Hungry for Denver Restaurant Week? Win a $50 gift certificate

Clear your calendar and unbuckle your belt: The tenth annual Denver Restaurant Week is only days away. And unlike past years, when it sprawled well into March, this time DRW is really a week long: From February 22 through February 28. (For the first time this year, there will also be a second round in the summer -- from August 23 through August 29). To whet your appetite for all the good meals ahead, we're giving away $50 gift certificates from some of the 300-plus participating restaurants. We've just awarded the first two, but we have more...

Here's our second winner, posted by lmonitz:

My first restaurant week experience was my first week in Denver last year. As part of an 8 hour first date (no exaggeration), this boy took me to TAG for pop rock sushi. Great meal. Terrible company. I was so bored I actually ordered the absinthe fountain to try to make him more interesting. Turns out not even 100 proof alcohol can help some people. I need a restaurant week redo.

The winter/summer split isn't the only change to Denver Restaurant Week this year. After a decade, the price has also gone up from the original $52.80 to $60 for a multi-course dinner for two, or $30 for one (not including tax or gratuity).
