Last week, I announced that a big change is coming to my site - I'm renaming it and re-launching with a fresh, new domain. I'm pretty excited to tell you the story behind my new name, which will be revealed this coming Tuesday, June 28th after 7 p.m.
In celebration of these fun changes, I'm partying at 5 Napkin Burger (also ringing in their new and very awesome private party space) with my closest friends, family and you, my readers.
I was truly touched by how many of you wrote in and told me why you'd like to attend and in turn why it is that you enjoy visiting my site. And while I wish I can announce everyone a winner, space prohibits me from it. But...I'd like to say thanks and give each and every one of you who participated a nice (and highly functional) present that showcases my new identity. Since the site name is still top secret, I'll reveal the prize this coming Wednesday.
And now without further ado...the lucky winners, who each get to bring a guest to the Foodista Re-Launch Party at 5 Napkin Burger:
Amber who said she loves 5 Napkin Burger because,
"As much as the burgers rock my world on their own, I do love the S'mores milkshake. 5 Napkin is all-around incredible."
Jenn who said, "I still dream of those lobster roll sliders I had pre-pregnancy (which I can now have again!). Love that you've got your finger on the pulse of 2 of my fave things: food and Astoria. Specifically food in Astoria."
Jessica H who said, "I love that your reviews are always kind-hearted because you obviously care about businesses in Astoria and LIC. Even if you don't LOVE a place, you are still positive. :) I read your blog for the new places to try in the hood since I trust your opinion as a fellow foodie. My fave menu item at 5 Napkin is definitely the Original 5 Napkin Burger and a vanilla milkshake. YUMMY!"
Robert who said, "What I love about this site is that it allows me to find some hidden gems or special party that I would never know about if I did not come to this site. Thanks for all your work! Oh and the Salted Caramel Milkshake is pretty amazing at Five Napkin:)"
All winners were chosen at random, via random.org. I'll be contacting each participant to award you your gift and each winner to give you details about the party.
I appreciate everyone participating and feel very lucky to have you as my readers. I can't wait to show you the new "me" very soon.
