Update: Drawing's closed! The winner's been emailed!
If you'd still like to suggest a local pairing, go for it -- you just won't be entered in the drawing.
Central Steak has a special five-course dinner paired with Sam Adams beers coming up June 28. We have a pair of tickets to the beer dinner, and we're giving them away. Maybe to you.
To enter the drawing, please answer this question:
What are two things in the Capital Region that would pair together well?
Example: Saratoga Springs' downtown paired with Troy's waterfront. Or whatever -- there are a lot of possibilities. Don't think too hard, it should be fun.
We'll draw one comment at random. That person will get the tickets.
The Sam Adams beer dinner at Central Steak starts at 6:30 pm on June 28 (a Thursday). Tickets are $50 -- reservations are available with a credit card by calling 456-1653. We hear the dinner is already more than half sold out.
The menu is after the jump.
Important: All comments must be submitted by noon on Tuesday (June 19, 2012) to be entered in the drawing. You must answer the question to be entered in the drawing. One entry per person, please. You must enter a valid email address (that you check regularly) with your comment (seriously, we want to give you the tickets). The winner will be notified via email by 5 pm on Tuesday and must respond by noon on Wednesday (June 20, 2012).
