Taco Tuesdays will always be #1 in our hearts come the second day of the week, at least those parts of our hearts that we regularly devote to dining-oriented happenings.
But there has been a cuisine-cool contender in recent weeks, a Tuesday-based promotion that is all about sending love and business to the restaurants, and their staffs, impacted by the COVID-19 closures.
Which is all restaurants, in one way or another.
So The Great American Takeout, a Tuesday to-do, was formed in March 2020 as a way to spotlight eateries that are still working hard to serve the public during this time.
And each week brings a fresh twist to the process. On Tuesday, April 14? It's all about a mondo gift card giveaway, one that's sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company.
One hundred people "across the country," people who order out on that day, will win a gift card worth $50, while a grand prize winner will "win free takeout for a year" (worth $5,000).
How to be in the running for any of the gift cards? You guessed it: There are tags involved, and sharing a snapshot of your delicious meal on Instagram or Twitter.
Read everything you'll need to do to be in the running for a gift card that will buy more than a few slices of pizza, or egg rolls or tacos, or all of the above.
