ORIGINAL DESSERTS: THE GOLDEN TICKET

ORIGINAL DESSERTS: THE GOLDEN TICKET Tuesday, February 07, 2012

So Charlie Bucket walks into a candy factory. Or at least he does so every February 1st in Roald Dahl’s timeless children’s classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

For you see, that is the day that the reclusive and eccentric Willy Wonka opens his factory’s gates to the five lucky little boys and girls who found hidden in the wrapping of the chocolate bars they’ve purchased, Golden Tickets that in turn allowed them to gain entry to the world of chocolate waterfalls and Everlasting Gobstoppers.

So it makes some sense that, starting February 1, we initiated our own Golden Tickets program. Between now and the end of the month, we’re giving away, every day, three desserts to the finders of our Golden Tickets.

Join us for lunch or dinner, and when your host seats you, lift up the Daily Specials card attached to your menu and peek at its blank side. If the blank side’s not blank, that means it’s been stamped by our logo, which means you’ve found a Golden Ticket.

And this Golden Ticket you’ve found entitles you to a free dessert of your choice.

And the best part? There’ll be as many as three Golden Tickets randomly hidden out there during each meal, each day, just waiting for you to claim them.

In a month so often dedicated to love, this is just our way of saying, “We ♥ you.”
