Over the weekend, I noticed that the ticker on my Flickr account had passed the five million mark.
Now, I have no clue if that’s a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but I’m celebrating. To thank you all for reading this blog and visiting my Flickr photostream, I’m giving away a prize.
The winner, who will be selected at random, will receive a $100 gift certificate to one on the following list of some of my favorite restaurants (your choice):
1. Eleven Madison Park (actually it’s good for any of the Union Square Hospitality Group‘s restaurants in New York City, which include Maialino, Gramercy Tavern, and Union Square Cafe, among others)
2. Manresa (Los Gatos, California)
3. Avenues (Chicago)
4. bluestem (Kansas City)
5. The American Restaurant (Kansas City).
6. Le Bernardin (New York City)
7. Cafe Boulud (New York City)
8. frasca food & wine (Boulder)
9. niche (St. Louis)
10. Alex (Las Vegas)
11. ubuntu (Napa)
12. The French Laundry (Yountville)
Here’s what you have to do to win:
1. Follow me on Twitter and tweet a link to this post (if you’re already following me, simply tweet a link to this post). Make sure to include “@ulteriorepicure” in the tweet so I can keep track of the entries.
2. In the comment portion of this post, name the restaurant whose photographs were the first photos to be uploaded to my Flickr account. (Hint: the restaurant is not in the United States.)
3. If you do both 1 and 2, you will have a double entry.
The contest closes at midnight on December 24, 2010 (Central Standard Time). The winner will be announced here, at the bottom of this post, on Christmas day. Good luck!
WINNER: A big thanks to everyone who participated in this contest, and a double thanks to those of you who read this blog regularly. Have a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe new year!

Contest aside, I want to thank you for putting so much into this site. I can only travel rarely and thanks to you I feel like I have the opportunity to get the most from the vacations I can take. The best part of traveling is eating!
Er… through careful analysis and much original thought and without just copying the post above this one… I’ll go with…..Oud Sluis.
To be fair to everyone else, probably 2 million of those clicks were me.

Thank you. I am so flattered, thankful, and grateful. Never won anything in my life and have to work hard for everything I earn.
And this is the first Christmas off since 1990. Sadden by a shock news when a friend recently met in a kitchen collapsed and in coma. Then this bring me a smile on the face. Cheers to you again and please continue to share your passion for living and food with us for as long as you can enjoy it.
Life worth living and eating.
