveaway

by Marcy on June 14, 2011 · 134 comments

In celebration of Father’s Day, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants is offering guests a chance to win the Golf Experience of a Lifetime. Now through Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, guests dining at any participating McCormick’s & Schmick’s restaurant are invited to enter for a chance to win a three-day trip for two to one of GOLF magazine’s Top 100 Courses to Play.

Entries to the Golf Experience of a Lifetime sweepstakes will be accepted at any participating McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant through Sunday, June 19. The grand prize winner and a guest will enjoy a weekend getaway including airfare, hotel accommodations and a day of golfing at their choice of one of the following courses: Pebble Beach Golf Link in Pebble Beach, Calif.; Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.; Bandon Dunes in Bandon, Ore.; or Pinehurst in Pinehurst, N.C.

During Father’s Day Weekend, June 17 to June 19, all participating McCormick & Schmick’s locations will also feature a special Chef’s Mixed Grill just for Dad, including Filet Medallion, Grilled Salmon, Signature Crab Cake and a decadent Chocolate Crème Brulee for dessert, all for just $29.95. Guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy a seasonal beverage menu featuring Tennessee Whiskey-based “Tee Up for Father’s Day” cocktails such as the Gentleman’s Tea, Clubhouse Lemonade and Father Knows Best as well as Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat ale and Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay.

One of the best meals that my husband and I have had out in recent months was at McCormick and Schmick’s for Valentine’s Day. We rarely eat out alone, let alone somewhere this nice, and the food (and wine, and dessert!) was AMAZING. One of my favorite things about our booth was that it had curtains that we could close – so it felt like we were in our own little room. I can’t wait to go back again some day, and I am thrilled that I have a $50 gift card to give away to one of you so that you can try McCormick and Schmick’s for yourself. (The gift card won’t cover you total bill, but it will at least put a dent in it!)

What am I giving away?

The best meal that I have had recently was at Sala (thai food) in the East Bay Area. The ambiance & view of the bay were amazing and everything from the appetizers to the dessert was soooooo yummy! We got a great deal at Costco and got 2 – $50 gift cards for only $50 so that made the meal even better :)

We went to St. Simon’s Island (in Georgia) a few weeks ago and had a divine meal at the Blackwater Grill. Their Boudin Fritters (sausage + rice, breaded and deep fried, served with garlic mayo) were practically life-changing! :D
