Here at Blackened Out Cupcakery and Chiropractic Clinic, we try to seize every opportunity we have to promote our local restaurants on a national level. So instead of doing something destructive to our dining scene (such as firing a James Beard award winning restaurant critic), we have decided to lend a helping hand to our friends at Zagat, who seek the assistance of our dear readers.
Zagat's New Orleans Restaurant Blog Contest is a way for you, the savy New Orleans local, to author restaurant reviews and provide your own personal input in the Zagat guide, which hopefully results in a more accurate representation of the restaurant industry in New Orleans. And as an added incentive to complete the survey, each time you vote for a restaurant it will be counted as an entry to win a $100 gift card from Whole Foods.
The prize will be awarded to the Blackened Out reader who writes the most witty, creative and informative review (judged by Zagat). Ergo, it is important that you fill out the "review" field, even though it's technically optional. The survey (and this contest) are live now through June 29th, so start voting as soon as the creative juices start flowing. Additionally, those readers who vote for 10 or more restaurants will be eligible to receive a free copy of the 2013 Zagat New Orleans guide when it's published next year (provided that you submit an address with your surveys). And as a final lagniappe, The Pope has offered to double the prize if the winning entry successfully incorporates the phrase "loving in your mouth" in the review.
