Exciting news!

SmallBalloons.jpgAs you know, this weekend Hal Laurent was the 1,000 commenter and the lucky recipient, maybe, of an advance copy of the Sun's dining guide.

Well, I have exciting news, Hal. I just got an e-mail from Anne Burger, marketing manager for, who says she wants to sweeten the pot. She wants to send you a $50 Visa gift card, to spend at the restaurant of your choice, and...wait for it...a stainless steel travel mug.

You will need to e-mail her your address at This is not a scam.

However, I would not give her your Social Security number. Ha ha. Just kidding.

On second thought, I'm going to give her your e-mail so she can get in touch with you directly. I can only imagine the number of people who will write in saying they are Hal so they can get that mug.

I'll never play the lottery again!! If only I am lucky enough to be the 2000th commenter, who knows what wealth I may receive.
