Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine Giveaway

Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine Giveaway

Mmm. Doesn't that chocolate lava cake look scrumptious? The desserts were the only things I liked from my visit to Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine - Newport Beach four years ago. I'd love a chance to revisit Roy's myself, but instead, you get to go.

That's right!

The PR folks at Roy's are generously giving me a $50 gift certificate to give to you so that you can experience chef Roy Yamaguchi's Hawaiian fusion cuisine for yourself.

Here's the PR spiel:
"From now until August 31, 2010, guests are invited to visit three Southern
California Roy’s restaurants to receive dining rewards and to be entered to win
an all-inclusive trip to Hawaii, where guests will enjoy a personal dinner with
founding chef Roy Yamaguchi.

The Roy’s L.A. Ohana Tour details include:
  • An inaugural trip to a participating Roy’s restaurant, where guests are awarded an Ohana Tour card to present at the next Roy’s location
  • On the second visit, guests will receive a complimentary Chocolate Soufflé (with purchase of entrée)
  • At the third location, guests will receive a $20 gift card (with purchase of entrée) and entry into the Hawaii sweepstakes
  • Restaurants participating in the tour include Roy’s Anaheim, Los Angeles, Newport Beach, Pasadena, and Woodland Hills locations"
The $50 gift certificate may be used at any of the above-mentioned Southern California Roy's locations so please make sure you're either within driving distance or will be in the area some time soon.

In order to win:

Leave a comment with an email address. Deadline is next Monday, July 5, at 11:59 p.m. I will pick a random winner after that and update this post with the announcement.

If I don't hear from you within three days, I will pick another winner. So, please make sure you leave a valid email address or check back to see if you've won. Yes, it seems silly, but I've had several winners of previous giveaways who never responded to my emails, or who didn't leave a way for me to contact them. Only one comment with your email address. I will delete duplicate comments. And if you have a common name, please make sure you have some type of identifier to distinguish you from other commenters.

You get two chances to win.
  • Leave a comment with your email address
  • Tweet: Win $50 gift certificate to Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine from @wanderchopstick http://bit.ly/bcyYoE
After tweeting, leave a second comment with the permalink to your tweet as proof.

Got that?

Comment once + Tweet once = Two chances to win a $50 gift certificate to Roy's restaurant.

Thank you to Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine restaurants and Allison of Formula PR Inc. for sponsoring this giveaway. And much thanks to Allison for correcting my name. For some reason, the folks at Formula PR kept addressing me as Veronique. Huh! Random! That's about as far from my real name as you could possibly get!

Good luck!

(Seriously, folks. Read the rules. I've deleted comments that weren't valid so they don't impact the drawing.

The gift certificate is only valid at the Southern California Roy's locations listed above. Which means that even if you live in a state with a Roy's restaurant, you cannot use the gift certificate there. Unless you tell me you'll be coming to Southern California to specifically eat at Roy's, you won't be able to redeem the gift certificate anyway.

The second entry of the tweet needs to permalink to your exact tweet, not your twitter handle, and not a generic comment about Roy's. It also needs to include the link back to this post. Just copy and paste what I told you to tweet.)
