It doesn't matter whether you've been naughty or nice this year: When it comes to EatDenver's annual Dining Deck -- a caboodle of 52 gift cards worth $10 each that you can use at dozens of Denver's top food palaces, all members of the EatDenver Independent Restaurant Network -- Santa isn't remotely discriminatory.
The Dining Decks, the gifts that keep on giving, are $50 each (a huge bargain, considering that if you use all 52 cards, you'll save $520!) and available at www.eatdenver.com and all Tattered Cover locations. As an added incentive, $1 from the sale of each deck will go toward the EatDenver Serves Schools program, an initiative, in partnership with Slow Food Denver, that supports food awareness and education in Denver Public Schools.
But to help you get started with your stocking stuffers, we're giving away a slew of EatDenver Dining Decks -- five, to be exact -- to one very lucky Cafe Society reader, who can wow us with the best food-centric holiday haiku.
Please leave your words in the comments section below, and be sure to include a valid e-mail address so that we can contact you if you're the winner, which we'll announce tonight, by the stroke of 5 p.m.
The Dining Deck cards can be redeemed between January 1 and December 31, 2012, and the full list of participating restaurants is on the following page.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
