I’m always very curious as to peoples favourite restaurants in the city. I'm always on the lookout for new and different places to enjoy favourite cuisines, and to pass on to others so they can enjoy, as well. I always want to create and foster dialogue when it comes to food, its why I started CommunityFoodist.com, in the first place. I am starting to use a new hashtag on Twitter from time to time "#FoodRevTO". This will help me track what people think with regards to the changes that our going on in the food movement in Toronto. I want to ask questions like: Who impresses you in our culinary scene? Where do you find good value and fresh ingredients? What is your comfort food? Where do you shop for your produce? Is it important for you to know who grows/raises your food? What is more important local or organic? And so on...
As incentive to participate in the questionnaire, I will be offering 2 people $20 gift certificates to DealTicker. Just tweet "I just entered to win a $20 gift certificate from @DealTickerTO through @foodie411's #FoodRevTO questionnaire ". In order to qualify to win a prize you must answer the questionnaire (at least in part), and tweet. The Contest will run from July 21st 2011 at 9AM EST, until July 26th at 5PM EST. A winner will be chosen at random by DealTicker staff.
There are a lot of deal sites out there, and I am not here to convince you that one is better than the other, but the kind folks at DealTicker offered me these prizes, so it's an opportunity to try out their services for the 2 lucky winners. Some recent foodie deals on DealTicker included: Sukho Thai, Asahi Sushi, Insomnia, Bombay Bhel, and more! Check them out here: dealticker.com, and here are some words from the DealTicker folks:
We are proud to say that we differ by having a Charity of the Month feature. Every month we pick a charity for which we raise awareness and funds. We have previously teamed up with Canadian Cancer Society, The Heart & Stroke foundation and many other notable charities. MADD has signed up for September, and other big charities are coming onboard as well.
We have a separate page on our site dedicated to this:
We also had Yahoo write about our initiative:
