As 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 BaltimoreSun.com, 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 BaltimoreSun.com travel mug.
You will need to e-mail her your address at email@example.com. 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.
