Next week is Lunch Week

your lunch here

That had been a bagel.

We have something new coming up next week on AOA: Lunch Week.

It's pretty much what it sounds like -- a whole week with posts about... lunch. There will be other stuff, too, including all the usual items. But every day will have at least one post about lunch. Trust us, it'll be fun. We have some excellent contributors lined up to help out.

Here's where you come in

On the last day of Lunch Week (Friday, June 18) we want to do a post about what everyone had for lunch that week. Specifically, the Wednesday of that week (June 16).

So, next Wednesday we'd love for you to snap a pic of your lunch and send it to us at this email address: lunch |at| alloveralbany |dot| com. Please include what's in your lunch, where you got it and how you'd like to be identified.

Lunch can be whatever you're eating that day -- a PB&J from home, a sandwich at your desk from the deli, Chinese at the place down the street, whatever. If you ate it around noon that day, it's lunch.

Everyone who sends along a qualifying lunch photo will be entered in a drawing for, yep... A FREE LUNCH. We'll pick two winners at random. They'll get a $25 gift certificate to their favorite local lunch spot (yep, the winner gets to pick).

OK, to review

  1. Next Wednesday, snap a pic of your lunch and send it, along with a description, to lunch |at| alloveralbany |dot| com
  2. We'll post the photos and descriptions on Friday
  3. Two winners will get free lunch at the local spot of their choice
  4. We all have some fun

I can't wait! Lunch is the highlight of my work day.

This is a super cute idea. I always love new lunch ideas!

Does the lunch have to be bought from a restaurant? Or can you bring in something that you made from home?

@Danielle: Good question. It can totally be something from home -- a PB&J, leftovers, whatever.

I'll update the post to make that more clear. Thanks.

Fun! Now what to get for lunch next Wednesday...hmmm

Hmmm.. seared Foie Gras on a bagel with huckleberry reduction.

I'm going to do it.

Totally going to Gene's Fish Fry.

So, who wants to meet downtown for lunch on Wednesday? If I'm doing this, I'm not doing it alone.

B -- you're *not* going to snap a photo of your lunch by yourself? i'd meet up with you, if i got a lunch break at my job.

How fun. And I love how you say "OK, to review." Ha.

> Specifically, the Wednesday of that week (June 16).

It's gonna rain on Wednesday, and I have "fancy" lunch plans. What about Thursday :)

Totally put this on my Outlook calendar!

I just sent mine in from earlier today. Can't wait to see what everyone else ate for lunch.

Whatever it was, there is no way it was saltier than what I choked down. And I am a person who loves salt. Sometimes you eat the bear, and well sometimes... sometimes the bear eats you.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
