Winner of Day 7: ECkids, Please contact me for your prize.

Day 7: Today’s giveaway is a $25 Gift Card to any restaurant from the Heavy Restaurant Group. Your choice of Lot No.3, Barrio or Purple. This gift card is brought to you by Google Places.

Resolution 7: Spend more time with your friends. Enjoy those moments. Life gets busy and it is easy to feel like you are connected with the people you love via Facebook. Make it your priority to go out with an old friend and have dinner. Moments like those are priceless.

For those new to Google places, Google Places is a local recommendation engine that connects people with the places they love. You can easily find, rate and review places you’re familiar with, share your opinions with friends, and as you and your friends rate and review more places, you’ll see recommendations based on your tastes and those of your friends in your local search results. Google Places is great for users, as it helps them find new places they might like, and it’s great for businesses and organizations to help them get discovered and increase awareness.

And before I continue. Foodportunity tickets are still on sale. Tickets sell out for this event so if you intend to go then don’t miss it. It is THE networking event for everyone food-related. Lots of food, chefs and networking for $25. Now go get your tickets. More information at . And Metropolitan Market is the main sponsor so that means that there will be lots of goodies.
