We have a winner of our Lou's Food Bar German beer brunch contest, in which we asked Cafe Society readers to answer this question: On average, how many poached eggs does Lou's serve during one brunch service? Congrats to Jon S, whose guess of 98 eggs was straight on the money. Jon, we'll send you an e-mail with info about how to claim your prize.
Original post: If you don't have tickets to the Great American Beer Festival, or even if you do, Lou's Food Bar, Frank Bonanno's restaurant in Sunnsyide, is adding to the weekend's beer-centric festivities by hosting a German beer brunch tomorrow at 11:30 a.m., pairing chef Mike Peshek's morning glories with suds from Prost Brewing -- and we're giving one Cafe Society reader and a guest the opportunity to attend the brunch for free.
Lou's will pour three Post beers -- its Weißbier, Altbier and Märzen Oktoberfest -- along with a Kolsch cocktail, and they'll accompany three different dishes: potato confit and greens with a sausage scone crouton; smoked duck hash with chimichurri, hollandaise and poached eggs; and an apple waffle topped with apple butter, pork belly and apple syrup.
Seats are $40 each and can be reserved by calling Lou's at 303-458-0336, or you can win seats for free by answering this question: On average, how many poached eggs does Lou's serve during one brunch service?
The person who comes the closest to the actual number without going over, will win. To enter, please submit your best guess, your name and a valid e-mail address (if you're already registered with MyVoiceNation, then we have your e-mail; if you're not, then we don't, and without an e-mail address, you can't win) in the comments section below.
We'll announce the winner by 5 p.m. tonight.
